Very well done. The two vocal parts fit together and complement each other pretty nicely.

I've messed around with these 2 recordings before. Mixing 2 decks playing simultaneously. I think the tempos are exactly the same, or it's the same instrumental take so the song stays in synch throughout. Easy. If you have 2 cd players, try it! It's a lot of fun. There's a great mix, using the best of each , still waiting to be found.

Oh, this is great. I had a ton of fun listening to this.

I was never too much of a fan of the "Give and Take," um, take. This is a pretty cool exercise, though.

Yes, that's me. I did that.

It's particularly fun on headphones, I think, and is more fun than listening to "Land Of Give And Take" on its own...

This is so cool! Thanks, it´s great on headphones. I think Elvis should post this on his facebook page. This deserves wider audience.

This really is fun to listen to. Could you imagine if this had been the released track? Separately panned out vocal tracks singing different melodies, with only a few overlapping lyrics? It'd be impossible to replicate live but I think it would've been a pretty cool album track.

Can this be downloaded anywhere? Would love to carry it around in my iPod.

Bravo, Connor! This is a great idea and a really fun listen. I second the motion to post this somewhere it can be downloaded.

I Hope cwr, the remixer, or anyone else doesn't mind me posting this here, I don't mean to offend anyone but as I downloaded and converted it, I figure anyone can

As the remixer, I certainly don't mind-- I don't "own" it and just did it for fun and with no intention of making any money off it, so it makes me happy that people are enjoying it.

I would hope that if Elvis or his people see this, they would enjoy it, too. It's really just the simplest thing-- anyone could've done it, I just wanted to hear what it would sound like and mashed 'em together.

Thanks to the remixer and uploader!

I usually don't like alternate versions, remixes and stuff like that. Even if it's the composer himself who does it (Elvis does it a lot and I don't like it). Because I'm kinda "jealous" with the songs I love and when I saw this I was like "Oh god, don't you dare to fuck up what is probably the most incredible song ever made!"

But I must say that this is great and it truly makes justice to the original. And I thought Beyond Belief was perfect already. Thanks.

I confess: I set that channel up. The weird thing about it is that a handful of the Warner-era videos are uploaded but blocked by Warners. It's not weird that they're blocking it-- it's entirely their right to do so, obviously-- it's just weird that they'd block the video for "The Other Side Of Summer" but not "Veronica"; "13 Steps Lead Down" but not "Sulky Girl"...

I was going to put the Juliet Letters videos online as well, but after uploading one I realized they'd just block 'em all.
