The offered 33 1/3 RPM LP was distributed by RCA Victor in the Chilean market in 1957, and features 11 of Elvis Presley's early hits from RCA and Sun Records. The white label with green printing lists the RCA catalog number “CML 3012,” the song titles in Spanish and English and the price (“Precio”) of $2500 Chilean pesos-a little less than $4 in 1957. Side A includes “Don't Be Cruel,” “Milkcow Blues Boogie,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Blue Moon of Kentucky,” and “My Baby Left Me.” Side B includes “Money Honey,” “Love Me Tender,” “I Forgot to Remember to Forget,” “Hound Dog,” and “Just Because.” It's an interesting mix of his earliest Sun recordings and his huge, international hits. Some RCA executive must have had a feel for what would sell best in South America. The LP is accompanied by a period “RCA Victor DISCOS” sleeve, though example's of this LP's original sleeve have surfaced in recent years, with a track listing and illustration of Elvis and his guitar. The record measures 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 



Condition: GD+ with moderate to heavy scuffing and a good number of scratches. Playable condition with some pops and hissing.
