The Elvis Presley Manufactured in Germany Discography 

Modified: June 21, 2013

This discography of records is of those that were only made and sold to US soldiers based in Europe and probably only in Germany. A unique characteristic of these records is the black label with the use of Nipper. The Nipper logo was not authorized for RCA Europe. The label also reads "MADE IN U.S.A". The trail-off area of the vinyl is stamped "Manufactured in Germany". A PX stamp should be found on the back of the cover.1

Additionally, there is a plastic grey triangle with the German text which reads: Bei dickem Zapfen Mittelstück herausdrücken. This can be translated as: With large center spindle push the centerpiece out. The pictured generic RCA cover may be found with many or all of 45s.23

While this discography will specifically list the releases with the explicit characteristics detailed above, there are additional titles that were distributed to the U.S. soldiers based in Germany that do not contain any reference to MADE IN U.S.A., however, both printed and pressed in Germany and possess the PX stamp.

This page may be used as a quick reference guide. Additional detail, as the detail arrives, will be provided on the individual pages throughout this site.

Special thanks to Urs Mosimann (from Switzerland), Christian (of France), and Roberto (from Italy) for their invaluable assistance. This page would not have been possible without them.
