The undubbed masters on 'Our Memories Of Elvis'
weren't really the pure undubbed masters. They
were the fully overdubbed or regular masters but
with certain instruments and backing vocal channels
removed or stripped down.
The splice of Takes 8 and 7 of Find Out What's
Happening on FTD's 'Raised On Rock' Classic
Album has more dialogue from before Take 8 than
the actual Take 8 on the same album - The same
splice on 'Elvis At Stax' has more dialogue again.
The count-in for Take 9 of Find Out What's
Happening can be found in the dialogue after
Take 8 on FTD's 'Raised On Rock' Classic Album.
Elvis can be heard singing a few lines of Wasted
Years before Take 9 of I've Got A Thing
About You Baby.
Take 14 of I've Got A Thing About You Baby
on 'Essential Elvis Volume 5' has part of the
Take 6 Rehearsal edited in before the take.
On 'Unsurpassed Masters Volume 4' (Disc 15) I've
Got A Thing About You Baby is released both
as a 3-channel mix (Binaural) and as an instrumental
track 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.
Some of the Rough Mixes found on FTD's 'Raised
On Rock' and 'Good Times' Classic Album are longer
than the final Masters.
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.
All outtakes and masters used on the Sony 3xCD
set 'Elvis At Stax' have been completely remixed
and remastered from scratch.
