    Elvis Presley Very Rare "Shoppin' Around" Acetate (Reference Recording, 1960). It's easy to understand why G. I. Blues was Elvis' most successful soundtrack after Blue Hawaii. It featured a nice combination of uptempo and slow romantic tunes. This song rivals the title cut as the best of the uptempos. The two-sided 10" 33 1/3 rpm acetate features an early take of the song, at 2:06 a bit faster than the version used on the soundtrack (2:22). The second side is an instrumental version - a real gem featuring a jazzy Les Paul-like performance by Scotty Moore, clocking in at 1:40. Condition: VG-EX 6.

    Please note this is possibly the only copy known to exist.
