The Listing Notice 12-5-684 details a correction for LPM-4088 Elvis. Jerry Reed is credited for Guitar Man on side 1, track 2 and again side 2, track 4. It should read Jerry Hubbard for these credits. Destroy label masters and use new label masters for future production. This is hand dated 12/5 on the bottom of the Listing Notice. Jerry Reed is Jerry Reed Hubbard, one in the same. Early orange label, rigid vinyl copies do have Jerry Reed credited for Guitar Man. There are orange label, rigid vinyl copies that have Jerry Hubbard for these credits.
