This 10-inch RCA Victor Reference Recording acetate is single-sided, with a handwritten label in blue ink that reads “Surrender / Elvis Presley” and “L2-WW-0377-2.” One of 25 songs that Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman wrote for Elvis, “Surrender” hit number one in 1961 and was one of the all-time best selling singles. Elvis recorded the song in October of 1960. The B side of the hit single, “Lonely Man,” was slated to be on the Wild in the Country soundtrack, but there was never a soundtrack LP or EP released since Elvis was doing less singing in the movie. In fact, “Lonely Man” was cut from the film. The acetate is offered with a copy of the original commercial release of the “Surrender” 45 RPM record and sleeve with the “Lonely Man” track on the B side. The cover sleeve lists “‘Lonely Man’ from the forthcoming Jerry Wald Production 20th Century-Fox CinemaScope picture WILD IN THE COUNTRY.” The 45 retains a metal spindle adapter at its center and comes with a copy of a black-and-white photo of Elvis receiving a record award. The acetate has a diameter of approximately 10 inches (25.4 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The acetate is in good condition overall with some nicks to the edges and minor surface scuffs and scratches.
