The Rockaway pressing is in error and is unique between the three pressings where the PUBLISHER on the label for Don't Cry Daddy is Elvis Presley Music, Inc. (BMI) where the other two pressings have the PUBLISHER on the label as Gladys Music, Inc. (ASCAP). The official RECORDING INFORMATION worksheet for Don't Cry Daddy, recorded January 15, 1969 with serial number XPA5-1149, has the PUBLISHER as Elvis Presley Music, Inc. / B-n-B Music, Inc. (ASCAP) BMI and a note "If this selection is released first as a single, Gladys Music, Inc. (ASCAP) must appear on the label along with B-n-B Music, Inc. If the selection is re-released first as part of an LP and later as a single, only B-n-B Music. should appear on label or liner; however in either case the royalty is split.5
