The Follow That Dream (FTD) collector's label has released 'A Date With Elvis' as a special double CD release in the Classic Album series and our order is on the way to us now. The set contains masters, outtakes and home recordings made during his Army time in Germany.
"On a very quick trip through my home town of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, Ian, Nigel and Howard came over to my home for a very quick recording session. After 5 hours recording we had about nine good tracks in the can. We all did a few more the next morning and then played a gig that night. In April of 2012 Ian came back over for another duo session with me and we got a further 5 tracks done. The bonus tracks come from a session that Ian and I did with John Morrison and Natalie his bass playing wife at the time. As Ian resides in Ireland I grab every opportunity I can to work and record with this master of Gypsy swing guitar".
