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
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.
The movie version of The Love Machine is incorrectly listed in "Sessions III"
as being Take 12 but with verses swapped around.
Interestingly, the movie version is also listed as being Take 12 in Paramount's own paper work too.
The instrumental 'Track' (Take 1) of You Gotta
Stop on FTD's 'Easy Come, Easy Go' Soundtrack
is incorrectly listed as being Take 6 on the cover.
It is possible that Elvis sang as part of the
backing vocals on the instrumental track of Leave
My Woman Alone. Elvis (or someone sounding
like him) can clearly be heard at the beginning
of the track, and also less noticably throughout
the track (Sample).
Elvis never recorded his lead vocals to Leave
My Woman Alone.
The implied vocals recorded on the songs Aches
and Pains and Second Rate Street ('Elvis
Sessions'/Tunzi) hardly refer to vocals by Elvis
as his name is mentioned on the finished songs
("Elvis, Orch. and Jordanaires"), but
not on these. A guess is that Aches and Pains
(a.k.a. Go, Go, Jo) is the instrumental used
in the movie right after the opening/title track.
Other instrumental tracks used in the movie would
fit with the listed tracks too.
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.
