Notes

This is a scoring session for the movie Double Trouble.

Strings are overdubbed to the master take (2004-01) of 'There Is So Much World To See' - originally recorded on June 28 1966. It is this movie version that RCA originally chose to release on the Double Trouble album, rather than the intended record version (2003-10), which was in fact not used.

The released master of 'Double Trouble' was also overdubbed during this scoring session.

Except for masters and alternate masters - all original 3-Track tapes are lost.

Celluloid Rock Volume 2 (Cool Romeo) has a binaural mix used for the masters.

An approximation of how the musical score fits into the movie is shown below, but this is just an educated guess as some timings of tracks do not match timings on MGM's Daily Music Reports from the scoring sessions.

All timings in the 'Musical Breakdown' below are taken from the DVD release of the movie.

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.

Thanks to DarkShade on FECC for providing information on the production numbers.
