A remixed version of and 'The Fair's Moving On' can be found on The Memphis Record.

By taking out two of the four channels from the rare Japanese Quadraphonic LP of From Elvis In Memphis is how the "previously unreleased versions" were created on the bootleg The Other Side Of Memphis (Bilko).

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.
