So close yet so far

Postby colonel snow » Mon Oct 02, 2017 1:42 pm

It looks that the master is different to the movie version; Elvis sings in the third verse extra "and" (see underlined in the lyrics) on the studio version; the studio version is a splice from take 3 & 4.

The movie version is take 3 according to the lyrics.

studio version
I REACH OUT FOR YOU, BUT EACH TIME I DO, I ALWAYS FIND YOU GONE
I KNOW LOVE IS NEW, I’LL TAKE CARE OF YOU, IN MY ARMS IS WHERE YOU BELONG
JUST A STEP, AWAY ARE WE FROM PARADISE
TAKE MY HAND,and COME AWAY TO PARADISE MY LOVE
I WANT YOU CLOSE TO ME, I NEED YOU DESPERATELY
OH HERE AM I, WAITING FOR YOU, HERE AM I, PRAYING FOR YOU
HERE AM I, SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR FROM PARADISE

movie version
I REACH OUT FOR YOU, BUT EACH TIME I DO, I ALWAYS FIND YOU GONE
I KNOW LOVE IS NEW, I’LL TAKE CARE OF YOU, IN MY ARMS IS WHERE YOU BELONG
JUST A STEP, AWAY ARE WE FROM PARADISE
TAKE MY HAND, COME AWAY TO PARADISE MY LOVE
I WANT YOU CLOSE TO ME, I NEED YOU DESPERATELY
OH HERE AM I, WAITING FOR YOU, HERE AM I, PRAYING FOR YOU
HERE AM I, SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR FROM PARADISE

Hah! One of my favourite tracks - and yet it was down to Legd Perf 6 that gave me reason to rediscover it.

Funny, have the bootleg come what may and I always thought they ripped the consumer off ..cause i thought both takes (i think there were 2 takes of so close yet so far from paradise on that bootleg?) were absolute identical and were the master, albeit in mono.
