On the bootleg "Celluloid Rock Volume 2"
and the public domain release 'The Wild In The
Country & Flaming Star Sessions' the master
of Flaming Star was released both as a
3-channel mix and as instrumental track with just
the two instrumental channels. This gives the
impression that the vocals were overdubbed, but
this is incorrect as slight bleeding of the vocal
track reveals how this mix was done.
What is interesting about these versions is that
the 'Track' actually contains the count-in, and
both the 'Track' and 'Vocal Overdub' are complete
and not faded at the end.
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.
