A great Elvis Camden LP finally on CD...but why is the intro

""Almost In Love" was a great Elvis LP to have when it was first released in 1970. At the time, most of these songs had only been released as singles, except for the track "Long Legged Girl", which was originally from the "Double Trouble" soundtrack. The sticker on the front of this CD claims that it was remastered...however, the guitar intro on "Almost In Love" is still shortened, just like it was on the original LP. Why wasn't the unedited master used here instead? However, we do get one change here that was an improvement. The song "Stay Away", which was only in mono on the original LP, is the stereo version from the "Double Features" series. Also, the reviewer named Lon above got it backwards. The original version of the LP included "Stay Away, Joe", and was later replaced with "Stay Away" in later pressings...not the other way around. When I first purchased this CD, it did list the song as "Stay Away, Joe" on the cover and the disc, but this was soon corrected in later pressings as well. The CD now has the song listed correctly as "Stay Away". A great Elvis compilation, and well worth purchasing because of the low price."
The first album I ever bought...

"...and everyone thought I was nuts because they had never heard any of the songs. A couple of decades later, "A Little Less Conversation" and "Rubberneckin" finally got their due in the form of remixes. I still prefer the original versions found on this collection, though. By the way, Paul, the track listing here on Amazon is incorrect. "Stay Away" was on the original release, too. "Stay Away, Joe" is on the soon-to-be-released "Let's Be Friends", also from the Camden catalog."
