The date is also unknown when the Backup Vocal
overdubs were added to Power Of My Love
- A possible explanation of this could be as follows:-
There is a page missing from the session logs
between March 25 and May 5 1969, and as there
appears to have been no backup vocals overdubbed
to any songs in May (Apart from May
6 & 7
where Brass was also overdubbed) it is safe to
assume that it is from March. The date of the
job number at the bottom of the March
25 overdub session log is March 28, so it
would be safe to assume that this missing overdub
session would be before March 28. The March 25
overdub session was for "Strings" and
"Backup Vocals" and was held from 2.00pm
until 5.00pm but it may well be that another session
was held in the evening of March 25 but just for
the backup vocalists (Sonja Montgomery, Millie
Kirkham, Dolores Edgin, Hurshell Wigington and
Joe Babcock) to add their vocals to the missing

Elvis can be heard singing part of Ernest Tubb's

actually comes from after take 4.

The takes of Do You Know Who I Am? on
"The American Way Volume 4" and "There's
Always Me Volume 2" have left and right channels
'Sessions III' lists Elvis' Harmony vocal overdub
of Do You Know Who I Am? as being done
on September 26, but this surely cannot be the
case as the strings and backup vocals were overdubbed
on March 25, and the acetate found on "Memphis
Memories" does not contain these overdubs,
meaning it must have been cut before then. The
most likely date for Elvis' Harmony vocal overdub
is February 22.
By taking out two of the four channels from the
rare Japanese Quadraphonic LP of 'From Elvis In
Memphis' is how the "Previously Unreleased
Versions" were created on the bootleg "The
Other Side Of Memphis" (Bilko).
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.
