Description

Title: For LP Fans Only (Translucent Gold)
Label: Friday Music
Product Type: VINYL LP

Limited 180gm audiophile translucent gold vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. This Elvis title is limited to 1, 000 copies. For LP Fans Only is the seventh album by Elvis Presley, issued by RCA Victor in February 1959. It is a selection of material from an August 1956 recording session at 20th Century FoxStage One, a September 1956 session at Radio Recorders in Hollywood, sessions on January 10 and 11 at the RCA Victor Studios in Nashville, two more at the RCA Victor Studios in New York, and multiple sessions at Sun Studio. The album reached number 19 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart. After Presley's induction into the United States Army on March 24, 1958, RCA Victor and Presley's manager, Colonel Tom Parker, were faced with the prospect of keeping his name before the public for two years with no possibility of live performances or movies, and few unissued marketable recordings in the vault. A recording session was arranged for two days in June, which yielded enough items for five more single sides, singles being the commercial focus for rock 'n' roll in the 1950s. Four of those tracks would be issued on 45s in 1958 and 1959 during his absence while doing military service. Presley, however, also did well in the albums market. Each of his previous six LPs charted no lower than number three, and RCA wished to continue to release albums by their hot commodity given his sales record. Much of Presley's material had been issued on single records, not on LP. For this album, RCA Victor collected nine tracks previously available in single form only, as well as "Poor Boy" from the Love Me Tender EP. Four of the tracks had been issued on Sun Records with limited release, and were very difficult to come by outside of the south. This album was the debut release of Elvis' first commercial recording "That's All Right (Mama)" in the United Kingdom. It was never issued as a single there during Presley's lifetime.
