The master of Patch It Up was edited for
release. The unedited master can be found on 'Let
It Roll' but the intro' is clipped, and can also
be found on FTD's 'That's The Way It Is' Classic
Album although it's only partially overdubbed and faded on there.
The complete overdubbed unedited master can be
found on the Venus release "Unedited Masters
- Nashville 1971" as a bonus track.
The count-in for Take 9 of Patch It Up
can be found in the dialogue after Take 7 on FTD's
'That's The Way It Is' Classic Album.
'Sessions III' lists July 18 as being the date
when Brass & Strings were overdubbed to There
Goes My Everything, If I Were You, and
Only Believe but I doubt this date is correct
for these overdubs. In the Session Logs there
is a listing dated July 7 that lists all musicians
used for these overdubs (as listed in 'Sessions
III'). At the bottom right hand corner of the
Session Log there is a date of what looks to be
"06/30" indicating a date of June 30
1970 for this overdub session.
The original title of the 'Love Letters From
Elvis' album was entitled 'Festival' and was going
to include the following songs - Hence the inclusion
of The Sound Of Your Cry and Sylvia on FTD's 'Love
Letters From Elvis' Classic Album:-
The Sound Of Your Cry
Got My Mojo Working / Keep Your Hands Off Of It
I'll Never Know
It Ain't No Big Thing
This Is Our Dance
Heart Of Rome
When I'm Over You
If I Were You
Elvis also fooled around with the songs My
Little Friend and I Got A Woman at
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.
