Notes

The original master of Blue Suede Shoes (LPA5 5817) is spliced from this performance and the performance of Blue Suede Shoes from the 6pm show of June 29. The spliced master was released on 'This Is Elvis' soundtrack album

Elvis can be heard singing a few lines of Trouble and Hound Dog before he sings Lawdy, Miss Clawdy.

Memories was sung live to a pre-recorded backing track done at Western Recorders on June 23.

The correct order of songs from the black leather suit portion of the 'NBC TV Special' are as follows:-

Lawdy, Miss Clawdy (June 27 - 8.00pm)
Baby, What You Want Me To Do (June 27 - 6.00pm #2)
Heartbreak Hotel (June 29 - 6.00pm)
Hound Dog (June 29 - 6.00pm)
All Shook Up (June 29 - 6.00pm)
Can't Help Falling In Love (June 29 - 6.00pm)

Love Me Tender (June 29 - 8.00pm)
Blue Christmas (June 27 - 8.00pm)
One Night (June 27 - 6.00pm #2)

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.
