I don't collect CD's in the same way most collectors do with vinyl. As most collectors will tell you, CD's do not have the same appeal.

Had this 45 since 1986 Just noticed something unusual about the B side. It also occurs with follow that dream copy .......... No wonder RCA re-issued all 4 of them plus 10 others on their 'Special Products' label 1083 is still unconfirmed. So far I'm missing 1079 Black.Oh BTW these are Canadian pressings.

Every price guide has this at about $7.00. The reason is clear, as it was released at about the time the entire Elvis catalog was released in mass numbers to support the demand for Elvis. As most collectors focus their attention to the original releases, many believe that the later releases are simply too common to collect. However, I challenge you to find another copy. I am sure they are out there. It took me over a year to find this one, and I looked almost daily. I even considered this not to exist and actually documented that on the website. I was stunned to have found this copy. Without further ado..

Many thanks for the info, Mr. Dick. I assumed it was Sth African as that is what the seller (not Ebay) had it listed as and it has 'Teal Record Company' on the reverse of the sleeve. Plus the fact it doesn't have 'demonstration' or 'promotional' anywhere on the packaging or lable did have me wondering. I have a "King Creole" with the same label as well.

You have a fine piece. However, the one you have is AFL1-4671 not LSP-4671. Though the AFL1-4671 is uncommon.

Dang!...................... Close. Oh well!

I made the same mistake with a copy of the Jailhouse Rock album.
While doing some research for Bootleg Elvis on Asian vinyl, I found out that these white label
albums all come from Zimbabwe. No doubt about that.

Sorry, it was never released.... let my imagination get carried away (Thought I was Paul Lichter). It's sort of a 'What If'.



How did you convert it to blue vinyl and have you manipulated any other items you have posted here?


STILL waiting for someone to respond to the G.I Blues Slick......... It's been almost 2 months.

That Italy one dosen't look like a big seller.......Makes you wonder who chooses what songs go onto a 45. Interesting coupling tho.

Yes, the coupling is most odd, but I'm assuming they also had the regular "Return to sender" / "Where do you come from" single release in Italy, so maybe someone thought these 2 tracks would make a good follow up? And, don't forget, in 1984, someone at RCA UK thought "The last farewell" would make a good A side! :smt003
