You don't see these coming up very often on Ebay.. though Ironically I've seen three in the last few weeks, one of which I purchased. Anyway, just thought I'd post up the link in case anyone is interested..

Makes me feel nostalgic seeing that LP again - what an awesome package that was, from the heyday of Elvis boots.

Made by people with a real passion for Elvis and his music, like the Madison boys these days.

Ah yes, this was issued in 1978, under the "Golden Archives" imprint.

The whole package -- with booklet -- remains superior to the 1980 vinyl release, part of the Elvis Aron Presley box set. "Golden Archives" also produced a fabulous three volume series called "The Rockin' Rebel." The late 1970s / early 1980s were fallow days as far as RCA releases, and discs like these were a godsend.

Supposedly, the fellow behind the GA LPs is a member here, so let me just say -- thanks for the music!

I have this superb LP and I endorse the above comments.

It may have been my imagination, but when the official version came out on the Silver Box EAP set, I didn't think it sounded as good as the Golden Archives 'original'.

I've got my mint copy signed by the Jord's, Scotty, DJ, Al Dvorin! I had the Bloch Arena all to myself and I had the LP up there, centre stage - whilst I was filming inside and out! I've been offered 600 dollars for it! I declined! :lol:

... Are you sure Doc...? Golden Archives was run by 2 of your fellow country men... Not for one minute have I felt one of them visits this site...? And I knew them well... Last time we had a reunion, was in Memphis, in 97.

... The name of the label has been used in Europe, but the Yanks had no involvement in this... neither did the people behind Bilko, or Baxter used GA for their titles....I think?

Well, I was hoping ... maybe they're too old for an internet MB?

If you ever see either fellow, do let 'em know all of those LPs will always be appreciated -- even if the "Live in '55" booklet from The Rockin' Rebel Vol. 2 really featured photos from Los Angeles, at the Shrine in June 1956.

Doc, if you check out Clinton Heylin's Bootleg Book for the names of the people behind the GA releases. One person involved was certain famous person in the Elvis Wolrd - let's just say his intials are PD.

Why be so coy?

If by PD you mean Paul Dowling - then just say it :D
