Notes

The "remake" of 'She's A Machine' (ETDX) has slightly different lyrics to the first version (EOVC) recorded, and the re-recording came about after Paramount objected to the lyrics in two lines of the song:-
She'a a love-making machine
She's a pot-taking machine

The lyrics for the "remake" are as follows, with the original lyrics shown in brackets:

Well she's a earth-quakin', hip-shakin', fun-lovin', man-breakin' machine, hey, hey, hey.
(original lyric line -"soul-breaking, love-makin' machine, hey, hey, hey".)
She's a smooth-talkin' man-stalkin', slow-walkin' cat, you know what I mean, hey, hey, hey.
She'll wrap those arms around you, like a grizzly bear she'll kiss you ever' fifteen minutes then let you up for air.
'Cause she's a earth-quakin', hip-shakin', fun-lovin` man-breakin' machine, hey, hey, hey.
(original lyric line - "soul-breakin', love-makin' machine, hey, hey, hey".)
(instrumental)
Well she's a wild-movin', good-grooving, heart-shakin, man-breakin' machine, hey, hey, hey
(original lyric - "pot-takin', love-makin' machine, hey, hey, hey")
She's a real-freezin' rough-squeezin' hell-teasin' cat, you know what I mean, hey, hey, hey.
She'll love ya lean and like it sweet as she can be, she'll make you blow your mind 'fore you can count from one two three.
'Cause she's a earth-quakin', hip-shakin' fun-lovin`, man-breakin' machine, hey, hey, hey
(original lyric line - "soul-breakin', love-makin' machine, hey, hey, hey.")
Well she's a earth-quakin', hip-shakin' fun-lovin`, man-breakin' machine, hey, hey, hey
(original lyric line - "soul-breakin', love-makin' machine, hey, hey, hey.")
Well she's a earth-quakin', hip-shakin' fun-lovin`, man-breakin' machine, hey, hey, hey
(original lyric line - "soul-breakin', love-makin' machine, hey, hey, hey.")

Takes 10 and 11 of the "remake" of 'She's A Machine' were both considered for use in the movie, with Take 10 being favoured more than Take 11, although the song was eventually not used in the movie at all.

The original 2-Track masters of the six songs used in the movie were released on LP in Australia, New Zealand and Argentina.

Poor digital echo on vocals plagues the Double Features release.

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.

Initially, two songs were selected for scene 94 of Easy Come, Easy Go, which was to be in a discotheque according to the script. The songs were 'Sweet Thing' (Tepper-Bennett) and 'Sand In The Nick Of Time' (Giant-Baum-Kaye), although both songs were rejected in the pre-selection for the movie and replaced by 'Love On The Rocks' (Tepper-Bennett). None of these songs were recorded. Finally, 'Leave My Woman Alone' was selected to be used for scene 94 in the movie and the backing track was laid down ready for Elvis to record his lead vocals, when it was then decided that the scene be dropped altogether from the movie. This is the reason why Elvis never finished the song 'Leave My Woman Alone'.

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.
