Notes.
1.  The song "Flaming Star" would be the title track of ‘Elvis Sings Flaming Star’, 
available at first only through select retail stores featuring products by the 
Singer sewing machine company as a promotional tie-in with Presley's 1968 Christmas 
television special, which Singer had sponsored. This album would begin the series 
of Presley budget releases on the RCA Camden subsidiary label.
2.  I believe that this version is much closer to the original song’s chords, which marry
with the song’s tempo.
