This is a non-gatefold cover. It was available for a limited time through the RCA Record Club.2 The back of the cover is quickly identifiable as it replaces the statement "A SPECIAL MEMORIES OF ELVIS GREETING CARD" with a black border, however the cover slick is positioned slightly higher to display more crayon artwork and where Side A nearly touches the top. The front of the cover is more difficult to differentiate, however the cover slick is positioned slightly higher on the 1980 cover than the 1978 cover, where the crayons and the catalog number are higher. The red scribble next to the heart on the left side has more scribble.
