They were edited to fit onto a CD, but the full versions were used on cassette, which is what I had, and was one of the first Elvis albums I bought as an adult.
Are You Lonsesome Tonight?
Kiss Me Quick
There's Always Me
Love Me Tender
She Wears My Ring
It's Now Or Never
Until It's Time For You To Go
You Don't Have To Say You Love Me
The Last Farewell
And I Love You So
I Miss You
I'll Never Fall In Love Again
Let It Be Me
Bridge Over Troubled Water
I Just Can't Help Believin'
You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'
The Wonder Of You

The original release on the 1962 album, Pot Luck with Elvis, has always sounded very, very strange to me
with two distinct Elvises singing together. What was that all about?... I never understood the purpose of it.
However, Elvis' spoken part in the song was the highlight (which was recorded separately and overdubbed onto/into the album track).
It wasn't as dramatic as the spoken parts of "That's When Your Heartaches Begin" or "Are You Lonesome Tonight", but it was still effective (in a positive way) nonetheless.
Then in 1965, the song was issued on RCA Victor single 47-8657 -- https://www.elvisrecords.com/im-yours-i ... y-highway/
According to Keith Flynn's fine "Elvis Presley Pages" site, the single was a splice of "Take 6 & work part 1 - ending - Take 2".
It sounded/sounds good except for one major thing... the spoken part was (and still is) missing! There's about 22 seconds of an organ playing with no singing/no spoken words. It's my belief that if the 1965 single had been issued with the spoken part included, it would've made enough difference to radio listeners for the song to go slightly higher than it did on the Billboard chart... #11.
And as the years roll along
Your joy and tears I'll gladly share
And when things go wrong dear
Just hold out your hand, and I'll be there
