Yes, the #1 music industry magazine, especially in the era we are researching.
Please, if you have another credible publication you can locate, scan and display here, do share!

I also had found several newspaper listings from 1958 and 1959 that advertise Elvis' Christmas Album. I have pictures of those pages and closeups as well as the Newspaper names.

In other words, the original photo had Elvis standing in front of blue curtains, but was subsequently superimposed on the snow covered hills for the covers of both LPM 1951 and EPA 4340.
If so, neither LPM 1951 nor EPA 4340 could have been released in 1958.

Also under the Popular section the discography only lists regular release LPs. In the following order and detail.
Also, a scan of RCA Victor Catalog - Records and Tapes (Current Until August 1958)
To demonstrate that there are no Christmas listings for that period, not even in the Christmas section of this book.

This would be nice to confirm -- right now, it seems up to Dec 1963 is possible.
