Notes

Once a matrix number had been issued to a song, the same matrix number was used for all takes or different rehearsals of the same song, regardless of whether it was recorded on March 30 or 31.

Take 1 (complete) of 'Burning Love' is listed as Take 2 on the Madison bootleg Hillcrest Blues although it's announced "One" after the long false start of Take 1.

Take 2 of 'Burning Love' is listed as Take 3 on Hillcrest Blues although it's announced "Take 2".

Take 3 of 'Always On My Mind' is listed as Take 2 on the Madison bootleg Hillcrest Blues although it's announced "Three".

What is listed on the Victrola bootleg Elvis At The Greensboro Coliseum as "'Always On My Mind' Take 2 with additional dialogue" is actually the dialogue from after the first rehearsal, along with takes 1, 2 and 3.
