In the new FTD "Love me tender" reissue, it says about "let me" that a Philippenes promo 78 being 'probably the only Elvis single to contain the latter song' (let me). I have a South African 78 I have in my collection, so that information is wrong! For a bit of fun, does anyone want to guess what the A side of this release? I have tried to post a picture of it here but it keeps saying error!?

Nope. Have another go. It's not from "Love me tender" at all!

[quote="RyanD"]I know very little about vinyl, so maybe someone here can help me out. I recently acquired several original Elvis records via a family friend. I do not know if any of these are rare at all or not. Looking for some input :)

This is not USA pressing, which have black label. Maybe Canadian release? And "Moody"... Mispelling thing or what?

Here's the lyrics

"Moody"

Well, it's hard to be a gambler bettin' on the number
That changes ev'ry time
When you think you're gonna win, you think she's givin' in
A stranger's all you find

Yeah, that's hard to figure out, what she's all about
But she's a woman through and through
She's a complicated lady
So color my baby moody

Oh, moody
Tell me, am I gettin' through
I keep hangin' on
Trying to learn the song but I never do

Oh, moody
Tell me, who I'm talkin' to
You're like the night and day
And it's hard to say which one is you

Well, when Monday comes she's Tuesday
When Tuesday comes she's Wednesday, into another day again
Her personality unwinds just like a ball of twine
On a spool that never ends

Just when I think I know her well, her emotions reveal
She's not the person that I thought I knew
But she's a complicated lady
So color my baby moody

Oh, moody
Tell me, am I gettin' through
I keep hangin' on
Trying to learn the song but I never do

Hey, moody
Tell me, who I'm talkin' to
You're like the night and day
And it's hard to say which one is you
Oh, my baby, my moody

Oh, moody
Tell me, who I'm talkin' to
You're like the night and day
And it's hard to say which one is you

Yeah, moody

Below is a postcard from, presumably Poland or Russia. It has 1962 on the back. This has a hole in the middle as it also plays as a record! The song is "Return to sender", appropriately!

It is from Russia but was sold in Poland as an import. The stamp is Polish.

Just bought this album from Peru. It has a weird back sleeve.

Thanks for the heads up. I wonder if there are others like this from this time?

If it is a USA pressing, it is somewhat rare, if its Canadian or otherwise, it is not. Back in the day, a black vinyl 1st pressing in the USA of Moody Blue was considred rare and quite valuable, because the blue vinyl one was the common pressing. These days, I dont think the value is quite the same on those black USA vinyls.

Yes, it's a cheaply produced cover, but this record was made to give away to record shops to play in store.
