Elvis can be heard singing excerpts of Farther
Along and Wasted Years before Take
3 of Talk About The Good Times on 'Essential
Elvis Volume 5'. Farther Along is edited
in from Take 3 of Loving Arms and Wasted
Years is edited in from Take 9 of I've
Got A Thing About You Baby.
Talk About The Good Times was faded for
release by RCA. The complete unedited undubbed
master can be found on FTD's 'Good Times' classic
album release and the complete unedited overdubbed
master can be found on the Venus bootleg release
"Unedited Masters - Stax 1973".
Talk About The Good Times was remixed
when used on the '70's Box'.
Although it is the best source with regard to
sound quality apart from FTD's 'Good Times' Classic
Album, Talk About The Good Times runs approximately
2.4% too slow on the Japanese 20 Bit mastered
'Good Times' release.
During this session they also attempted to record
the Waylon Jennings hit We Had It All but
nothing was put down on tape.
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 Matthew Worsley for pointing out the
difference on the Japanese 'Good Times' release.
