The original 2-track masters of the 6 songs used
in the movie were released on LP in Australia,
New Zealand and Argentina.
Poor digital echo on vocals plagues the 'Double
The lyric sheet for Easy Come, Easy Go shows a third verse which was not eventually recorded by Elvis.
In 'A Life In Music' it states that I'll Take
Love is spliced from Takes 4, 8 and Pickup
Take 3, but it's only a splice
of Take 4 and Pickup Take 3.
The intro of I'll Take Love was cut on
some of the original mono and 2-track releases
and even on "Celluloid Rock".
The originally planned master of The Love Machine was to be a composite of Take 11 (DOVC-11) and Take 4 of a repaired ending (D1OVC-04), but this idea was dropped in favour of continuing recording the song again from Take 12 onwards the following day.
On "Celluloid Rock Volume 2" the masters
from this session are released both as a 3-channel
mix and as instrumental tracks with just the two
instrumental channels. This gives the impression
that the vocals were overdubbed, but this is incorrect
as slight bleeding of the vocal track reveals
how this mix was done.
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.
