Notes

Both takes 3 and 5 of He Is My Everything have been cut from the session reel so the master is unknown. It could be either complete take 3 or 5 or a splice of the two takes.

The rehearsal before Take 1 of He Is My Everything on 'Easter Special' also contains one liners edited in from the Until It's Time For You To Go session on June 8.

Take 3 of Bosom Of Abraham released on 'Let It Roll' is far superior sound quality to the same take as released on 'Platinum'.

A remixed version of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face was featured on the '70's Box'.

An extended version of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face was featured on the cassette only release of the box set 'Elvis Aron Presley'.

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.

Thanks to Luuk Bonthond regarding extended versions of songs on the cassette version of 'Elvis Aron Presley'.
