Notes:

Tracks 1 - 6 are from the RCA 6 record box set "A Golden Celebration" !

Tracks 1 and 2 are probably from the 1959 Germany recordings -vs- the often quoted Graceland 1960 home recordings. They were first released on the RCA record "A Legendary Performer Volume 4".

Tracks 3 - 5 are from the RCA record "A Golden Celebration" from 1985 , most likely taped in 1966. Elvis rehearsed "Dark Moon" with Charlie Hodge !

Track 9 probably recorded at Graceland in April 1974 and was released previously on the bootleg "The Colonels Collection".

Tracks 10 -1 5 have 2 different dates claimed : Sam Thompsons home in November 1973 or Jimmy Velvets private home. They have been re-released on a cd "A Private Moment With The King" !

Track 10 is the last known time that Elvis performed this 1968 TV Special song , here he performs an acoustic version !

Track 11 is a great version with an unknown verse thrown in.

Track 14 and 15 are sung as a medley and is GREAT !

Track 16 is the correct speed , undubbed and a full minute longer than the speeded up RCA release !

The master take 2 of "Way Down" is the undubbed and unmixed version.
