Press note:
With The Elvis Files CD 1.1 CD, audiophile fans will like the great sounding stereo masters from Kid Galahad (The stereo masters as featured on the FTD album were muddied and with annoying added reverb) and Hound Dog is from a master tape source : You won't believe your ears! Also the Louisiana Hayride live broadcast on this CD is without any overdubs (the MRS label released this with a bass overdub from the original master).

The 1960 home demos presented on this CD are in stereo (with the exception of track 22). These recordings were recorded with two microphones.

You'll Never Walk Alone is an audience recording - on this CD in the best possible sound!

The 1977 live recordings all recorded from soundboard and once again in the best sound available!

The authenticity of the WHBQ broadcast is questionable but it's a very nice addition to this CD. Sun Studios sold this recording on cassettes in the late '80s. Also a very nice addition are the 3 overdubbed tracks from the Blue Suede Shoes ballet.
