It is unknown when Nancy Sinatra recorded Your Groovy Self, but it is likely that it could have been on this date, although the production number 2600 appears to be a movie overdub number.

Except for Masters and Alternate Masters - all original 4-Track tapes are lost.

"Celluloid Rock Volume 2" (Cool Romeo) has a binaural mix used for the Masters taken from the 4-Track tapes.

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.

Thanks to Ernst Jørgensen and Erik Rasmussen for providing the production numbers and take numbers for these songs.
