Comments :  

Recorded for the movie "G. I. Blues". The version on the GI Blues album is a splice of the recording from April 28, and the one from May 6.
A large number of sources have stated that the fast version of this song was used on the soundtrack album. This is incorrect. The fast version never saw release until a 1991
alternate take was issued on Collectors Gold, and then officially on the Collector's Edition of GI Blues in 1997. Another alternate take featured on Close Up. For the fast version
see Big Boots (Fast Version).
