Notes

Except for masters and alternate masters - all original 3-Track tapes are lost.

'Could I Fall In Love' is edited for final master. The verse from 0:55 to 1:34 is omitted, and the intro is extended.

The Jordanaires are missing from the alternate master of 'Long Legged Girl (With The Short Dress On)' when this was released on the Today, Tomorrow And Forever box-set and FTD's extended soundtrack of Double Trouble, although their voices do appear on an acetate which was cut of this.

Thanks to Kevan Budd for initial info on the unedited 'There's So Much World To See' (2004) and 'Long Legged Girl (With The Short Dress On)' (2005).
