Stay Away, Joe was the first of a string of films near the end of Presley's acting career whose soundtracks were not released in LP or even EP format. In fact, only "Stay Away" (sung to the tune of "Greensleeves") was released to coincide with the movie, as the B-side of the single "U.S. Male". "Stay Away, Joe" and "All I Needed Was the Rain" emerged on compilation albums a few years later, while the remaining tracks stayed unreleased until after Presley's death.
