We had to wait until January 1976 for Volume 2 but it was worth the wait. Fourteen tracks and this time no less than eight previously unreleased tracks and another booklet full of great images. Once again two previously unavailable tracks from the TV Special were included (Blue Suede Shoes and Baby What You Want Me To Do) along with a version of Blue Hawaii taped after the Aloha From Hawaii broadcast in 1973, an alternate take of I Want You, I Need You, I Love You, A Cane And A High Starched Collar (recorded for Flaming Star but unissued at the time) and an interview from 1956 recorded in Texas and a presentation of an award from 1961 in Hawaii. However, the highlight was the track Harbor Lights, a recording made at Sun Studios in July 1954. The released version of Such A Night featured on the album included a couple of false starts. Once again this release of older tracks outsold Elvis' current product.
Let Yourself Go and It Hurts Me neither of which were included in the Special. Elvis' movies were covered by unreleased versions of Frankfort Special and Guadalajara along with two further movie songs that never made the final cut, Danny (from King Creole) and Britches (from Flaming Star). An alternate take of Fame And Fortune and excerpts from an August 1965 interview from Lakeland, Florida along with another great booklet completed this excellent release.
Volume 4, the final one of the series, was released in 1983 featuring thirteen tracks with all but one (the infamous laughing version of Are You Lonesome Tonight?) making their first appearance. The 1968 TV Special archive was once again mined for an unreleased live performance of That's All Right while several tracks from the movie years were included (an alternate take of Wooden Heart, Plantation Rock, a duet with Ann Margaret on The Lady Loves Me and Swing Down Sweet Chariot taken from the film The Trouble With Girls). Both I'm Beginning To Forget You and Mona Lisa were taken from 'home' recordings made in Germany during Elvis army days while live versions of Reconsider Baby and I'll Remember You, taken from Elvis' Madison Square Garden shows in 1972 and a 1956 interview recorded in Tampa, Florida were also included. The final two unreleased tracks were the highlights with a Sun recording of When It Rains It Really Pours (including false starts) and a version of One Night with slight lyrical differences (most notably 'One Night Of Sin' instead of 'One Night With You') which probably prevented its release back in the fifties. More rare and unseen photos and memorabilia graced the pages of the accompanying booklet.
