Quite a few of them.
Had them sent to me by a guy working at a Chicago radio station.
He also sent me a reel-to-reel tape of the "Aloha from Hawaii" show.
Plus several copies of the jukebox "Aloha from Hawaii" EP.

You see, records (and these days CD's) are distributed to radio stations before they are actually released to the public.
In most cases they are stamped "promo copy - not for sale".
It was great fun seeing John Brus, then fanclub president and living 2 streets away from where I lived then, who said "Elvis' next LP is ...... and will be released in 6 weeks time" upon which I would give him a C90 cassettetape saying "It has great songs, have a listen".
In case you wonder why I got these LP's sent to me, I sent the guy records by Dutch groups like Golden Earring, Earth & Fire, Q65, Outsiders, which he collected.
In the sixties and seventies it was a friendlier world.
