Ernst Jorgensen has managed to find the session tapes for the movie 'Live A Little, Love A Little'.

The discovery of the tapes has revealed that the vocal recording for 'A Little Less Conversation' that used for the re-
mix single, was not actually recorded for the 1968 NBC TV special, 'ELVIS'. The recording is actually take 2 of the
song with the ending repaired. You can always learn something new!!!

Unfortunately, the great news of finding these tapes does come with bad news? Ernst announced,
"these tapes were
the only ones we found from the MGM movies, and whereas proving something exists, is easy, it's not easy to do the
opposite. At this time we have exhausted our options to find these tapes – they would be in private hands if they
survived."

While the session only included four songs for the movie soundtrack, it did feature the wonderful 'A Little Less
Conversation'
and 'Edge Of Reality'. At last fans will get to hear TEN new session takes of 'A Little Less
Conversation', FIVE new takes of 'Edge Of Reality' plus five new versions of 'Wonderful World' and five attempts at
'Almost In Love' - including a rehearsal.

It is worth noting that session song #2005 was previously "unknown" but is now revealed as the first attempt at
'Almost In Love' which Elvis in the end would finish as an overdub.

This is one of the most exciting Elvis releases in a long while...and includes mostly unheard outtakes
