Notes

All tracks on Celluloid Rock have channels reversed to the same tracks on the Memory release Elvis Sings Girls! Girls! Girls!, with Elvis' vocals in either the left or right channel. A better stereo image with Elvis' vocal centred, is presented on the same tracks on FTD's Girls! Girls! Girls! extended soundtrack, Double Features - Kid Galahad / Girls! Girls! Girls!, Out In Hollywood and Elvis Aron Presley.

At 1:16 of 'I Don't Want To' on Celluloid Rock the channels reverse, this may be a fault in the mastering, but the same track on Elvis Sings Girls! Girls! Girls! (Memory) doesn't have this fault.

The record version master of 'Thanks To The Rolling Sea' on Celluloid Rock and Elvis Sings Girls! Girls! Girls! (Memory) has a longer fade out compared to the same master on FTD's Girls! Girls! Girls! soundtrack, Double Features.

Take 10 of 'Thanks To The Rolling Sea' on Celluloid Rock and Elvis Sings Girls! Girls! Girls! (Memory) has a longer fade out compared to the same take on Elvis Aron Presley.

An extended Take 10 of 'Thanks To The Rolling Sea' can be found on the cassette version of the box-set Elvis Aron Presley, but still has the shorter fade out.

The movie version' (Take 10) of 'Thanks To The Rolling Sea' used in the movie, contains additional overdubbed instruments.

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 Luuk Bonthond regarding extended versions of songs on the cassette version of Elvis Aron Presley.
