Elvis Presley: From Nashville to Memphis: The Essential '60s Masters 1

Geoffrey Himes, Washington Post, The, 1 October 1993

IT'S EASY TO DISMISS ELVIS PRESLEY'S post-army career – easy, that is, until one is forced to sit down and listen to a song like 'Little Sister'. Perhaps the twangiest, twitchiest slice of rockabilly he ever recorded, the song features the Big E advising a young girl not to tease him with just a few kisses; the vocal is equally seductive and ominous, with the come-on in his creamy purr and the warning echoed by the barbed guitar licks.
