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 master take number for For The Heart is unknown.

A remixed version of Hurt can be found on 'Always On My Mind' and the bootleg "Welcome to The Jungle - Hurt".

Takes 1 to 4 of Danny Boy were recorded over and do not exist any more.

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 Josee Brus for help with identifying the one-liners sung during these sessions.
