Anita Wood
(He Treats Your Daughter Mean)
Wallace - Lance
Marvin Mueil BMI

Nita 126
Ruth Brown cover by the most serious of the Elvis girlfriends (1957 to 1962).  The song was penned by Johnny Wallace and Herbert Lance and issued in 1953 on Atlantic #986.

Anita Wood was not the greatest singer,  but this is  probably her best and certainly her most obscure.  Equally obscure was the Nita label (perhaps) named for her and (perhaps again) owned by Billy Riley.
