Notes

The movie version of Steadfast, Loyal & True is the first verse of the song, then repeated faster, and is possibly a splice of two different takes. Another possibility is that is was recorded on the movie set.

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.
