The FTD release of 'Cafe Europa Sessions : G.I. Blues Volume 2' is a 2 CD Set in the Classic Album series and is second volume of 'G.I. Blues' material following the G.I. Blues classic album release. As always in a 7" inch digi pack format with booklet. With this volume we get the 'In-and-Outtakes' section in order to summarize all the G.I. BLUES recordings. Sounding better than ANYTHING that's' gone before, the original masters including studio banter have been NEWLY REMIXED from the original multi tracks.

A lot of effort (and money) has gone into making these the best sounding recordings.
