The piano on Bringin' It Back on "Christmas
Today" is on the right channel and guitar
is on the left, whereas on the FTD of 'Today'
it is the other way around. The original vinyl
release of 'Today' we have piano (and guitar at
times) making an appearance on both speakers creating
a mono like feel if it weren't for the stereo
On "Christmas Today" is a different
mix of the undubbed master of Pieces Of My
Life with Elvis' vocals way back and the backing
vocals more up front in the mix.
Nothing is mentionned in "Sessions III"
regarding Pieces Of My Life having the
bass part re-done by Norbert Putnam on April 8,
although it was re-done on that date.
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.
