Elvis again complained to the Colonel that RCA has "remastered" the sound on another one of his songs. This time the track in question was the one chosen to be the A-side of his next single; "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" Elvis felt that his voice has now been pushed to the front and brought up unnecessarily at the expense of the background vocals. He had threatened to go back into the studio and re-record the song if they can't get it right.
