This 7" digipack 2-CD set also features stereo masters and "fly-on-the-wall" persona; recordings made during his Army time in Germany. The gatefold cover and the two labels were designed by WORLDWIDE ELVIS graphic designer of over 20 years - the great Jimmy Carpenter!. Someone else did the rest of the package. cover.
