Notes

  • I'm Your Toy includes a brief spoken intro on the 12" single. This does not appear on the 7" or CD singles.
  • The versions of Cry, Cry, Cry and Wondering on the CD single feature subtle differences in Elvis' vocals.
  • Sleeve note: "For those of you who enjoyed our fortnight's excursion into country music here is a high light from our Albert Hall bash with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, a new arrangement of 'I'm Your Toy' by Robert Kirby, plus some dusty sides from our Nashville archives. Yours blue on blue, ELVIS COSTELLO."
