These sessions were brought about to record a new sound to old Elvis recordings.

The result was a complete album entitled Guitar Man in 1981. A follow up CD was released by the collectors label Follow That Dream in 2000 entitled Too Much Monkey Business, which contained additional tracks not released on the original LP.

Thanks to Juan Luis Gonzalez Brugal for sharing the unreleased version of 'For Ol' Times Sake', from his own private collection.
