    The Nashville Marathon - 40th anniversary

    Amazingly, it's been 40 years since Elvis began his five-day session at Studio B Nashville, which led to some of his best recordings of the 1970s.

    Hope you enjoy my anniversary piece on the Nashville Marathon:

    Thought About This The Whole Week, What Great Sessions They Were.
    Wish They ( FTD )Would Do Something Bigger Than The NM As Great As
    That CD Is, It Would Be Great To Have A Special Edition Or Boxset To
    Celebrate It Properly. . . . Come On FTD. . . You Deleted It For A Reason I'm Sure.

    Anyone Else Agree With Me?

    It would make a very cool box set, but the outtakes are already being made available via the classic albums, so sales might suffer.

    The amazing thing about an Elvis session was that when he was "really into the recording process" so much product could be produced so quickly.
    Today it takes years for some artists to produce an album-they tinker and remix ad nauseum????

    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go
