Often referred to as "The Lost Album", this selection of classic mid sixties Nashville recordings, was originally intended to be the official follow up to Elvis' 1962 album, "Pot Luck". Elvis basically had two separate recording careers in the 60's - one being the studio recordings made in Nashville, the other being the movie soundtracks, whose main function was to support the economically very important movies.

With the instant smash of Devil In Disguise everything looked ideal for the launch of this new studio album, but the accelerating commitment to the movies made Colonel Parker and RCA Records decide that there wasn't room in the frantic release schedule for both the soundtrack releases and a new studio album.

Consequently the material recorded for this album ended up being used as single B-sides and soundtrack album fillers.

By popular demand 'The Lost Album' is now available FOR THE ASKING. (from the album notes)
