Notes

Except for masters and alternate masters - all original 3-Track tapes are lost.

Celluloid Rock Volume 2 (Cool Romeo) has a binaural mix used for the masters.

Take 10 of 'City By Night' may have been considered as alternate master as it survived (in stereo) on the master tape reel.

The master of 'Old MacDonald' is edited - Elvis' complete vocal ending is cut from the end of the song.

Before Take 2 of the vocal overdub (2014) of 'Old MacDonald', Elvis can be heard singing a line of 'When I Fall In Love'.

'Old MacDonald' on the bootlegs From The Archives Volume 1 and From The Archives Volume 2 (hidden track), and 'Could I Fall In Love' on the bootleg From The Archives Volume 2 (hidden track) is just one channel removed, and then centred, from the binaural tape.

Take 1 of the harmony vocal overdub (2012) of 'Could I Fall In Love' may have been considered as alternate master as it survived (in stereo) on the master tape reel. It is announced as "Twenty F... (announcer stumbles) Thirteen Take One" (instead of "Twenty Twelve"), and was released (without count-in) as 'vocal only' on FTD's Double Trouble extended soundtrack.

'Could I Fall In Love' is edited for final master. The original verse from 0:55 to 1:34 is omitted, and the intro is extended.

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.
