Notes

This rehearsal was privately recorded by Joe Esposito.

The short version of Oh Happy Day sang during this rehearsal is the version as recorded by Don Howard in 1952, and is not the same version of the song as sang by Elvis in rehearsals and live in Vegas during August 1970.

Guitar Boogie is also known as 'Baby What's Wrong', which was a 1963 hit by Lonnie Mack.

Thanks to Josee Brus and Henk Muller for help with identifying the songs and istrumentals played during this rehearsal.

Notes

This rehearsal was privately recorded by Joe Esposito.

Elvis can be heard fooling around with That's All Right, Peter Gunn (Instrumental) and Santa Claus Is Back In Town during the dialogue after Tiger Man. This isn't listed on FTD's 'Burbank 68', even though this segment was issued a 'Master' matrix number back in 1995 (CPA5 5121).
