I would imagine the 'unreleased track' is a take from the FTD "Elvis is back" special edition set!

If so then it's not unrealsed Tony!

The FTD 'Elvis Is Back' featured takes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 & 10 (the master) of The Girl Of My Best Friend. So, RCA/BMG might still have a nice complete alternate take... I wonder which take it is, but I probably won't buy the magazine for just one outtake.

Getlow, RCA/BMG have put out cd's before with so called "previously unreleased" tracks, which were available on FTD. 'Love Elvis' is just one recent example.

One of several reasons I booght the Elvis IS Back FTD was to get all the sessions outtakes in one package. I hate to think they 'forgot' one!

The "unreleased" track of "Girl Of My Best Friend" on the LIFE CD is, in fact, take 3, which was previously released on the FTD sets, "Fame and Fortune" and "Elvis Is Back." Apparently, BMG isn't aware that the FTD label exists? At any rate, unless the track was released on the "main" label, BMG considers it to be "unreleased."

Heh, Heh. In a way I have to hand it to the greedy bastar_s. They certaintly know their marketing base. Release a bunch of meaningless outakes, but hold one (which is convenently found)....give me a break. The boobs will lap the book up for one more redundant track. Good for Theo who's not getting suckered into surrendering his hard earned money to these theives. Shame on the rest of you suckers! Hey I have an audence recording of the King sneezing at the Nassau Col. Anyone interested in buying it? Ever wonder how ,when, were, & why these tracks are found. Bet their marketing dept. has figured out the live expectancy of the fools that keep buying this & have will SOMEHOW find unreleasde outakes in the future to feed off your blood They are Vampires! Why don't you get it. By the way I think Jennifer Jones was the best looking women that ever lived. PS Steve V watch your spelling.

thanks old scudder - i'll make sure to point out your bad grammar next time. By the way, I saw this book over the weekend at Borders. I only noticed 2 unreleased photos at the end of the book. Not worth the $$ is you have the prior ones.
