Right, thanks !

My notes are a tad sketchy with regard to the 'unofficial' releases...... something I should work on.

From the info supplied by colonel snow & shanebrown, it seems the vocal-free backing track, unofficially released in 1976, is take 16, & was from the March, 1968, studio sessions for the Live a Little, Love a Little soundtrack & didn't really belong on an album of the 68 Comeback material* !

And, although the song was considered for the TV show, nothing actually got recorded in connection with it.

Additionally, the track used in the Ocean's 11 film, & subsequently re-mixed, very successfully, by Junkie XL was take 2 from the March sessions.

Hope I've got that right now !

*Keith Flynn explains that the 'dub-down' [on which Elvis' vocal is removed] was made at the request of Steve Binder as he was going to have Elvis sing the song in the 'Comeback Show' but never did, so in a sense it could be claimed that it belongs with the other material from the show.


That pretty much sums it up.

For the completists: It hurts me as released on LP If we can dream (TCB 4088) in november 1988 has different lyrics comparing other releases:
This version is taken from the production number; Elvis sung the first lines live and lip-synchred the other part.

IT HURTS ME TO SEE HIM TREAT YOU THE WAY THAT HE DOES
OH IT HURTS ME TO SEE YOU SIT AND CRY
WHEN I KNOW I COULD BE SO TRUE IF I HAD SOME ONE LIKE YOU
IT HURTS ME TO SEE THOSE TEARS IN YOUR EYES

THE WHOLE TOWN IS TALKING THEY'RE CALLING YOU A FOOL
FOR LIST'NING TO HIS SAME OLD LIES
OH WHEN I KNOW I COULD BE SO TRUE IF I HAD SOME ONE LIKE YOU
IT HURTS ME TO SEE THE WAY HE MAKES YOU CRY

YOU LOVE HIM SO MUCH YOU’RE TOO BLIND TO SEE
HE'S ONLY HE'S ONLY PLAYING A GAME, HE NEVER LOVED YOU HE NEVER WILL
AND DARLING DON'T YOU KNOW HE'LL NEVER CHANGE

I KNOW THAT HE NEVER WILL SET YOU FREE
BECAUSE HE'S JUST THAT KIND OF GUY
BUT IF YOU EVER TELL HIM YOU'RE THROUGH I'LL BE WAITING FOR YOU
WAITING TO HOLD YOU SO TIGHT WAITING TO KISS YOU GOODNIGHT
YES DARLING IF I HAD SOME ONE LIKE YOU

Here's the LP; to be honest: the TCB label hasn't released the best records over the years (poor sound).

UPDATE



I just wanted to let ALL of you know that I have written to ROLLING STONE editor re. if the mag will consider doing a 50th anniversary piece? Nothin' ventured Nothin' Gained.

P.S. If i do not get a response in 7 days time I will do so again.


Now what other rival mag can i drop a line to in relation to this milestone ?
