Notes

Hey Jude is listed as "Track Only" in the session logs. It's possible that Elvis' vocals were not considered good enough for release at the time this song was recorded, although overdubs were still added to the song. This would explain why Hey Jude was not released with the rest of the songs from these sessions, in 1969, but was eventually released in 1972 on the album 'Elvis Now'.
