The movie 'Tickle Me' features
Long Lonely Highway
with overdubbed orchestral
backing, played over the opening credits - This
was done during post production of that movie.
On the LP '"Memphis Tennessee" there
are two acetates of Ask Me - listed as
'Number 1' and 'Number 2'. It is now known that
'Number 1' is actually Take 6, and 'Number 2'
is Take 2 from this session.
Memphis Tennessee and Ask Me were
both re-recorded on January
Although the matrix number for Blue River
is announced as PPA4 0307, this number (PWA4 0307)
was actually assigned to a song by Jeanne Pruett
called Little Black Book (47-8232). The
correct matrix number for Blue River is
SPA4 6768, this is for the complete Take 2 and
was assigned in 1965. To make Blue River
longer for release it was spliced from 0:00-1:25
and 0:44-1:31 of Take 2 and this was issued yet
another matrix number, SPA4 7357 in 1965.
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.
