O Come, All Ye Faithful. Traditional; arranged by Elvis Presley. "On a Snowy Christmas Night". "The Wonderful World of Christmas"."It Won't Seem Like Christmas (Without You)". I'll Be Home on Christmas Day. "If I Get Home On Christmas Day". "Holly Leaves and Christmas Trees". When released on the original Rca- Lp- album back in fall of 1971, Elvis' long time/friend-co-producer:'Felton Jarvis' had basically... Used every studio-tape/ dubbing-trick he could come up with, when it came to making overdubs on,' If I Get Home On Christmas Day. , adding strings, horns and a lot of backing vocals, creating what I like to call a, Cool.. Another intimate and sensitive song is the pretty,'' Holly Leaves And Christmas Trees. And featuring a simple but effective arrangement for acoustic guitars and organ. The phrasing is a bit different at places on the previously unreleased takes 2 and 3.
It must have been a treat for Red watching Elvis working with his song in the studio, recording no less than five complete takes of it. Bonus Remix- Reload CD- has the 1985' Version w/ Diff- James Burton Solo. It would be interesting if. Could shed some light on this. RECORDING NOTES: Another song that offers some interesting studio dialog and rehearsal is' Silver Bells.
, the last song to be recorded on the first night. Before tackling the first take Elvis says. Charlie, why don't you guys do harmony with me and help me sing? After a false start, Elvis tells engineer Al Pachucki that he doesn't want the harmony to be on the record, just hear it to get it right. In his book'A Life In Music' Ernst Jorgensen.Describes this episode as'an uncomfortable impasse' but listening closely, I don't hear anything suggesting this, Elvis sounds polite and Al doesn't seem to take offense. OK, that's very good', he answers back, asking Charlie to turn an amplifier down. The second night of recordings kicked off in great style with Michael Jarrett's.'' I'll Be Home On Christmas Day. Seems relaxed and jokes around between takes.
When Felton Jarvis suggests they need a sandpaper effect, one of the musicians jokingly remarks'He wants to do his fingernails! To which Elvis responds laughingly,'Do that shit on your own time, Felton. You can get a manicure tomorrow, hell!
'' O Come, All Ye Faithful.' proves a return to the better and a much more inspirational Christmas performance. The previously unreleased take -2 has Elvis making a mistake as he begins to sing the second verse too early but is otherwise beautifully performed.It also runs longer than the master (take 1), featuring the first verse one more time at the end (this verse was spliced with take 1 on'Memories Of Christmas'). The voices singing with Elvis are unidentified, but according to the booklet it's most likely some members of Elvis' TCB- band and entourage, like Charlie Hodge. And Red West- Kathy Westmoreland- Ginger Holladay, Milille Kirkham. Incidentally, this is a song that I actually think benefited from the overdubs made a little more than a month later, giving it a more,'Churchly' sound. Of the remaining three Christmas songs recorded on the second night, no outtakes exist.' On A Snowy Christmas Night.' was recorded on the same reel that included the first six takes of,'' Winter Wonderland. Compensation comes in form of make of,'' I'll Be Home On Christmas Day. For some reason Elvis wanted to give the song a more solid and heavy beat, the result being a bluesier version. Rough, very rough', he exclaims after the take 2.
The third take, previously unreleased, has Elvis slightly messing up the extra verse (featuring Michael Jarrett's children). That doesn't stop him from delivering an enjoyable, funky version, urging the band along and telling them to add another verse. That's a lot better like that, Elvis', Felton Jarvis can be heard saying right after the ending. Obviously he's in a good mood here as well, kidding with the producer and the musicians.I didn't like that, that was too good. He jokes after an abandoned intro. Nothing went wrong so I couldn't criticize it.
For some reason, he breaks up laughing during take 6, and after take 7.. CD SEALED- Set/ Mint Condition!
