This is a Elvis debut in Chile. A July 1956 RCA single with The Laurie Sister on B side of the record:

The second chilean single from August 1956. Side B with Perry Como:

Image

Image


In September of 1956 the chilean RCA include this two separate singles on a one 78 R.PM.:

The next information is very important to understand who Presley debut in Chile.
My english are bad. If somebody can translate this can understand who start the chilean discography of Presley.



Los inicios de Presley en Chile:


Presley era un verdadero desconocido para comienzos de Junio de 1956. El primero en darle importancia fue un niño estudiante del Instituto Nacional quien en Junio de 1956 registro una emisión de los servicios informativos de ultramar en la que pasaron la canción “Heartbreak Hotel”.

El nombre del muchacho era Juan Calvo (más tarde gerente de Hispavox) y fue a varias estaciones de radio de Santiago, Chile insistiendo que tenía “La última novedad en Música”. Por su puesto que nadie le considero hasta que un Disck Jockey de radio Corporación transmitió su colaboración. La transmisión de “Heartbreak Hotel” causo tanto impacto que al momento de un segmento comercial no dejo de sonar el teléfono de la estación solicitando la repetición de la canción.

La grabación del pequeño también se difundió en otras estaciones logrando incluso ubicarse en los primeros lugares de sus rankings. La RCA chilena tuvo que tomar una decisión para finalmente editar a Elvis en el país.

En aquella época Don Roy era director artístico para RCA Víctor chilena, además músico de Jazz tenía un especial desinterés por la música de Presley. Para no correr riesgos RCA edito el primer single con “Hound Dog” de Presley en la cada A y The Laurie Sister en la B (Single RCA 94-0080 lanzado en Chile en Julio de 1956). Este fue el debut de Elvis en Chile.

Tras el éxito logrado con el primer single RCA Victor decidio lanzar un segundo single de Presley en Chile, pero nuevamente se negaron a editar un disco integro (ambos lados) con Elvis. Fue así que lanzaron el segundo single (RCA 94-0082) con Don’t Be Cruel” en la cara A y Perry Como en la B.

La estrategia no estuvo del todo bien. Perry Como era un artista muy popular en Chile y fue a través de este single que muchísimos padres sin quererlo llevaron a casa a Presley para que lo conocieran sus hijos.

Thank You Tony. The first 78 R.P.M. you show me is very rare. I have the same in white background color label with dark Green letters and graphics.

Image


Image


The side A of this beauty are “Hound Dong” (Perro sabueso).


This light Green lemmon background color is not common version. Very limited run and hard to find piece. Make at the end of moth of July of 1956, my version is later in August of 1956.

I have the second, made in Argentina. This Record are interesting because promoted as HIT FROM MOVIE “Al compás del Reloj” (Rock Around The Clock). But the record have the Presley version of this song, not the version of Bill Haley & His comets perfomace in this film. The movie has very popular on this years.

The chilean 78 R.P.M. have this versions:

Image


Label 1-2: from 1956 to 1957.
Label 3: from 1957.
Label 4: from 1957-1959.

Unfortunately I do not own this "baby"... But my friend has it. And it is Finnish 78rpm from 1957. Looking matrix numbers it looks to be pressed from German mother stampers. There are two funny mistakes on the label: 1. The song is wrote as Teddy Bear (Let Me Be Your). 2. Hal Wallis is wrote as Hal Walli and Walli is common Swedish name in Finland!

It is not known how many was exactly pressed, but probably only 100-200 copies.

Another mega-rare chilean EP.

Latest Presleyana VII gives value of $800 without a insert sleeve, which is valued as for $200. Yes, it is unclear why RCA in USA pressed this single for distribution overseas in 1974. The only time they did that... In USA the B side was Thinking About You, while this export it is Loving' Arms (mis-spelled slightly on the label). The USA release was on January 1975.

You wrote that "Manufactured in the U.S. for overseas distribution due to strikes in the U.K." Very interesting if this was the case! Where you got this information?

And it comes actually with plastic bag because paper sleeve was folded.

Re: Do you have a rare Elvis record? Show it to us, please!

Sat Feb 16, 2013 2:22 pm

My memory of the situation regarding the My Boy single was not so much a strike but wrapped up in the oil crisis. This affected other record releases at the time. The UK imported stock from the US but as far as Elvis is concerned My Boy/Lovin' arms was the only unique release. Of course this record is much more common in the UK compared to the USA.

There is a dealer here in Belgium that still sels that My boy/Loving arms record.
It's not in the original sleeve though...
Price is 50€.

Many thanks for all the info on this single. So, I wonder how many were pressed of this "My boy" export?
