    Description

    Elvis Presley/Jaye P. Morgan Promo Double EP Sampler (RCA 992/993, 1956). One of the rarest Elvis promotional items, this EP package was made to get retail stores into the record business. The idea of Elvis Presley and lounge singer Jaye P. Morgan being together was to emphasize the fact that Elvis' EP had sold 1,000 times better than had Jaye's, that record and phonograph player sales were on the rise, so retail stores should be aware of the increase and spend more money with 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, using a blue ball-point 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?" Nothing against Jaye P., who was a nice singer and extremely easy on the eyes, but the year was 1956, and the King had ascended! Comes with the original mailer envelope.
    Condition: NM 8 (cover)/NM 8 (white band)/EX 7 (white mailer envelope)/NM 8 (record).
