RCA did a lot of enhancing for the album covers. On the album "Frankie & Johnny" they took away Elvis present face and replaced it with an earlier picture. You can see that on the pictures I have posted below. First you see a picture taken in 1964 as a promo for "Girl Happy". It is this picture that was also used to fabricate the "F & J" picture. So it was already done in the sixties.
The picture on "Today" is showing a July 1973 picture (taken in Nassau) and this one was also enhanced. Again the chain area was reworked and they took away a little bit off the waist.
Another "make over" job was done on the picture of "From Elvis Presley Boulevard". The cutted out Elvis much sharper than he was. Apparently the record company decided it was better to show the public an Elvis they thought we ought to see instead of the real one. This policy has now been taken over by EPE.
