The Mystery Train BlogLast year (two days ago), Kees wrote a guest post here on The Mystery Train Blog covering what he considers some of 2012’s Elvis news highlights.

To return the favor, I wrote a guest blog today for his site covering my Top 10 Elvis News Stories of 2012. Check it out over at Elvis Day By Day.

From Elvis Presley Boulevard to your CD player

From Elvis Presley Boulevard (1976)I’ve been a little behind on Elvis news lately, so I just found out that one of my favorite albums is getting an FTD release in October. From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee, recorded at Graceland in 1976, will now be an expanded, 2-CD edition. This marks yet another exciting release for 2012.

September 20, 2012, Update: Back In Memphis, the lesser of the two resulting albums of his 1969 American Sound Studio sessions, will be the FTD Classic Album release for December. Also to be released by FTD that month is a 2-CD package consisting of a 1972 rehearsal tape and an August 1972 Las Vegas show.
