Notes

All songs were recorded in Binaural.

At around 13 minutes into the movie 'Loving You' a forty second instrumental version of Candy Kisses can be heard but it's unknown when this was recorded or it it was just recorded on the movie set. It had been rumoured over the years that Elvis actually laid down vocals for this song, but no proof has ever surfaced.

On the Electrovox acetate of Lonesome Cowboy it is listed as being "C 20" but on the Radio Recorders acetate it's listed as the spliced master "C 25/20". This appears to be a mistake on the Electrovox acetate.

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.
