Elvis for everyone fan club have confirmed that there are no alternate versions of the songs on this release. Presumably they could be re-mixes, as suggested by whetherman, but this got re-mixed in translation. Nice cover using the New Zealand 1957 version. I wish FTD would do a xmas album if there are enough out takes of course.

So are these alternate recordings really alternate recordings or just the dreaded "Re-mix"

I wonder what's worse... a record company or a fanclub that is trying to rip fans? I guess the latter, the first have the excuse they really do it for everyone.
