The Elvis Medley - question concerning overdubbs / alt. vers

Thu Jul 10, 2003 10:40 am


I recently listened to the Elvis Medley (from 1982 I think it was), a medley I never really liked and therefor have never listened to.

To my surprise I found out, that there are overdubbs (or alt. vers.?) on most (all?) pieces of the medley, especially on Jailhouse Rock, Burning Love and Suspicious Minds. I have to admit that I enjoyed these overdubbs very much.

As I only have this medley (which I still don't like; I just would like to hear the full versions in their overdubbed mix), not the LP/CD, which is very hard to get (and not really worth it I think), here is my question: Are the full versions of the songs on this LP/CD, which contains the songs from the medley, overdubbed as well or are they original versions (this is what I have believed)? Are the overdubbed versions in their full length available on any import?

The LP holds only originals in addition to the medley!
