We will also be doing the first-ever standalone vinyl re-release of the earliest recordings by Elvis Presley. The 10" 78rpm facsimile record of "My Happiness" and "That's When Your Heartaches Begin" has elicited what's quite-possibly the most interest and excitement of any of our Record Store Day releases ever. We'd expect nothing less for the King.
From reproducing the typewritten labels (printed on the reverse of extra Prisonaires labels that happened to be laying around Sun Records in July 1953) to being packaged in a plain, nondescript, of-the-era sleeve, the utmost attention to detail has been paid in order to create an object so close to the historic original as to almost be indistinguishable from one other.
the original 10" disc containing Elvis' above-mentioned recordings were purchased for $300,000 by Jack White from a Graceland Auction in January, this record will take your breath away. At Third Man Records, safe behind bulletproof glass and augmented by an armed guard on duty, folks will get to see, in person, the record that is arguably the most important piece of rock and roll memorabilia in the world.
