On the recording front, I've been really busy. I'm in the middle of recording a nonfiction book published by University Press called The Next Elvis by Barbara Barnes Sims. Barbara worked at Sun Records in Memphis in the late 1950s just after Elvis Presley had been discovered. Sam Phillips, himself, hired Barbara and she has wonderful stories that she shares in this book. Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, and, yes, Elvis Presley, all make appearances. I should be finished within the next few weeks. In the mean time, if you're interested in the print version, you can find it here.
Next up is a short book called Observations of a Transplanted Southern Belle by Laurie Byrne Smith. After that I have another University Press book called Spectacular Wickedness: Sex, Race, and Memory in Storyville, New Orleans by
