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 undubbed master
on "Welcome To the Jungle - Way Down"
(Track 11) is the same as the version on 'Our
Memories Of Elvis'.
Take 3 of It's Easy For You is a false start, then some dialogue, another false start, then an announcement for "Take 3" and some fooling around. On the Sony Legacy release 'Way Down In The Jungle Room' we get both false starts but with the dialogue in between edited out, and this is all edited in before Take 1 and is not listed on the cover. On the FTD classic album of 'Moody Blue' we only get from the dialogue after the first false start onwards.
Take 2a of Way Down as heard on 'Platinum',
FTD's 'Jungle Room Sessions', a UK 2005 CD Single
and the bootleg "Welcome To the Jungle -
Way Down" is edited at the end - The last
chorus is looped but also has some vocals mixed
The complete unedited Take 2a can be found on
FTD's Classic Album release of 'Moody Blue' and the Sony Legacy release 'Way Down In The Jungle Room'.
What is listed as being Take 2 of Way Down on 'Way Down In The Jungle Room' is actually Take 2 (SFS+SFS), Take 2b (SFS) and the complete unedited Take 2a.
On some releases, including the newest remasters,
a dog can be heard barking at the end of Way
Down - It is most audible on the Rough
Mix Master on the bootleg "Welcome To the
Jungle - Way Down", and on FTD's Classic
Album release of 'Moody Blue'.
The Way Down session is not presented
in the correct order on the bootleg "Welcome
To the Jungle - Way Down", but is presented
correctly on FTD's Classic Album release of 'Moody
The composite of Pledging My Love on FTD's
Classic Album release of 'Moody Blue' is as follows:-
Rehearsal (0:00-0:48) up to "Making you happy's
my desire dear, loving you is my goal..."
Take 3 (0:48-3:19) "I'll forever love you"
to end (Faded)
The master of Pledging My Love is edited.
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.
On the Sony Legacy release 'Way Down In The Jungle Room' all masters have been remastered and all outtakes have been remixed.
