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.
