Not that I'm aware.

The 1966 home recordings as featured on 'A Golden Celebration' [1984] and 'The Home Recordings' [1999] are BOTH derived from an acetate source [surface noise can still be heard on the latter].
However, on 'THR' said tracks appear to have been cleaned up a touch, although are quite heavily noise reduced in the process. .

The return over and over again to the chorus reminds me most of his unwillingness to let o of I'll Hold You In My Heart and the take of You'll Never Walk Alone on Platinum. In both of these cases, and Dark Moon, Presley's joy of music-making shines through.

Does the original tape still exist? What source was used for Complete Masters that Reidel apparently mastered?

No idea. Have you tried asking Ernst?

TCM is still from the acetate source.
