RCA's official session logs incorrectly list
the session times of some songs recorded:-
I'm Moving On is listed as being recorded
(15th) 5.30am - 8.30am instead of (14th) 10.00pm
A Little Bit Of Green is listed as being
recorded (14th) 10.00pm - 1.00am instead of (15th)
2.00am - 5.00am
Gentle On My Mind is listed as being recorded
(15th) 2.00am - 5.00am instead of (15th) 5.30am
There are two draft mono mix tapes, of which
at least one is dated February 28, 1969. A tape
log of a later tape copy of both these tapes (except
for the last three tracks of the second tape
- Don't Cry Daddy, A Little Bit Of Green
& You'll Think Of Me) was shown
in the magazine 'The Man and His Music' #13 listed
as 'Basic + Alt. Vocals'. This source is referred
to as the 'Draft mix tape'. This mono tape was
actually the source of the 1992 bootleg 'American
Rejects' (AR 1569), although the notes claimed
acetate source for that.
Take 7 of You'll Think Of Me (in Mono)
was released for the first time 'Officially' in
August 2007 on a "Suspicious Minds"
single that is part of the 'Elvis The King' singles
collection. It's not on the single that is part
of the box set, that one contains Take 7 of Suspicious
Minds as the extra track. The one with Take
7 comes in a jewel case and lists the track as
unreleased on the CD sticker.
Take 16 of You'll Think Of Me released
on 'Suspicious Minds - The Memphis 1969 Anthology'
and 'Elvis Chante Mort Shuman & Doc Pomus'
is incorrectly listed as being Take 14 - and also
has the left and right channels swapped.
Elvis sings one line of "Our Love And Aloha"
(Ernie Menehune - Roadrunner Records 1313 in 1958)
before You'll Think Of Me on 'Suspicious
Minds - The Memphis 1969 Anthology' - This is
actually from before Take 2 of Rubberneckin'
Elvis' vocals on Gentle On My Mind were
erased, and dubbed down to a Rhythm Track before
Elvis re-recorded his vocal on January
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.
