Not sure if those years given are recording dates or release dates, but some look a tad odd.

Also some spelling mistakes like Good Luck Charme !

And they've included the words in brackets from the titles, but not always [Teddy Bear & (You're the) Devil in Disguise]

Release dates, but CD3 track 12 :shock:

I've Got To Find My Baby was first released in 1965 on the Girl Happy soundtrack album.

They sure meant "I've Got A Thing About You Baby".

Which song is actually included ?

And You'll Never Walk Alone from 1971? They must have meant the Camden album release of it.

The 1981 release didn't chart in the UK.

The 2004 one peaked at No.3 !

Irrelevant , they say on the 2004 promo that 'That's All Right' has never been released as a single in the U.K. before.

I wasn't going for 'relevance' - just adding a slither of info.

The error was so obvious, I didn't refer to it specifically...

Could that have meant as CD-Single?

Possibly.

In the UK, from July, 1981 to May, 1982 they quietly slipped out 7 Elvis vinyl singles in their Golden V Grooves series,
which also featured other artists.

The Elvis ones had [mostly] previously released singles titles but with different pairings:

I Just Can't Help Believin'/Bridge Over Troubled Water

An American Trilogy/Suspicious Minds

The Girl of My Best Friend/Suspicion

That's All Right/Harbour Lights

Good Rockin' Tonight/Mystery Train

If Everyday Was Like Christmas/Blue Christmas

Way Down/Moody Blue


The general public wasn't very aware of these releases & none of them charted.

Strangely, during this time, they also released the Are You Lonesome Tonight/From a Jack to a King pairing, but on their 'regular' label !

And that one charted !

Odd.

I imagine the Golden Grooves titles sold reasonably well because they were reissued later with picture sleeves.

No, a single is a single.
Vinyl, cassette or CD.

I haven't got any of them and haven't heard of them before.

As I said the releases were 'slipped out quietly' by RCA - & few fans knew about them...
