Notes

The original 2-track masters of the 6 songs used in the movie were released on LP in Australia, New Zealand and Argentina.

Poor digital echo on vocals plagues the 'Double Features' release.

In 'A Life In Music' it states that I'll Take Love is spliced from Takes 4, 8 and Pickup Take 3, but the booklet of FTD's 'Easy Come, Easy Go' Soundtrack states that it's only a splice of Take 4 and Pickup Take 3.

The intro of I'll Take Love was cut on some of the original mono and 2-track releases and even on "Celluloid Rock".

On "Celluloid Rock Volume 2" the masters from this session are released both as a 3-channel mix and as instrumental tracks with just the two instrumental channels. This gives the impression that the vocals were overdubbed, but this is incorrect as slight bleeding of the vocal track reveals how this mix was done.

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.
