Notes

The definitive release of these sessions can be found on Follow That Dream's limited edition The Pot Luck Sessions 5xCD set, where everything has been mixed and remastered from scratch, and all masters and outtakes are presented in the best possible sound.

Unsurpassed Masters has a strange stereo mix on songs from this session, with Elvis' vocals in the left channel. These are possibly taken from a 2-Track stereo tape, rather than the original 3-Track tape.

The movie Tickle Me features a different version of 'I Feel That I've Known You Forever' with overdubbed orchestral backing and unique vocals. Sessions III lists this version as a splice of takes 1, 2 and 3 but this is incorrect. There is no part of take 1, 2 or 3 from this session, in the movie version of the song, and it was probably recorded at Paramount Sound Stage in October 1964.

Take 5 of 'Suspicion' on the Unsurpassed Masters bootleg box, is just the count-in for this take edited in before the spliced master (thanks to Dave Barry for pointing this out).

'Suspicion' was released without backing vocals on the 1964 Spanish EP Viva Las Vegas (3-20820). This was done by eliminating one of the stereo channels.

'Suspicion' was also released by mistake without backing vocals on the Italian single 'Suspicion / (It's A) Long Lonely Highway' (PB-9121) in 1977, when RCA mistakenly eliminated one of the stereo channels when mixing to mono. 'Suspicion' was again released without backing vocals on the 1980 1st pressing of the German RCA release Elvis Forever Volume 2 (with matrix number CL 42853). When RCA discovered the mistake they made a new LP master with new matrix number CPL 42853.

Take 1 of 'She's Not You' is wrongly listed as Take 2 on Long Lonely Highway (FTD) and Elvis Chante Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller.

After Take 3 of 'She's Not You' a work part ending was tried out for it, but in the end this idea was dropped in favour of the complete Take 3 being used as the master instead.

Different remixed versions of 'She's Not You' can be found on Elvis 30 #1 Hits (E1) and The Top Ten Hits.

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.

Thanks to Cayetano Chaves Prian for information regarding the Spanish EP release of Viva Las Vegas.
