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.

Love Coming Down on 'The Jungle Room Sessions' is listed as Take 2, but has the count-in for Take 3.

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.
