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.
Take 6 of Solitaire is listed on "Welcome
To The Jungle - Solitaire" but this is exactly
the same as what is on FTD's 'Made In Memphis'
listed as just being Take 7 - This is actually
just talking etc... from Takes 4 and 5. Take 4
is the recording of Elvis making erasures and
singing to himself - It runs 0:15. Take 5 is a
short false start where Elvis misses the note
on the first "lonely man" then does
the grunting and makes the comment about Neil
Sedaka - The context of the remark is missing
on 'Made In Memphis' and "Welcome To The
Jungle". Running time of Take 5 including
the singing, grunting and comment together is
0:33 and can be found on FTD's Classic Album 'From
Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee'.
Take 6 is actually a long false start where Ronnie
Tutt stops playing at 1:39, saying "We had
to stop, we were getting off track".
A remixed version of Solitaire can be
found on 'Always On My Mind' and the same remix
can also be found on "Welcome To The Jungle
An edited (2:43) version of Solitaire,
with omitted verses ("While life goes all
around him everywhere..." to "And every
road that takes him takes him down..."),
was released in 1987 on the BMG Ariola release
'The Definitive Love Album'.
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'
