  1. These 100 hundred tunes would make a great “5-CD mixed tape.” Terrific job with this. I’m a new subscriber here and I’m looking forward to scrolling through you earlier posts. I’m in the process of writing an Elvis-inspired novel and have a blog to go with it, where I’ll post excerpts etc. Launched yesterday on Elvis’s b-day!
