June 16 - From Bootlegs To Hollywood

Here's the very first look at the upcoming Folow That Dream book release 'From Memphis To Hollywood', a Flaming Star production written by David English. The book focusses on the road from Memphis back to the movie business in Hollywood, and the production of 'G.I. Blues'. The book features an album – not surprising the newly found original mono LP master for 'G.I. Blues'. The book is filled to the brim with great, rare and informative photos and documents (according to the press release).
