Re: ATUB Font on cover

I did actually ask Steve via Facebook private message. I said the information was for a friend so maybe it overlapped with WIWC's query and Steve chose to focus on that. When I talked to him about his work for Elvis he mentioned that he had no way of getting in touch with Patrick Swan so maybe that ...

Re: Visiting the location of Am-Pro Studios, London, where Elvis made recordings.

Roger Bechirian just responded to a query via Facebook- This was Nicks house with the studio on the ground floor. It was originally owned by Tony Visconti. Jake Riviera bought the house initially then Nick took the whole place over. I have no idea if Johnny Cash stayed here, but obviously Carlene w...

The CD is now available for ordering from the band's site - https://www.musicglue.com/biblecodesundays/products/walk-like-kings-cd-album Listening to it I reckon Elvis sings the second verse of 'Willie Redmond's Volunteers' and is lead vocal on the chorus just after that verse.

'mesmerizes with a rainbow of textures' - sorry , I still can't justify buying it yet again. For the moment. 'Mobile Fidelity's hybrid SACD of Painted from Memory transforms the 1998 set into an essential component of any library. Always an effort that rewarded solitary listening, it now breathes wi...
