Except for Masters and Alternate Masters - all
original 3-Track tapes are lost.
"Celluloid Rock Volume 2" (Cool Romeo)
has a binaural mix used for the Masters.
Take 10 of City By Night may have been
considered as 'Alternate Master' as it survived
(in Stereo) on the Master tape reel.
The Master of Old MacDonald is edited
- Elvis' complete vocal ending is cut from the
end of the song.
Before Take 2 of the 'Intro - Vocal Repair' (2014)
of Old MacDonald, Elvis can be heard singing
a line of "When I Fall In Love".
Old MacDonald on the bootlegs "From
The Archives Volume 1" and "From The
Archives Volume 2" (Hidden Track), and Could
I Fall In Love on the bootleg "From The
Archives Volume 2" (Hidden Track) is just
one channel removed, and then centred, from the
Binaural tape. Fake!
Take 1 of the 'Harmony Vocal' overdub (2015)
of Could I Fall In Love may have been considered
as 'Alternate Master' as it survived (in Stereo)
on the Master tape reel. It is announced as "Twenty
F... (Announcer stumbles) Thirteen Take One"
(instead of "Twenty Fifteen"), and was
released (without count-in) as 'Vocal Only' on
FTD's 'Double Trouble' Soundtrack..
Could I Fall In Love
is edited for final master. The original verse
from 0:55 to 1:34 is omitted, and the intro is
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.
