Notes

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.

An edited (2:10) version of You Asked Me To, with omitted verse ("Knowin' how much I love you, after all I've been through, I'd turn and walk away from you, just because you asked me to"), was released in 1987 on the BMG Ariola release 'The Definitive Country Album'.
