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
on "Welcome To the Jungle - Way Down"
(Track 11) is the same as the version on 'Our
Memories Of Elvis'.
Take 2a of Way Down as heard on 'Platinum',
FTD's 'Jungle Room Sessions', a UK 2005 CD Single
and the bootleg "Welcome To the Jungle -
Way Down" is edited at the end - The last
chorus is looped but also has some vocals mixed
out too. The complete unedited Take 2a can be
found on FTD's Classic Album release of 'Moody
On some releases, including the newest remasters,
a dog can be heard barking at the end of Way
Down - It is most audible on the Rough Mix
Master on the bootleg "Welcome To the Jungle
- Way Down", and on FTD's Classic Album release
of 'Moody Blue'.
The Way Down session is not presented
in the correct order on the bootleg "Welcome
To the Jungle - Way Down", but is presented
correctly on FTD's Classic Album release of 'Moody
The composite of Pledging My Love on FTD's
Classic Album release of 'Moody Blue' is as follows:-
Rehearsal (0:00-0:48) up to "Making you happy's
my desire dear, loving you is my goal..."
Take 3 (0:48-3:19) "I'll forever love you"
to end (Faded)
The master of Pledging My Love is edited.
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.
