Felton Jarvis - 40th Anniversary' Import CD

August 09, 2021 | Music

Felton Jarvis worked for RCA Victor and became involved in Elvis' studio sessions from 1966 onwards. In the late 1950s he also recorded songs (including 'Don't Knock Elvis'!) but Jarvis is better known as a record producer.
Unfortunately health problems caused his early death in 1981 aged only 46.
In 1980, three years after Elvis' death, Jarvis was the first producer to have the idea "refreshing" Elvis' recordings. By remaking the musicians' background, added to Elvis' original vocal track, a new version could be created. The result of this was the 1981 album "Guitar Man". This idea has been repeated multiple times since!
The Felton-Import label announces the release of the double CD "Felton Jarvis - 40th Anniversary" which includes songs by Felton Jarvis, Mac davis, James Burton, 18 tracks by Elvis, songs Jarvis helped create, interviews plus a 12-page booklet.
