This is an interesting label as it does not resemble any other Hollywood pressing labels. The label is more characteristic of a Rockaway or Indianapolis pressing label, however, with a very distinctive difference in the size of the 45 RPM font on the right side. Elvis records preceding this and those released after this release all share the distinctive characteristic of 45 R.P.M. and New Orthophonic High Fidelity on right side.
