Notes

The composite of takes first released on the A Golden Celebration box-set also contains dialogue etc... not found on FTD's A Date With Elvis release, indicating that this is not the full tape on A Date With Elvis.

Also, the takes of 'The Fool' on FTD's A Date With Elvis classic album don't match the same takes on the Memphis Recording Service book and 4xCD set Made In Germany - The Complete Private Recordings. For instance, the dialogue from after Take 4 on A Date With Elvis appears in the middle of track 21 on the MRS set, which is very confusing! This seems to be a different compostite of takes 2, 3 and 4 to the composite used on A Golden Celebration, but are different to the order of takes on the FTD.
