Very Rare Promo for the Victrola SPD-22. Cover is in VG+ shape. All intact with no writing. Does have some storage wear with its age.N 1960 when Elvis was discharged from the army nobody knew what all that time away from his fans would do to his career. RCA proposed to release an extended play album featuring some of Elvis' biggest hits from the 1950s. This project was called "Elvis by Request" in which Love Me was featured along with Hound Dog, Don't Be Cruel, and Jailhouse Rock.
Plans for the project were all drawn up and the extended play was actually issued a catalog number. At the time many record companies like RCA were trying to create a universal format (in this case 33 1/3) for all releases. After the amazing success of It's Now or Never (45 rpm), Elvis is Back, and G. Blues RCA decided to scrap the Love Me ep. One year later they would release the one and only Elvis ep to run at 33 1/3 speed which was called "Elvis by Request" in which Flaming Star was coupled with three other songs.
The Love Me ep was soon forgot (in fact the knowledge of its existence wouldn't come until the early 1990s). Commemorating this release 250 copies of it were pressed on blue vinyl, and 250 on black vinyl.
The blue is much harder to find than the black pressings. Get this awesome collectible that is sure to continue to rise in value for that Elvis collector in your life. The record carries the catalog number that RCA had issued for the record before the entire idea was scrapped. This copy is in mint condition. These are so limited that I urge you to get yours today before all of them fall into the hands of collectors.RARE ASSORTMENTS OF RARE ELVIS ITEMS , TIME TO THIN DOWN THE COLLECTION A LITTLE.
