May 07 - TCB Band In Memphis And Graceland

Some members of Elvis' TCB Band were at work in Memphis yesterday. They worked in secret on a special project in the recording studio "Sam Phillips Recording", located on Madison Avenue. Also the people from Sony Music Entertainment including and Ernst Jorgensen, the major driving force behind the Follow That Dream collectors label, were present.

The Band also visited Graceland. Guitarist James Burton, piano player David Briggs, drummer Ronnie Tutt and bass player Norbert Putnam were at Graceland, and in particular in the Jungle Room. 

In February 1976, exactly forty years ago, Elvis recorded some songs, not in a recording studio, but at his home in Memphis in the famous Jungle Room. The FTD 'Jungle Room Sessions' is one of the most popular and best-selling albums in the series of Follow That Dream. 

Expectations are that a new album will be released by Sony Legacy Recordings, a special release around the Jungle Room Sessions to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of it. Norbert Putnam was only be continued at the session of February 1976.
