    Elvis Presley "Love Me Tender" Ultra Rare Record Promo (RCA, 1956). "Love Me Tender" was Elvis fifth #1 single in his breakout year of 1956, and the eighth biggest hit of his storied recording career. It was also the title of his first movie, and this dazzling display pays homage to both movie and song. In late 1956, this paper record/movie promo that measures 9.75" x 13.5" was in stores across the country, but all but a few were eventually discarded. In fact, we've never seen a copy before, and there are probably only a handful in existence. It's in about Very Good condition and has been matted and framed along with a copy of the record and the rarest of the variant picture sleeves produced by RCA for the single. This one's the black & white version; most were colored pink or green. All have been attractively framed to an overall 27" x 27.5". THIRD PARTY SHIPPING REQUIRED.
