    Been enjoying this thread, thanks!

    Side question, has there been a CD release that has the original single mixes or complete single versions?

    cheers mate
    With the first thread I did, I really wanted people to listen to the songs, and it became obvious that that would be hard work spread over so many pages. I saw some body had done something similar on another thread and just experimented to figure what they did.
    To me any of these things is about the songs, and the easier you make it for folks, the more likely they are to listen :)

    Glad you're enjoying the thread. I assume the Golden Records albums would be what you're looking for, but I am no expert in these things. I find the fifties and sixties singles/ep's and albums terribly confusing.

    As far as songs that were mastered in both stereo and mono that were featured on singles, no, there is not a comprehensive collection of mono singles. In fact not all singles have been released on CD in mono. A few have and that would take quite a list of CDs that would get all that is available. However, most of the early 60s mono tracks are simply fold downs anyway. Also in a few cases the mono LP version differs from the mono single version, especially in the mid to late 60s and early 70s. If you have a mono switch on your preamp that compensates for the 3 dB boost of the summed center channel on a stereo recording, then you will get the equivalent of the early to mid 60s mono singles.

    Unlike The Beatles and other "rock era" recordings where mono was priority, RCA mixed for stereo as a priority and the mono masters were merely fold downs in these cases (as would be the efficient and logical way of doing things!) Sometimes RCA would add compression and reverb to the mono single master after the fact. And in a few cases like For LP Fans Only and A Date With Elvis they used this procedure for the mono LP tracks. (Elvis 50s output was exclusively mono, even in the cases when binaural tapes were used).

    Take Me To The Fair
    Written By :
    Roy C. Bennett & Sid Tepper

    Recorded :

    Radio Recorders, Hollywood, August 30 and September 22, 1962: September 22, 1962. take 8

    This is a pleasant little uptempo tune that obviously fits with the story line of the world's fair. There isn't anything particularly remarkable about this track, but it is certainly inoffensive and aside from a key modulation is a pretty standard little pop-rock song.

    Beyond The Bend and Relax aren't terribly interesting on their own, but taken together, they do a nice job of setting the album's mood. I really like Take Me To The Fair, though. It's cute and whimsical, and sometimes that's exactly what I want to listen to.

    EDIT: sorry I thought you were talking about GGG. The calendar was included with that LP.

    They also included a 1963 calendar:

    While the song isn't popular on this Forum, I really like it. It just breezes along, and I put it in the same category as tracks like Pocket Full of Rainbows and A Whistling Tune - all songs that I've come to appreciate a lot more over the years.

    I certainly don't dislike the song, I just think it was a weaker single than those prior.
    I actually think Fair is a pretty strong album, and that really surprised me to be honest

    I swear every time this song starts when I'm playing my songs on shuffle, I think it's Fever, which I like just a bit more. Nothing wrong this song, just disappointing that it's not what I was expecting

    I'm Falling in Love Tonight

    Another Elvis love song. Again I find the organ a little overbearing, and feel that a different setting on the organ would improve this song a lot. Certainly not bad at all, just from my perspective the organ sound somewhat spoils the song a little.

    Comment from Don Robertson:
    "On 'I'm Falling In Love Tonight', on which I played organ, they were trying to get me to do some kind of Ray Charles beat or something I wasn't familiar with. I guess I didn't understand what they wanted and really felt inadequate. I guess it worked out okay, but I felt like I wasn't living up to their expectations. I had hives from nerves; I was a mess. But Elvis was great; a real pro all the way through."

    For me "I'm Falling In Love Tonight" is one of the best songs on the album. The organ is very prominent, but I don't mind--the sound has a slight Viennese waltz flavor to it.

    The Elvis Aron Presley boxset (aka the Silver Box) is an essential purchase for any Elvis fan, even if almost everything there has been released elsewhere, on various FTDs and Legacy Editions and the like. The thematic sequencing is wonderful to listen to, and the sound - at least on the late-90s CD reissue - is full and warm.

    ...I only mention it here because the "Collectors' Gold From The Movie Years" side is a blast, and it contains two outtakes from the It Happened At The World's Fair album that, imvho, surpass the masters. Elvis seems more committed on take 1 of They Remind Me Too Much Of You, and although it takes a while for everyone to finally figure out how to kick off I'm Falling In Love Tonight, the final result of take 4 ends up being more romantic than the master. The mix also features a slightly more muted organ, which makes it even better (don't bother with the FTD, which has an unpleasantly harsh sound that's particularly unbecoming of this song).
