Though RCA Victor Records had mandated a continuing stream of releases from the late rock star after his demise inthey had at first been lacklustre efforts -- not unlike the hodgepodge that characterized Presley's releases during his lifetime. Then Greg Geller came in and organized a series of excellent reissues, most centring on the 50th anniversary of Presley's birth in ByGeller was on his way out of RCA, and a new approach was needed.
Even under Geller, the reissues tended to focus on material that had already been made public in one form or another, with only the occasional studio outtake turning up. And in truth, there wasn't much in the can as far as unreleased performances of songs the public had never heard Presley sing. But there were plenty of alternate versions, and as many record companies would realize with the dawn of the CD era and the boxed set bonanza, the public was interested in hearing them.
Their work produced a track album containing nine recordings originally released from those films, plus 14 alternate takes or rarities, some of which were radically different from the better-known tracks. For example, there was a version of "Jailhouse Rock" with a prominent vocal overdub that had never been Heaven - Adriana Evans - Adriana Evans. Also, there was a fast take of "Loving You" that found Presley giving the song a comic rock treatment.
The album cracked open the door to the recording studio and gave fans a glimpse of how Presley's songs came together as he was recording them. RCA U. Semon's liner notes unabashedly called his creation "the most exciting single Young And Beautiful (Unreleased Version - Take 12) - Elvis Presley - Essential Elvis Presley release since [Presley's] untimely death," and when you looked over what had been released so far, you couldn't disagree. Geller's major accomplishments were multi-disc sets.
