Notes

The definitive release of these sessions can be found on Follow That Dream's limited edition The His Hand In Mine Sessions 3xCD set, where everything has been restored, remixed and remastered from scratch, and all masters and outtakes are presented in the best possible sound.

Take 7 (FS & master) of 'Milky White Way' is wrongly listed as takes 7 & 8 on the Unsurpassed Masters box.

An edited (1:31) version of 'Milky White Way', which omitted the last verse ("I'm gonna meet God the father and God the son..."), was released in 1987 on the BMG Ariola release The Definitive Gospel Album.

A splice of takes 4 & 5 of 'His Hand In Mine', different to the spliced master, can be found on FTD's Fame And Fortune.

Takes 4 and 5 of His Hand In Mine on the Unsurpassed Masters box and Surrender both have the parts used for the spliced master edited in, presumable as these parts would have been cut from the tape. These have been restored on Follow That Dream's classic album release of His Hand In Mine and the limited edition The His Hand In Mine Sessions

When released as a single by The Statesmen Quartet (including writer Mosie Lister), 'He Knows Just What I Need' was listed as 'Jesus Knows What I Need'. Even on the original RCA paper work for the session and the His Hand In Mine album the title of the song was originally written as 'Jesus Knows What I Need'.

Both takes 7 and 9 of 'Surrender' may have been originally considered for the master, but Take 7 needed an ending, so a work part ending was tried out for it. In the end this idea was dropped in favour of Take 4 being used as the master instead.

Different remixed versions of 'Surrender' can be found on Elvis 30 #1 Hits (E1) and Top Ten Hits.

An edited (2:08) version of 'Joshua Fit The Battle', with omitted verse ("You may talk about your men of Gideon, you may brag about your men of Saul..."), was released in 1987 on the BMG Ariola release The Definitive Gospel Album.

The first false start of 'Swing Down Sweet Chariot' (Take 2) on Today, Tomorrow And Forever is actually from Take 1 but is not listed.

An edited (1:50) version of 'Swing Down Sweet Chariot', with omitted verse ("Ezekial went down in the middle of a field, he saw an angel workin' on a chariot wheel..."), was released in 1987 on the BMG Ariola release The Definitive Gospel Album.

Take 5 (FS & master) of 'Known Only To Him' is wrongly listed as takes 5 & 6 on the Unsurpassed Masters box.

Remixed versions of 'Crying In The Chapel' can be found on Elvis 30 #1 Hits (E1) and Top Ten Hits.

Originally, Take 3 of 'Crying In The Chapel' was not deemed suitable as being the master take, and was listed as "No Master" in the session logs, but was eventually released in 1965 as a single and in 1967 on the album How Great Thou' Art.

Thanks to Adrian V Stokes regarding the edited versions of songs on the BMG Ariola set of Definitive albums.

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.
