Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On (overdub)
ZPA4 1799
  October 12 1970 (Mon)


Sessions III lists the date as being October 28 when brass and strings were overdubbed to 'Snowbird' but there is no indication in the session log of 'Snowbird' being overdubbed on this date. Confusingly though, there is a session log listing musicians for the unused horn overdubs for 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On', that also shows 'Snowbird' as having strings overdubbed by this date too. At the bottom right hand corner of the session log there is a hand written date "10/12" indicating a date of October 12 1970 for this overdub session.

Overdubbed horns were removed from 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On', at Elvis' insistence, before release.
