This is a one-of-a-kind discovery, originally reported on February 4, 2013 on Soundz Good Records Facebook page. A record store had acquired an Elvis record collection from the daughter of a woman whom had passed. Of the records, Elvis' Gold Records, Vol. 3 was acquired by Robert Alaniz and is shown exactly how it was found. Although in shrink-wrap, the record not sealed, is a true first ("1S") Indianapolis pressing. This is unusual since most silver stereo labels were distributed in baggies, though not impossible. As Presleyana VII states, the folio was mailed to record shops as a give-a-way with LP purchase and to fan clubs and Elvis fans in a special promotional envelope. It now appears to have been packaged this way too, albeit in limited quantity. The general belief is that the sticker and method of packaging was not done through the normal RCA channels, however, likely packaged by local record distributors or at the retail level. It is also speculated that those whom had purchased this LP with sticker would have discarded the shrink-wrap to get to the record and folio, as is the case of the From Memphis To Vegas sticker. In April 2013, this complete package sold for a reported $1,500. The new owner carefully removed the folio to inspect the condition; and the folio revealed several pages with fingerprints indicating that it had been removed before. Because of the intentional position of the sticker on the shrink-wrap as it is angled with the frame on the cover, and slight indentation on the cover itself, the folio was originally packaged inside the cardboard cover as indicated on the sticker.3

Insert
An 8" x 10" full color picture folio not packaged with the record was given out with this record. This folio may or may not contain the giant size pin-up. There is an uncorrected error for the first instance of Elvis' Golden Records, Vol 3, featured with eight other records, pictured lower right corner next to It Happened at the World's Fiar; the catalog number is LPM/LSP-7117. The second instance where Elvis' Golden Records, Vol 3 is pictured at the foot of Elvis Presley in his golden suit offers three variations.

  • Identifies Elvis' Golden Records, Vol 3 with the correct catalog number of LPM/LSP-276516
