Is This Fair Dinkum?

Does this really contain an alternate take?

Mint - Perhaps the most famous recording event in all of music's history. In 1953, the exact date is unknown, when Elvis Presley made his historic decision to enter the Memphis Recording Service on Union Ave. to record "My Happiness" backed with "That's When Your Heartaches Begin", he unknowingly began the greatest recording career of all time. These two songs would remain unreleased for almost 40 years when RCA would finally issue them on the "Complete 50's Masters" boxset. Incredibly this version of "That's When Your Heartaches Begin" is an alternate to the released version and has never been heard to this day. The beautiful white & red label features "Memphis Recording Service 706 Union - 37-7197-Memphis, Tenn." in red. Typed on two lines "That's When Your Heartaches Begin Elvis Pressley (misspelled)". Elvis' name is underlined in pen. On the second line it says "For radio station play only", under that written in ink "Humes" the name of Elvis' high school. This acetate, from the personal collection of Elvis Presley, is without a doubt the rarest record in the world!

Jim,

It's not an alternate take as such but a more 'complete' take. What is additional I don't know but there is only one take. The 'complete' take will be heard for the first time on Joseph Pirzada's Memphis Recording Service set which is imminent.
