I am trying to figure out the matrix and take numbers to "Don't Leave Me Now" released on the Elvis Close Up box. Does anyone happen to know? Is it 2016 or 2017 or both?

Track 19: Version 2017 take 21.

I'd like to know if anyone knows what version and take of this song is used on the 1992 promo cd The Complete 50's Masters.It is the final track
on the disc,which says :Original version.I don't believe it is.At least to my ears it sounds different,but I admit I have lost track of the various versions that have been released on this song.

This digi-pack cd carries BMG no.74321 102022.

Don`t Leave Me Now was recorded twice.

On Febr.- 23. 1957 as a studio version.
On May 9. - 1957 as a movie version for Jailhouse Rock.

I think in this case the orginal studio version is meant...anybody..??

The 'Count-In' before the master of "Don't Leave Me Now" from February 23 1957 was edited in before "One Night (Of Sin)" on the BMG release 'Reconsider Baby'

Just another useless bit of information not many people know :wink:

Yes, it's on the "Memory" CD 'For Movie Fans Only - Volume 1' but is just taken directly from the "Jailhouse Rock" movie soundtrack

You also find it on Original Film Music Vol.5 (import) and if I am not mistaken on the old boot vinyl Got A Lot Of Living To Do.
