Notes

The master of I Slipped I Stumbled I Fell on FTD's 'Wild In The Country' Soundtrack, Sony's 'Complete Elvis Presley Masters' collection and the Franklin Mint package is the remixed version first used on the 'Double Features' release, and not the "Original" mix as found on FTD's 'Something For Everybody' Deluxe release. It's a very different mix on FTD's 'Wild In The Country' Soundtrack as Elvis' vocals are completely dry, whereas on 'Something For Everybody' Elvis' vocals are brought to the fore along with all instruments being present in the mix.

Takes 14, 15 and 16 of I Slipped I Stumbled I Fell on 'Close Up' and the Master (Take 13) and Alternate Master (Take 18) of I Slipped I Stumbled I Fell on 'Double Features' have the left and right channels swapped.

Elvis and Hope Lange can be heard singing the duet Husky Dusty Day in the movie 'Wild In The Country' and this short duet (Lifted from the Soundtrack) can be found on FTD's 'Wild In The Country' Soundtrack.

Interestingly, on the 2002 DVD release of 'Wild In The Country' the song Husky Dusty Day is in stereo which indicates that it was actually recorded in the studio.

On the spine of the cover of the first pressing of FTD's 'Wild In The Country' Soundtrack, "PRESLEY" is incorrectly written as 'PRESELY'.

The TCB CD "The Complete Wild in the Country Sessions" and the public domain release 'The Wild In The Country & Flaming Star Sessions' are actually a pretty good sources, although noisy, for this material if the pitch is corrected and only one channel kept, although they both run a little more than 5% too fast, which is a lot.

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.
