The Viva Las Vegas Sessions 3 (FTD)°°~Soundtrack°~Bluray°°


These overdubs must now not exist on tape.

To create this movie version for their limited edition The Viva Las Vegas Sessions 3xCD set, Follow That Dream overlaid the finger snaps, hand claps, foot stamps and Ann-Margret's additional vocals from the actual movie soundtrack, to the stereo 2002-07. The blues ending is lifted from the Blu-Ray release of the movie, as this is in stereo, albeit a different stereo image to that of Take 7, which is why it sounds out of place to the rest of the track.
