    Description

    Elvis Presley and Jaye P. Morgan Promo Double EP Sampler (RCA 992/993, 1956). One of the rarest Elvis promotional items, this EP package was made to convince retail stores to get into the record business. Elvis Presley and lounge singer Jaye P. Moran were paired in order to emphasize that Elvis' EP had sold 1,000 times better than Jaye P.'s had and that record and phonograph player sales were on the rise -- a not-so-subtle campaign to encourage retailers to place bigger orders with red-hot RCA. The cover is a double-gatefold pocket sleeve, with Elvis printed on the front and Jaye P. on the back. Promotional info appears on the inside. There are two variations concerning the contact information listed inside: one lists "Mr. L.F. Korands"; this copy lists "Mr. Walter H. Awe."
    The questionnaire inside has been neatly filled in (for the Weinstock, Lubin and Co., Sacramento, CA), using a blue ballpoint pen. The records are the black label "dog on top" label, and are the original records made especially for this set. In addition, this set has the ultra-rare 1.25" paper band which came wrapped around this set. It pictures the Presley and Morgan EPs, and reads "One of these albums sold..." (with check-off boxes for two, four, ten, twenty, hundred, and thousand) "...times better than the other... which one?" Comes with the original mailer envelope, which has been cut at the top to open; and is otherwise in Very Good condition.
    Condition: MT 9 (cover)/NM 8 (white band)/MT 9 (record).
