To my ears only the first "Reach out to Jesus" and the last "Raised on rock"are real alternate takes.
Never heard an alternate of these two before then on this release,can anyone confirm this? smile.gif

The other tracks are fake recordings with a trackchanell left out... mad.gif

The tracks originates from reference recordings made for the colonel or either elvis;
The channels are in reverse to the original Lp masters;
Reach out to Jesus is an alternate take where as I presume it is take 2 or 9;
Other tracks are the masters without the overdubs done in overdub sessions / sometimes they are rough masters to be remixed when fit for release

Thanks for the information Colonel. I don't have this import myself, so this information now made me want to find it.

I must admit that im not a very big fan of the gospel. But there are several gospel songs i really like, because Elvis performance is top notch.

So all the stax tracks on this release are undubbed masters?

Hello tiger man

track 8 till 17 are in reversed channels to the originals masters as released on LP Raised on rock in 1973.
tracks 12 & 14 are without strings/extra guitar overdubs
some tracks are remixed but different to later releases

Meanwhile we know the alternate take is take 9 for Reach out to Jesus.
It is also released on FTD He touched me with a handful of false starts.
