Notes

Elvis can be heard singing a line of Funny How Time Slips Away during the introductions.

Elvis can be heard fooling around with the song "McArthur Park" after Tiger Man and again after Blue Suede Shoes.

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)
Jailhouse Rock (June 29 - 8.00pm)
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.
