Notes

"Unsurpassed Masters" has a strange Stereo mix on songs from this session, with Elvis' vocals in the left channel. These are possibly taken from a 2-Track Stereo tape, rather than the original 3-Track tape.

Take 5 of Suspicion and Take 3 of She's Not You on the "Unsurpassed Masters" box, are just the count-in's for these takes edited in before the Spliced Masters (Thanks to Dave Barry for pointing this out).

Suspicion was released without backing vocals on the 1964 Spanish EP 'Viva Las Vegas' (3-20820). This was done by eliminating one of the stereo channels.

Suspicion was also released by mistake without backing vocals on the Italian 'Single' "Suspicion / (It's A) Long Lonely Highway" (PB-9121) in 1977, when RCA mistakenly eliminated one of the stereo channels when mixing to mono. Suspicion was again released without backing vocals on the 1980 1st pressing of the German RCA release 'Elvis Forever Volume 2' (with matrix number CL 42853). When RCA discovered the mistake they made a new LP master with new matrix number CPL 42853.

Take 1 of She's Not You is wrongly listed as Take 2 on 'Long Lonely Highway (FTD)' and 'Elvis Chante Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller'.

The movie 'Tickle Me' features a different version of I Feel That I've Known You Forever with overdubbed orchestral backing and unique vocals. 'Sessions III' lists this version as a splice of takes 1, 2 and 3 but this is incorrect. There is no part of take 1, 2 or 3 from this session, in the "Movie Version" of the song, and was probably just recorded on the movie set.

Different remixed versions of She's Not You can be found on 'Elvis 30 #1 Hits (E1)' and 'Top Ten Hits'.

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 Cayetano Chaves Prian for information regarding the Spanish EP release of 'Viva Las Vegas'.
