This may be considered the earliest outsourced MSI pressing of an Elvis Sun record. It predates Mystery Train by nearly a year which is well documented. This little gem may be a sleeper and is not documented anywhere else. Sun records were pressed at Plastic Product of Memphis, Sam Hodge's Paramount Record Manufacturing and occasionally outsourced M.S.I. Company in Philadelphia for overflow orders.4 As if Sun records are not desirable enough, the M.S.I. Co. pressings are rare in scarcity and desirability.5

Sleeve: Originally issued in generic brown.
