"Viva Las Vegas" was Elvis' 15th movie release, although of course it was filmed before, but released after "Kissin' Cousins".
In some countries, like the United Kingdom, the movie and soundtrack of 'Viva Las Vegas' is called 'Love In Las Vegas'.
There have been four different pressings of this CD released by FTD, two in 2003 and two in 2014.
FTD released also a 2-LP in 2010 and in 2018 a 3-CD 8" boxset.
In November 2010 'Viva Las Vegas' was released as a double LP by FTD, which contained take 2 of 'If You Think I Don't Need You' and take 2 of 'The Lady Love Me' which are only available on that vinyl edition.
In August 2018 FTD released a new cd version of 'Viva Las Vegas', this time as a 3-CD boxset in a 8"x8" slipcase.
It includes more than an hour of previously unreleased false starts, break downs, and complete takes! All tracks have been recently remixed and mastered from the original 3-track session tapes. The slipcase replicates an original Session Reel box.
On the first pressing in 2003 the barcode was missing on the back cover.
That is corrected on the second pressing.
In 2014, on the third pressing the barcode was incomplete.
The first "8" is missing. That is corrected on the fourth pressing.
Errors on the both 2014 pressings:
On the back is printed "BMG Denmark 2003", altough the company is SONY and released in 2014.
On the disc is printed "(RPKB-0309)", below the text "Side 1", that should be "(RPKB-0390)".
The wrong recording dates are listed on the back cover as being July 7-9 1963 instead of July 9-11 1963.
