|My review of the FTD classic album release He Touched Me as featured in Keith Flynn's The World Of Follow That Dream book.|
Earlier this year I received an e-mail from Keith Flynn, asking me if he could use five of the FTD reviews I had written on my blog for an upcoming project. Being familiar with Keith´s impressive Elvis Presley website and his part in the Ultimate Elvis – The Complete And Definite Recording Sessions three volume book, I was delighted to say yes. With a new job around the corner and another baby on its way, I then kind of forgot about it.
Until this October, when I read on the Elvis Files Facebook group about a three book set titled The World Of Follow That Dream chronicling ever release by FTD, by Keith Flynn & friends. I then remembered him asking permission to use a couple of my reviews and asked him if any of them was included in the book. When he answered that he had indeed used them I was thrilled, especially since it looked like a really beautiful package.
Keith then did a nice thing, sending me the pages from the book featuring my reviews as pdf:s. I thought the layout was neat and it was pretty cool to see my reviews getting new life this way. I also imagined them being read by fellow fans from around the globe, and that was a good feeling.
Listed below are the reviews from my blog that were used in the book:
- A Dixieland Delight (Soundboard Concert)
- How Great Thou Art (Classic Album)
- Elvis (Fool) (Classic Album)
- He Touched Me (Classic Album)
- Elvis Sings The Wonderful World Of Christmas (Classic Album)
Before signing off, I’d like to recommend an interview with Keith Flynn about his book on The Elvis Information Network website.
