And the news is very good indeed, Ernst Jorgensen has managed to find the session tapes for this movie, and so we believe we have a very attractive release here.

The search also revealed that the vocal for 'A Little Less Conversation' used for the (Elvis Vs JXL) re-mix single, was not recorded for the TV special it's actually take 2 of the song with the ending repaired. You can always learn something new!!!

Unfortunately, these tapes were the only ones we found from the MGM movies, and whereas proving something exists, is easy, it's not easy to do the opposite. At this time we have exhausted our options to find these tapes they would be in private hands if they survived.

Meanwhile, here's something to look forward to ...
