What we have of King Creole Is
take 3, 18 (alt master) from Jan. 15th,1958 (released on King Creole 97).
take 13 (master) from Jan. 23rd, 1958.
But never a total of 9 different takes.....!!!
the LP King Creole Acetates was released in 1987 (label Creole rec. 456)
it contains 10 versions King Creole / 3 versions Crawfish / 3 versions Steadfast loyal and true /
9 versions As long as I have you / 3 versions Lover doll
the LP originates from a cassette tape with all fake take numers / several versions are speeded up or slow down to give you the impression that's is an alternate take. this tape was used by a " money maker " to release the LP but is total fake and not worth to have it in any collection
the original selections were available on the LP: " From the beach to the bayou " and the later pressing " Beach to the bayou " and some more LP's
even on both LP's were wrong count in and take numbers announced but still original.
with the exception of King Creole track EX take 13 (unrepaired guitar solo) most of the King Creole alternates were released on CD Essential Elvis vol. 3
and only a few as mentioned are known to exist.
