Phil, you and i were there at the same time in 2000! We perhaps crossed paths at some point on Beale?

Those things you found at the giftshop was included in an US issue of Class Of 55. Mine is a double vinyl where one disc contains the interviews. The booklet is also attached.

About the show, Kerrie is in charge so maybe she'll wait??

About the club, on Per's picture you can see that all the houses look different from the outside but are connected inside, so that makes the restaurant 138 Beale, inbetween 140 Beale and the Band Box 142 Beale str. so the handprints are in front of the Band Box.

To Phil, don't drink to much while your visiting Memphis, you'll never know who you're gonne meet. :idea: :lol:

Yes the Class of 55 extras I got were from the US cassette release,mail order like the 2lp set,wish they would issue a deluxe package of this on cd/dvd along with any out takes, the interviews and the Dick Clark tv show about it, there's one for Time Life

It's notable how generous Carl is towards JLL in his comments in the booklet, different to the rather bitter chip on the shoulder stuff in his official biography, or was that down to the Rolling Stone author who were really anti JLL after the Shawn issue came out

Or maybe it's to do with Jerry's comments on Carl in his biography...

I'm sorry to hear that, it's often happens that you'll hear of someone passing away just after their retirment, too sad after a live full of work.
