June 25 - New Duets

Two new duets are in the works. On the FECC forum a posting was made quoting Cliff Richard during a recent free concert in New York saying he got approval to record "Blue Suede Shoes" with Elvis for his next album "The Fabulous Rock n Roll Songbook Volume 2". 

Barbra Streisand's upcoming all-star duets album is nearing completion, according to one of its producers. The set includes pairings with Lionel Richie, Billy Joel, John Mayer, Michael Buble, John Legend, Blake Shelton, Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban, as well as a virtual duet with the late Elvis Presley.  Neither Columbia Records nor Streisand's reps responded to requests from Billboard for more details about the project. 

Collecting Elvis

Volume 65 in the German "Elvis Sammlung" was released by De' Agostini and EPE. This set contains the magazine, memorabilia reproductions and a mini-poster for the single "Ain’t That Loving You Baby".
