The original LP edit of Saved runs slightly
faster compared to the Master on 'Memories' and
'Peace In The Valley', and is edited as follows:-
0:00-1:54 (Original NBC TV Special LP) = 0:00-1:57
1:55-2:35 (Original NBC TV Special LP) = 2:17-2:59
2:35-2:53 (Original NBC TV Special LP) = 3:40-3:58
The Master of Saved that appeared only
on the LP version of 'Elvis Sings Leiber &
Stoller' has a different intro edited in. "I
used t..." from "I used to smoke"
is edited in before "Drink".
The full length Gospel Medley on the Venus release
"Singer Presents Elvis" has a count-in
and additional dialoge at the end, but doesn't
have the extra ending as the full length version
on 'Memories' and 'Peace In The Valley' has.
On the CD 'Elvis Chante Leiber & Stoller'
are two versions of Saved. One is the regular
edited Master (but with left and right channels
reversed) that appeared on the original 'NBC TV
Special' album, and the other is the longer Master
with 'Encore Ending' that was released on 'Memories'.
What is listed as being an alternate take of
Saved on the Venus release "Singer
Presents Elvis" is whats left from
take 6 after the parts used for the spliced master
were physically cut from the tape. The master
appears to be spliced from take 5 (around 30 seconds)
/ take 6 / ending of take 5.
All versions of Trouble (WPA1 8030) and
Guitar Man (WPA1 8047) were assigned the
same matrix numbers.
'Sessions III' indicates that the Master of Trouble
(Used with Guitar Man) is Take 19, but
the Master is listed as Take 21 in 'A Life In
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.
