This second acetate was always thought
to be I'll Never Stand In Your Way and Casual
However, when it was discovered a
few years ago, it turned out that the second song
was It Wouldn't Be the Same Without You not
Casual Love (or Casual Love Affair).
The song Casual Love Affair
was actually first listed as Casual Love
by biographer Jerry Hopkins in his book 'Elvis:
A Biography' published in 1971. The "Affair"
part was added later for some unknown reason. It
was then later stated that the song wasn't called
Casual Love at all, but rather Careless
It is possible that this second acetate
had been originally incorrectly listed as being
I'll Never Stand In Your Way / Casual
Love (or Careless Love) by someone hearing
the lyrics "I wasted my love on a careless
romance" (which is sung twice during the song)
while listening to It Wouldn't Be The Same Without
You, and then not quite catching the title.
This could explain quite a lot!
The receipt for the acetate was published
in Ger Rijff's book 'The Rock and Roll Years', published
by Elvis Unlimited, but it hasn't been verified
as being real, and may be fake, as the price ($8.25)
is wrong. It should be $3.98 for both sides, and
not $4.00+ for each side! (See below).
This time it was Sam who was at the
studio when Elvis came in for a second visit, and
he also made a note that Elvis had a good "Ballad"
In March of 2007, Sony decided to
go through all of Elvis' masters. They retransferred
everything and remastered all tracks including repairing
as many clicks, pops, bad edits and dropouts as
they could. They have used these newly mastered
recordings on their new releases since 2007 including
budget soundtracks, 'Legacy' releases, the 30 disc
'Complete Elvis Presley Masters' collection and
the Franklin Mint package.
