The Armed Forces Radio & Television Service was established in 1942 by the War Department to broadcast popular American radio and television to troops, government employees and families stationed overseas. It is still in operation today under the name American Forces Network, and over the years many stars have rallied to support U.S. efforts abroad. The offered oversized 16-inch LP with green and white label reads, “Armed Forces Radio & Television Service Station Library.” Side one includes Elvis Presley 1957 #1 Hit “Too Much,” and its B-side “Playing for Keeps,” which were released on January 4, 1957. On the same side are also two songs by the Jordanaires, “Baby, Won't You Please Come Home Sugaree” and “When the Saints Go Marching In.” The reverse side features an Elvis “tribute” song by The Bobolinks called “(I Want to Be) Elvis Presley's Sergeant,” as well as songs by Art Smith and Bobby Bain and his Go Group. The record measures 16 inches (40.65 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition: VG+ with one large scratch on the Elvis side and several other small defects. Playable condition.
