Author, "Talking Elvis" co-host and past TCBCast guest Vince Wright returns to the show to discuss his latest effort, "8MM Elvis," with Gurdip. "8MM Elvis" is a book cataloguing and documenting the long-forgotten and neglected history of home 8MM releases of Elvis footage in the pre-VHS era.
After catching up on what Vince has been up to in the last couple years since his previous TCBCast appearance, Gurdip follows Vince through his history as a longtime collector and enthusiast of this ephemeral viewing format of days gone by. From rare, trimmed-down edits of Elvis's feature films to bootleg copies of 68 Comeback Special outtakes, it's a fascinating discussion - plus, Gurdip challenges Vince to a bit of Elvis trivia!
Then, you get to hear a sampling of "Songs of the Month" from our Patreon-exclusive spinoff TCBCast Now, as Gurdip and David "Ghosty" Wills of "We Say Yeah: A Cliff Richard Fan Podcast" cover the histories behind two songs from Elvis' peers: Jackie Wilson's 1958 recording "Right Now" and Sir Cliff's 1962 take on Jerry Lee Lewis' "It'll Be Me," respectively.
