Offered is a rarely seen RCA Victor Promotion Record that would have been sent to radio stations in late 1955 or during 1956. The record, titled EZ Country Programming No. 2, was RCA’s attempt to promote eleven of its country artists in one fell swoop, with the intention that stations could simply play the whole record to create 30-odd minutes of programming. The 33 1/3 RPM record features two singles from RCA’s most recent acquisition at the time, Elvis Presley: “Mystery Train” and “I Forgot to Remember to Forget.” Both of these singles were released by December 1955, immediately following the November 1955 deal that moved Presley from Sun Records to RCA. Other artists represented on the record include Eddie Arnold, Chet Atkins, Hank Snow and Anita Carter. The record measures 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 



The record presents in playable condition with only a few surface scuffs and scratches. Excellent condition.
1955-56 RCA Victor Promotion Record <em>EZ Country Programming No. 2</em> Featuring Elvis Presley’s “Mystery Train” and “I Forgot to Remember to Forget”
