45EP - Elvis Sings Christmas Songs - Santa Bring My Baby Back To Me / Blue Christmas. B/w Santa Claus is Back in Town / I'll Be Home For Christmas. Cover is clean - no writing, no splits, no tears. Labels are clean and original in every way except as noted below.
Now here's where it gets interesting: The songs listed above are as they appear on the hard cover. Looking at the labels: Side 1 label lists titles as Santa Bring My Baby Back (To Me) / Here Comes Santa Claus (and it plays these two) (see photo 1); Side 2 label list titles as Blue Christmas / White Christmas and plays Santa Claus is Back in Town / I'll Be Home for Christmas. Stamped matrix numbers on the disk and the labels match (H2PH-6528/6529) and correspond with Presleyana VIII entries.
This item is not only not listed anywhere (Including Presleyana VIII), but I have personally spoken with both Jerry Osborne and Robert Alaniz (his Associate Editor and well know Elvis Guru from Soundz Good Records) and neither has ever heard of this multi-error, or seen it listed anywhere. At this time all three of us believe it to be a unique Elvis item, never before seen. This is my personal colle. Ction and not something on consignment. All items are guaranteed original for the issue, unless specifically stated otherwise.
Our wonderful economic condition has caused me to downsize my lifestyle, and records can no longer be a part of that. My loss is your gain. All items will be pictured and described to the best of my ability. All items will be well packed.All items will have sleeves and plastic jackets. Thanks and good luck to all. Due to some disagreements in stated condition, I find it necessary to define, specifically what my condition rankings are. I always try to be very fair with everyone, and those of you that have dealt with me in the past know this to be true. Will never be used except in the case of a still sealed LP. Used when the disk's playing surfaces appear to be without any surface marks and the original gloss is apparent. Used when the disk's playing surfaces have only a couple of very light surface marks that do not in any way affect sound during playback, or detract from the overall appearance of the disk's gloss. Used when the disk's playing surfaces have very few light surface marks that may cause very minimal bac kground noise during playback. Same as VG+ but with more surface marks, but not enough to greatly lower the overall appearance or sound. Used when there are a few more surface marks that are heavier than VG+, but still do not cause loud pops or appreciable background noise. Also used when the overall appearance of the vinyl is affected by the marks, reducing the gloss. Vinyl has several to many surface marks that cause noticeable background noise (crackling) throughout playback, but are not so severe as to cause skipping or loud popping; Items graded lower than VG will not be listed by me unless the item itself is so rare as to be desirable simply for the label or the filling of a hole until a better copy comes along. Please contact me through E-Bay's message system with any questions or beefs of any kind. Again - this is MY ranking and not that of any magazine, dealer or website. Thanks, as always for your continued support - - Rube.
