The movie version of Shoppin' Around has
some extra vocals / instruments overdubbed to
the record version and is edited by cutting off
the last verse.
The movie version of Frankfort Special
has some extra vocals / horns and is edited to
2:20 (the repeated last verse in the record version
is cut off).
The ending of the movie version of Big Boots
is extended, where Elvis sings the last line twice
in the movie.
Some of the take numbers listed for Tonight's
All Right for Love (R10) on 'Elvis Aron Presley'
and 'Rare Elvis Volume 2' are incorrect. The correct
take order is 3, 4, 2, 7 (announced as Take 7)
The master of Tonight's All Right for Love
as released on a single in 1960 (Europe only)
and 'A Legendary Performer Volume 1' is spliced
at 0:59, but on the 1997 'G.I. Blues' version
it is spliced at 1:10. The original splice is
used on Sony's 'Complete Elvis Presley Masters'
collection and the Franklin Mint package.
A 2:10 minute extended master of Tonight's
All Right For Love was issued on the German
/ European pressing of the 'G.I. Blues' LP in
1960 in stereo, and can also be found on the German
Record Club RCA CD 'Elvis In Germany' (18565-2).
Most of these sessions are available on the UK
based 'Memphis Recording Service' official release
'GI Blues - The Cafe Europa Sessions'. Due to
public domain copyright issues, this set does
not contain tracks officially released by RCA
in the last 50 years.
FTD's Classic Album releases of 'G.I. Blues'
are undoubtably the best source for these 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.
Thanks to Ray Reeves for the Big Boots comparisons.
Thanks to David English for info regarding Loulie
Jean Norman providing the vocal for the movie
version of Pocketful Of Rainbows.
