    From the liner notes:
The purpose of this CD is to show the best of the alternate versions and the studio banter between takes recorded during these March '61 sessions. We have chosen the most interesting alternate takes from each of 15 songs. In the case of the title song "Blue Hawaii" we have released the complete session - in the other words we have included all the takes that were recorded.

As we all know, Elvis arrived in Hawaii an March 25, 1961 to perform at Bloch Arena, Pearl Harbor in order to raise money for the USS Arizona Memorial. To remember this generous event we have included the presentation of awards to Elvis.
Hawaii had always been a special place in Elvis' heart. This CD is dedicated to all people who have special place in their heart for Elvis.
