The definitive release of these sessions can be found on Follow That Dream's limited edition The Elvis Is Back Sessions 4xCD set, where everything has been restored and remastered from scratch, and all masters and outtakes are presented in the best possible sound.

A remixed version of 'It's Now Or Never' can be found on Elvis 30 #1 Hits (E1).

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.
