charro46: According to what I read somewhere "Colonel" Parker suggested those songs for use in the film. At any rate I just think of them as bonus songs. Most of the '60s soundtracks had them.

Wow, that's interesting!

I never had heard that those cuts were considered for the movie be4.

My only quibble about them appearing on this FTD is, I think Ernst and Roger should have tagged the extra tunes on the end of the disc under:

BONUS TRAX!!!

Thanks for the info...

All the information WHY these tracks are on there is in the booklet!

Luuk: Would it be possible for you to post that info here if it isn't to lengthy? Sure would appreciate it. Thank you.

Jerry -

This is from the Tickle Me booklet:

So it looks like it was between the colonel, Hill & Range & the film company as to which songs were considered & chosen.

If he went in to record new songs for the film....would there have been one hidden gem there?...as the film is poor,just as well they went for better songs than recording dross?.

iamhekev: I thought a little bit longer.. knowing these songs were being considered to the movie is there any possibility (even it is remote I guess) that clips were made for the film? Since it was not used it was archived????
Who knows?
