In fact I hardly ever play it.

There was at least one bootleg that was released as a sound and time (longer) upgrade, like Elvis Rocks And The Girls Roll was the boot to get for a better sounding rehearsal 68. The BMG release of Million Dollar Quartet is pale in sound (noise reduction) to the Sun semi official release the year before.ColinB wrote:
The songs make fascinating listening, but were an anit-climax at best when they made their debut.

Flash, just scan the stuff, and I will add the captions, on a

Any interest in reading handwritten letters from Marion Keisker?
She replied to my letters, a couple of times, back in 87...
Maybe, together with some other Sun related rarities, this coming
weekend?! I'll also post photos of my pet racoon.

Maybe, it was a co production, between Richard & Vic...?
When I met up again, with Vic, in the early 80s, his spare bedroom,
housed several boxes with the GS album...
I heard Richard took his own life. Either in jail, or shortly after he
got out ... Any truth in that story?
Richard Minor, was a very nice guy. Dammit! Most of the Boot Yanks
were good dudes. They knew the risk, but their punishment was
way over the top!
Pat, thanks for your list! It helps, dating the US boots.
