Notes

The undubbed master of For The Good Times is listed on the Venus release "Unedited Masters - Hollywood To Nashville 1972-1980" although it actually contains Elvis' Harmony vocal overdub. This appears to be from a tape source as opposed to the Harmony vocal overdub that appeared on "Pure Diamonds Volume 4" from two acetate sources.

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.
