Documents posted below are also available on Keith Flynn's website:http://www.keithflynn.com/recording-ses ... 11027.htmlLetter dated November 14, 1961 from RCA vice president Bill Bullock to Colonel Tom Parker.
Bill Bullock suggested a ‘double feature LP’:
“Harry Jenkins and the fellows are working on their 1962 plans and would like to know what our tentative LP plans are so as to provide for special treatment on Presley product. As a suggestion only, let me give you the following for what it is worth. Make a double feature LP along the lines of the enclosed sketch. You can tell right off that I am not an art director!”
Both Follow That Dream and Kid Galahad were scheduled to be released within a few months of one another, thus Bill’s suggestion to make this double feature LP. The letter ends with Bill’s request to “Kick this around and let me know what you think.”
History tells us that the Colonel was not behind this idea, since a double album was not made, but two extended play records instead, one for each film. The two original concept sketches for a double feature LP Kid Galahad / Follow That Dream:

“Not for sale” record with “King of the Whole Wide World”/”Home is Where the Heart Is”. The original white sleeve reads, in part: “From his new movie ‘Kid Galahad’ / These soundtrack recordings plus 4 others available only in Elvis’ new 45 E.P. - Kid Galahad (EPA-4371)”.
