In January we offered you a vinyl single and it was very popular. However on finding out they had changed all the artwork and it was no longer the nice reproduction as promoted we backed out. Now our stand has proven itself and we can now offer you once again this item, as it should be ... Like A Baby / Make Me Know It : 7 Inch 45 RPM Promo Vinyl Single. This is the Elvis single that never was released in the 60s in the same spirit as FTDs release, Elvis Sings Guitar Man.
A second song from Lisa Marie Presleys soon to be released album, Storm And Grace, has been released online. The song, Over Me is again another strong performance and we look forward to the album!
