Tomorrow Night was originally recorded

This overdub was originally slowed down by 8%
when released in 1965 on 'Elvis For Everyone',

it has Tomorrow Night running at the correct
speed it was recorded.
There is no information on matrix number SPA4

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.
The new remaster on disc 28 of Sony's 'Complete
Elvis Presley Masters' collection and the Franklin
Mint set has a note clipped from the beginning
of the song and is in electronic stereo. The 2007
remaster is not clipped and is in mono on the
2010 iTunes download of the 'Elvis For Everyone'
album and the 2012 reissue of 'Elvis For Everyone'
as part of the "Perfect Elvis Presley Collection"
set of 20 CD's housed in cardboard sleeves. These
2007 remasters were not used on FTD's 'A Boy From
Tupelo', the masters were all remastered again
from scratch on that set.
Incidentally, He'll Have To Go (SPA4 2332), originally recorded by Jim Reeves in 1959, and released in 1960, was also overdubbed with a new backing track during this session. (NB. Reeves was killed in an air crash in July 1964.)
This overdubbed version of He'll Have To Go was used for the opening and closing tracks of the album 'Yours Sincerely' (LSP 3709) in 1966.
Thanks to Michael Cavino for pointing out the
2007 remaster of Tomorrow Night being released
in full on iTunes.
