The master of 'Loving You' is documented as being Take 4, but there is a splice at 2:03 that isn't documented. It is unknown which other take is used for the spliced master, or if a vocal repair was done.

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.
