The Elvis Information Network site published commends by Marty Lacker and Chips Morman on the announcements by George Klein he had "raw" tapes from the American Studio in his possession. Chips Moman said the only way George had that tape from American with the unsweetened songs cut there is to have taken it from the studio without permission.
Chips also said that George had sent him another tape with some songs on it claiming it was Elvis singing and wanted Chips to authenticate it as Elvis. Chips refused because it wasn't Elvis. Chips' comment to Marty Lacker is, "I thought George loved Elvis, why would he want to pass some impersonator off as Elvis and want me to authenticate it when he knew it wasn't Elvis."
Chips also said if George tried to release the unsweetened American songs he would take legal action against George.
Marty Lacker said: "My own opinion that if George did that he'd have a legal problem with BMG and EPE also. I doubt he'd do that."
