The undubbed masters on 'Our Memories Of Elvis'
weren't really the pure undubbed masters. They
were the fully overdubbed or regular masters but
with certain instruments and backing vocal channels
removed or stripped down.
Elvis can be heard fooling around with Surrender
before Take 3 of If You Don't Come Back
on 'Essential Elvis Volume 5' but it is edited
in from before Take 6 of Love Song Of The Year
(December 12 1973).
Some of Elvis' vocals were mixed out of It's
Diff'rent Now when it appeared on the '70's
Box'. The more complete rehearsal can be found
on FTD's 'Raised On Rock' Classic Album, but is
edited at the end.
Elvis can be heard singing a line of Wasted
Years before Take 9 of Three Corn Patches
and can be heard singing a line of Three Coins
In A Fountain (From the 1954 movie 'Three
Coins In The Fountain') before Take 13 of Three
Take 3 of Take Good Care Of Her is listed
on 'Today, Tomorrow & Forever', but this is
actually Take 1 including some of the rehearsal
of Take 1. It is also incorrectly listed in the
'In And Outtakes' section of the booklet with
FTD's 'Good Times' Classic Album that Take 3 appeared
on 'Today, Tomorrow & Forever'.
The undubbed master of Take Good Care Of Her
on 'Our Memories Of Elvis' and "Pure Diamonds
Volume 3" have the left and right channels
An edited (2:10) version of Take Good Care
Of Her, with omitted verse ("Just take
good care of her, take good care of her..."
to "So remember when you take my only treasure..."),
was released in 1987 on the BMG Ariola release
'The Definitive Country Album'.
Some of the Rough Mixes found on FTD's 'Raised
On Rock' and 'Good Times' Classic Album are longer
than the final Masters.
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.

versions of songs on the BMG Ariola set of 'Definitive'
