The takes of Mine on "There's Always
Me Volume 4" have the left and right channels
The unused instrumental track of Mine
was called out for by Elvis hoping to get a satisfactory
take, but he carried on recording live.
The takes of Just Call Me Lonesome on
'So High' and 'Great Country Songs' have the left
and right channels swapped.
Take 6 of Just Call Me Lonesome was used
instead of the master in 1980 for the "Guitar
Man" overdub sessions.
Elvis can be heard singing part of 'Ode To Billy
Joe' before the unedited master of Hi-Heel
Sneakers (Take 7) on the '60's Box' and 'La
Legende - Rock 'n' Roll'.
RCA referred to and first released the song Hi-Heel
Sneakers as 'High Heel Sneakers', but
were ordered to change it to the correct title
after it's first release.
An extended version of the already edited master
of Hi-Heel Sneakers can be found of the
Cassette version of the box set 'Elvis Aron Presley'.
The 'Master' of You Don't Know Me is Take
1, and it was originally released as a single,
and also released on 'Clambake'. It is also this
that appears on the FTD 'Clambake' Soundtrack,
the 30 disc 'Complete Elvis Presley Masters' collection
and the Franklin Mint package.
For some reason, the 'Master' that appeared on
the '60's Box', as well as 'Tomorrow Is A Long
Time' and the Japanese 'Complete Single Collection'
is spliced from Take 1 and the last chord of Take
2. The session log lists two timings for the song,
so maybe there has always been two 'Masters'.
You'll Never Walk Alone on 'Greatest Hits
Volume 1' and 'The Sound Of Your Cry' have the
left and right channels swapped.
The fake version of You'll Never Walk Alone
without The Jordanaires "Overdub" that
can be found on "The Colonels Collection"
appears to come from a stereo acetate but has
the right channel removed and then centred, as
you can clearly hear the Jordainaires vocals bleeding
through in the background.
Thanks to Luuk Bonthond regarding extended versions
of songs on the cassette version of 'Elvis Aron
Thanks to Gerald Fernandes for finding the 'Stereo'
intro to take 1 of You Don't Know Me on
the "RCA/Candlelite" 5 LP set released
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.
