I've seen it, but I have no earthly idea where. I know I don't have it, but I can clearly recall holding it.

I remember seeing adverts in Elvis monthliy for this & I think at least 3 other Australian EPs sometime around the early eightys, mind you of the top of my head I can't for the life of me remember the other titles except that there may have been one from the '68 Comeback.

If I get a chace I'll check it out & let you know what I find. 8)

It was released in Australia in 1982, along with those other ones listed. Tracks were; "Britches", "A cane and a high starched collar", "Danny" and "Beyond the reef". In the UK, they were about £2.50 each, so the price that guy is asking is way over the top! I would value it at no more than £7 - £10.

I got this when it first came out and I've never played it, this and the conversations ep and Elvis' Girls Vol1 EP and a couple more all just locked away in mint condition. The Australian EP's were very collectable and there were many of them! I might dig 'em out and have a look!

Well darn it, that is one of the small number of weird issues that I do have. I know I bought it brand new in mid 1983, just because it was an imported RCA issue which copied a bootleg (cover) (which I had).

I don't think it's worth much. I wouldn't have bought it except for the novelty of the cover.

I recall seeing that in a U.S. Elvis rag in the '80s.

But I agree with Ohnono that at this point it's not essential - save for the obsessive vinyl completists among us! :wink:

I say that because the tracks are by now long available elsewhere. Or least I think so.

Even on its release, there was nothing unreleased on it. 3 tracks from the Legendary Performer series and one from the Silver box. Perhaps those were unreleased in Australia at the time; I don't care.

Ouch. :oops:

Ouch? No ouch. I'm railing against the false statement on that ebay page.

I just appreciate rare blunt talk about either exaggerated claims by either sellers small or large (such as BMG.)
