Moody blue


The single Moody blue / Make te world go away with audience recordings was released in 1980 on Geneva records.
Moody blue = 21-02-77

YES, what a nice item in my Bootleg-Collection!
The sleeve is like Newsprint-paper back at the time, it was such a favorite 45rpm for the collector, ;) Matt

Blue Hawaii + King Creole - acetates

This is another one I loved so much. The studio outtakes from Blue Hawaii were so cool to hear and I loved the King Creole stuff almost as much. I played this a lot back then. Years later a collector pal from NY told me that the label was not just some made up thing but a real one that made records for anyone. You can see their name on the cover Lee Myles Assoc., NY. The cover style on the Elvis record was also used for a bunch of regular people's records, this blew my mind. Take a look at these.

Here is a couple of bootleg entries from one of Paul Lichters books.

What do you make of this? I was offered these in 1979 or 1980 for the cool sum of $5000 each.

a 1957 live version of "trying to get to you"? "Uncle pen" on two different records.
"The 12th of never" a good 20 years before it became widely known and widely distributed.
"lonely teardrops"?

I assume 'stage fright' & venue are Elvis speaking.
any thoughts.

From what I know of Mr Lichter, he didn't always deliver what he offered.

And that's why I didn't buy those records from him.
He does have a reputation. and not a good one.

At $5000 a pop, I'll bet you're glad you didn't.

I did like his book The Boy Who Dared To Rock, but I gave it away eventually. I can't remember what was in it now.

That is the book I took that scan from.

It's good you kept that amount in your pocket; it's known Paul Lichter always is fraudulent.
Once he stated he was even with Elvis on holidays in Hawaii (1977).

I just hate when they do that!

Leave the original as it is is my motto.
