Notes

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.

The Undubbed Master of Moody Blue on the bootleg "More Pure Elvis" and all other sources listed except "Elvis Among Friends" is as stated above, as the backing vocals are not present apart from "Elvis Among Friends", which was recorded 'Live' on a cassette recorder.

Take 3 of Moody Blue is listed on 'The Jungle Room Sessions', but what we actually get on there is Take 7 (LFS), a line from the beginning of Take 8, the announcement of Take 4, then the announcement of and complete Take 5.

The master of Moody Blue is faded.

A different edited (2:25) version of Moody Blue, with omitted part of first and second chorus' ("I keep hangin' on, try to learn the song but I never do, Oh moody blue tell me who I'm talkin' to..."), was released in 1987 on the BMG Ariola release 'The Definitive Country Album'.

An edited (2:22) version of I'll Never Fall In Love Again, with omitted verses ("And it looks like I’m never gonna fall in love again. Fall in love, I’m never gonna fall in love, I mean it, I mean it, fall in love again. I gave my heart so easily, cast aside my pride. When I saw you in his arms baby I broke up and cried"), 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.

Thanks to Adrian V Stokes regarding the edited versions of songs on the BMG Ariola set of 'Definitive' albums.
