Notes

A different mix of the ending of Take 4 of 'The Wonder Of You' on the bootleg box set Rebooked At The International and the Madison bootlegs is spliced in before the dialogue before Take 4 and listed as being Take 3 - This is Fake!
The rehearsal is presented correctly with takes 2, 3 and 4 in full on the Legacy edition of On Stage.

'Walk A Mile In My Shoes' is listed on the bootleg set Rebooked At The International as being from this rehearsal, although it's the performance from February 18 Midnight Show that appears on the set.

Notes

This rehearsal is released almost complete on Follow That Dream's two book and eight CD set That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition, although the FTD set does omit the acetate playback sections, and sections where there are long, silent pauses in between rehearsals of the songs.

The parts of songs rehearsed on this date, which were used in the original That's The Way It Is movie, were physically cut from MGM's tapes, and are now lost. This explains how the part of 'The Next Step Is Love' heard in the movie is not on the FTD set, and also why 'Words' is all cut up and 'Polk Salad Annie' is not complete on the FTD set.

Notes

Without doubt, the best source for this rehearsal is Follow That Dream's two book and eight CD set That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition, where the rehearsal is presented (mostly) in stereo, although the FTD set does omit the acetate playback section, and some sections where there are long, silent pauses in between rehearsals of the songs.

The more complete rehearsal with everything, including the acetate playback, long pauses and some sections where Elvis is off mic', can be found on the Gravel Road bootleg set Get Down And Dirty, where it is presented in mono, presumably from MGM's own Nagra tapes.

Notes

On the 2015 bootleg 8xCD box-set That's The Way It Is - The Rehearsals, there is a tape legend showing a different track listing for the July 24 1970 rehearsal. It is possible that the tape legend is real and that the RCA tapes are edited together different to how the songs were actually performed, although there are more songs on RCA's tapes for this rehearsal than what the bootleg tape legend shows as being recorded:

That's All Right
I Got A Woman
The Wonder Of You
I've Lost You
The Next Step Is Love
Stranger In The Crowd
You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'
Something
Don't Cry Daddy
You Don't Have To Say You Love Me
Polk Salad Annie
Bridge Over Troubled Water
I Can't Stop Loving You
Just Pretend / Don't It Make You Wanna Go Home (few lines)
Sweet Caroline / Love Me Tender (few lines)
Words
Suspicious Minds
Don't Cry Daddy (#2)
Heart Of Rome
Can't Help Falling In Love

For the time being I will keep the track listing shown on my pages as it is on the RCA tapes.

The best source for this rehearsal is Follow That Dream's two book and eight CD set That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition, although the FTD set does omit some sections where there are long, silent pauses in between rehearsals of the songs.

The more complete rehearsal with everything, including long pauses and some longer sections can be found on the Gravel Road bootleg set The Brightest Star On Sunset Boulevard.

Notes

This rehearsal is released almost complete and in stereo on Follow That Dream's two book and eight CD set That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition, although the FTD set does omit some brief sections where there are long, silent pauses in between rehearsals of the songs, as well as take slates. This was presumably done to fit the complete rehearsal on one CD.

The first part of 'I Washed My Hands In Muddy Water' on FTD's That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition set is on the original tape FTD have, which is why they included it as part of the rehearsal. The song suddenly stops three-quarters of the way through and then starts again, this time playing the complete song, which is from a different source, and is a different mix and lower sound level, to the rest of the rehearsal.

There is a tape fault at the start of 'What'd I Say' which is edited out on most releases of the song, but is complete on FTD's That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition set.

On the Gravel Road bootleg set Plugged In & Geared Up the rehearsal is presented in binaural, with the band in the left channel and Elvis' vocals in the right channel.

Rehearsals continued after filming and audio recording was finished, and Elvis left at around 7.15pm.

Thanks to David English for information.

Notes

Some of this rehearsal was recorded with Elvis in one channel and the band in the other (binaural), and some of those songs have been released in this way by BMG and FTD on some releases. The lineup of how the rehearsal was recorded is as follows:

Elvis talking = mono
I've Lost You = mono
The Next Step Is Love = mono
Words = binaural
Cattle Call / Yodel = binaural
Twenty Days And Twenty Nights = binaural
Twenty Days And Twenty Nights (ending) = mono
Something (few lines) = mono
Farther Along = mono
Something = mono
Mother In Law (1 line) = mono
Santa Claus Is Back In Town = mono
Don't Cry Daddy = mono
In The Ghetto = mono
You Don't Have To Say You Love Me = binaural
Brifge Over Troubled Water = binaural

The rehearsal is released almost complete, albeit all in mono, on Follow That Dream's two book and eight CD set That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition, although the set does omit the first, incomplete version of 'Something'. The rehearsal was probably presented in mono for ease of listening, so as not to mix 2-track and mono recordings, although they did mix the two sets of stereo and mono recordings for the July 15 rehearsal.

The short section before Elvis arrives is Felton Jarvis with Mille Kirkham, The Sweet Inspirations and The Imperials rehearsing to acetates of 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me' and 'Twenty Days And Twenty Nights'. It is more than likely to be from the afternoon rehearsal, which was only for the backing vocal groups.

Notes

Almost all of the intro's of these songs from this rehearsal were not recorded by RCA. On FTD's Stage Rehearsal the intro's have been reconstructed from live performances of the same songs.

'Polk Salad Annie' is spliced from the two versions from this rehearsal on FTD's Stage Rehearsal and two book and eight CD set That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition, as follows:
0:00-0:18 = Rehearsal #2 (Intro)
0:18-1:12 = Rehearsal #1 (indecipherable fast talking, to "...let him keep playing - laugh")
1:12-1:37 = Rehearsal #2 ("Down in Louisiana" to "everybody said it was a shame")
1:37-1:44 = Rehearsal #1 ("cos' her mama was a-working on a chain gang...")
"a wretched, spiteful, overweight old woman" lyrics mixed out
1:44-2:41 = Rehearsal #2 ("little bitty pocket knife, man" lyrics mixed out)
2:41-3:50 = Rehearsal #1 ("Her daddy was lazy and no Count" to end)

Rather than presenting this rehearsal as it was originally recorded by RCA, on Follow That Dream's two book and eight CD set That's The Way It Is - 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition it was decided to do just a direct copy of FTD's previous stand-alone CD release Stage Rehearsal, on which the order of the rehearsal was all mixed up, and the introductions to the songs were spliced in from live performances of the same songs. Memphis Recording Service used an exact copy of the rehearsal as presented on FTD, on which the order of the rehearsal was all mixed up, on their International Presents Elvis - September 1970 2xCD release, but they managed to edit out some applause and use different intros on some songs.

It is possible that RCA's tape isn't all from August 10, and could in fact be a selection of recordings from the August 9 and 10 rehearsals.

Thanks to David English for information.
