August 14 - Elvis: From Italy to Australia

The Follow That Dream Collector's label will release a limited edition Gary Jackson's book, 'Bruce Jackson: On the Road with Elvis' in the fall with a set of 3 CDs, including an accompanying audio documentary, plus a soundboard recording of the Sioux Falls concert on October 18, 1976, and - for the first time ever - a soundboard from Bruce's own collection from the concert in Atlanta on December 30, 1976.

Bruce was Elvis' sound engineer at the concerts from '71 to '77, and was even awarded a gold TCB by Elvis. He died in Death Valley in a tragic plane crash in 2011.

This beautiful book was released by Gary earlier in 2018 but was too expensive for many fans due to the high cost and shipping from Australia.
