Notes

September 14 2012 - Ernst Jørgensen talking about the acetate of 'Nobody's Child' - "I have heard the recording - and it's definitely not Elvis - it doesn't even sound like him - more like an Elvis imitator".

Notes

It is possible that Elvis is singing along to the rhythm track for 'Indescribably Blue', which could indicate a recording date of June 1966 (possibly even June 11 1966 before he recorded his vocal overdub to the track in the studio on June 12 1966).
