Notes

The count-In for Don't Leave Me Now was inserted before One Night Of Sin on 'Reconsider Baby'.

The two-bar guitar ending from One Night was spliced to the end of One Night Of Sin (January 18) on 'Reconsider Baby', replacing the original bass, drums and piano ending.

On the "Memory" release "The Jailhouse Rock Sessions" is Take 29 of Don't Leave Me Now but is listed as Take 6 (Track 10), this also gives the wrong impresion that that track is from the May 1957 sessions.

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.
