Uk / us alternative sleeves

Postby AndresVanKujik » Wed Mar 30, 2022 4:56 pm

Okay here are just a handful of original uk sleeves. We had several different ones to the us versions. We never had picture sleeve regularly on singles until the 1980s. Our release of “Elvis for everyone” had Summer Kisses repacked with Wild in the country as we had already had Summer Kisses released.

The "Harum Scarum" sleeve design was tastefully modified, but the "Spinout" one is just terrible. They went the easy way.

Definitely though our “wonderful world of Christmas” makes up for it and Rock and Roll no 2 is just cool

Yes, I agree that the "No. 2" front sleeve is just great, a real classic. The original LPM-1382 is hard to beat, though.

The slightly smaller one just above the Wonderful World of Xmas is “The King...” this was our version of “Mahalo from Elvis”. Also for those who care we also had two 10” LPs, one in 1957 called “The best of Elvis”, the last to be issued on HMV label. And “Loving You” was 10” the original release and various reissued up until 1969 when the orange label kicked in and it became 12”

The 12" UK re-issue of the Loving You album wasn't issued until 1977.
It was deleted for a number of years before then.

The "Elvis for everyone" LP in the U.K. not only had "Summer kisses, winter tears" replaced by "Wild in the country" but they used a so far unreleased version featuring (overdubbed?) maraccas.
