Notes

And I Love You So is incorrectly listed as 'And I Love Her So' in the session logs.

These sessions were brought about to record a new sound to old Elvis recordings.

The result was a complete album entitled 'Guitar Man' in 1981. A follow up CD was released by the collectors label 'Follow That Dream' in 2000 entitled 'Too Much Monkey Business' which contained additional tracks not released on the original LP.
