    Description

    Elvis Presley King Creole Sealed LP (RCA 1884, 1958). Elvis' sixth LP came out when the King was in the ARMY. It may have been his fifth #1 selling album had he not been overseas, but it still went to #2 in late 1958. So rare to find this early Elvis LP still sealed! When the record came out, it wasn't sealed at the factory, but instead sent directly to record stores along with a hard-to-find bonus photo of Elvis in ARMY uniform, ostensibly to be included with the album when sold. Essentially, it was up to the record stores to market the photo as they saw fit, and many were sold separately from the album. Fortunately, Elvis fan, the bonus photo was sealed along with the record in this case. The vintage "baggy" of the day - in contrast to shrinkwrap sealing that came later - attests to a sealed copy of record and photo for more than 50 years. Extremely rare! You may not find another sealed copy of this one, with or without the bonus photo!
