This is the only thing I could find about Beyond the Reef, if you'll read the description. It must have been like most every other Elvis song, he heard it, loved it & recorded it. I'm not completely surprised that Red was the lead singer - only surprised that Col. Tom let it happen, but then it probably wasn't recorded & released while Elvis was alive. Anyone have info on that?
Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go
I think this song first appeared on the silver boxset from 1980.I think it was unreleased at the time.Somewhat of an informal recording if I remember right.
