Notes


Except for Masters and Alternate Masters - all original 3-Track tapes are lost.

"Celluloid Rock vol. 2" (Cool Romeo) has a binaural mix used for the Masters.

Take 4 of Double Trouble has no ending - it just stops the same way as takes 1 and 3 end. This would indicate that the ending (with the band and The Jordanaires) was done later this day, rather than June 30, as the band and Jordanaires weren't present on June 30.

The movie version of I Love Only One Girl lasts 3:42 and is overdubbed with instruments. It has an instrumental intro / then in the middle of the 4th verse there is an instrumental bridge inserted, then continued with the remaining lyrics.

It Won't Be Long on the bootleg "From The Archives Volume 2" is just one channel removed and then centred from the Binaural tape.

After Take 1 of Long Legged Girl (With The Short Dress On), part of Old MacDonald can he heard for a few seconds.

The drum intro for Long Legged Girl (With The Short Dress On) is missing on 'Double Features', 'Command Performances' and "Celluloid Rock".

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.
