    Elvis Presley - Sealed Copy of Elvis' First Album (RCA LPM-1254, 1956). Elvis first single for RCA, "Heartbreak Hotel", was released in January, 1956 and his promising recording career at Sun Studios suddenly exploded into unprecedented success with RCA. The eponymous first album didn't include that classic hit; in fact, the highest-charting song on the album was "Blue Suede Shoes" which reached #20 on Billboard's charts as a cover of Carl Perkins' iconic #2 hit of the same year. But Elvis Presley reached #1 on Billboard's Top Pop Albums and stayed there for 10 weeks in the heady year of 1956. Finding a nice copy - both the record and album cover, that is - isn't easy. After all, the vast majority of copies were played countless times! We've never seen a sealed copy before, and it's a sight to behold! Still in the baggy plastic of the day and with the custom label, "Save 99¢ Regular Price $3.98 Discount Price $2.99". And it's a first pressing, with the lighter shading of the initial run. One of the coolest offerings of our auction!

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
