HOW DID THIS DISC GET PAST ME?

How did I miss this 2017 Jerry Lee Lewis release…super 3 sided pressing of his 1989 appearance on Austin City Limits.

THE FIRST REIMAGINED ELVIS TRACK THAT WORKS

I’m pretty worn out on the idea of putting new backgrounds with old vocals, so when I read about the “new’ Elvis album “Where No One Stands Alone” using that concept, it didn’t move me much.
