The Wonder Of Christmas

Mike Mettler from Sound And Vision interviewed Nick Patrick and Don Reedman, producers of the recent "If I Can Dream" and "The Wonder Of You" albums. They confirmed that they are working on a third installment in this series, a Christmas Album. 

Mike Mettler: Finally, will we see a third installment in this series in 2017? Do you have any ideas in mind for what you'd like to do next?

Nick Patrick: We hope very much that there will be a third Elvis installment, yes. We are just starting a Roy Orbison album, which we are very excited about.
Don Reedman: We are making an Elvis Christmas album, and, like Nick said, are also in the process of working on a Roy Orbison album. Exciting times ahead!
