'Today, Tomorrow & Forever' has take 3 of
King Of The Whole Wide World (1st version)
listed but this is actually the last part of take
2 (LFS), then the count-in for take 3 (but no
take 3!), then the count-in for take 2 (announced
as Elvis says "you guys don't get paid any
overtime..."), then the complete take 1.
We get takes 1 and 2 in the correct order on 'Kid
Take 31 of King Of The Whole Wide World
(1st version) has the wrong Matrix Number (WPA1
2551) listed in the booklet for 'Kid Galahad (FTD)'.
Some of the original mono masters as first released
in 1962 were shortened for release. They are released
in their original form on 'Kid Galahad (FTD)'
along with the longer stereo masters as first
released on 'Double Features'. On Sony's 'Complete
Elvis Presley Masters' collection and the Franklin
Mint set they are released in their original edited
form but in stereo.
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.
