2.MAKE ME KNOW IT:The first song Elvis recorded after his return from the army.This is Take 3.Other takes(16+17) were released on TTAF.


3.STUCK ON YOU:This take 2 version is very similar to the master with the exception of the ending being messed up.


4.FEVER:A very good Take 1.The sound here suffers from too much of bass.


5.GIRL OF MY BEST FRIEND:Take 6 is very similar to the master .


6.SOLDIER BOY:Takes 2&3 were released on the bootleg Colonel's Collection.This is take 1.


7.SURRENDER:This is take 9.Take 1 has been released on 60's boxset.

15.NIGHT RIDER:This song was used in the 1965 movie Tickle Me.This is take 5 which is the master version for the 1962 recordings.Takes 1+2+3 has been released on Always Me 4.


16.SUCH AN EASY QUESTION:Again used on the movie Tickle Me.Take 2 is a really splendid version of this underrated song.


17.SUSPICION:Take 2(unreleased).Take 1 is found on There's Always Me 1.


18.PLEASE DON'T DRAG THAT STRING AROUND:OK vesion considering its Take 1.


19.MEMPHIS TENNESSEE:Take 5 of this Chuck Berry song.Again its very similar to the master(take 6).This is the 1964 version.
