After 3 years of planning to do an episode on it, Justin & Gurdip deep dive the posthumous sessions that gave Elvis his first "remix" album, with overdubbed instrumentation. Not only is the "Guitar Man" album from 1981 covered, but so too is the "Too Much Monkey Business" Follow That Dream release, and newly discovered alternate and unfinished recordings from the sessions that were rediscovered by an Elvis fan in 2018.

Justin's back this week and the first thing the guys tackle is a listener challenge to compile a solid album from the 3 albums and 8 singles released by Elvis in the US in 1966 - a year usually considered bereft of quality content in his catalogue. Which album will win out? Justin's "Elvis: Long Lonely Highway" or Gurdip's "Elvis Sings Come What May"? It's up to listeners to decide! Then, for Song of the Week, Gurdip picks the lesser-known fifties rocker "One-Sided Love Affair" while Justin cops out and picks the title track from his own aforementioned 1966 fantasy album... but points out that...
