All tracks on "Celluloid Rock" have channels reversed to the same tracks on the "Memory" release "Elvis Sings Girls! Girls! Girls!", with Elvis' vocals in either the left or right channel. A better stereo image with Elvis' vocal centred, is presented on the same tracks on FTD's 'Girls! Girls! Girls!' soundtrack, 'Double Features - Kid Galahad / Girls! Girls! Girls!', 'Elvis Chante Leiber & Stoller', and "There's Always Me Volume 2".

We'll Be Together on 'Double Features' has left and right channels swapped as opposed to the same song released on the original LP and on FTD's 'Girls! Girls! Girls!' soundtrack.

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.
