The offered record with five radio commercials was produced by United Artists to promote Elvis Presley's 1967 film Clambake. The commercials come in three lengths, 60, 30 and 10 seconds, and the first ad asks and answers “What has $20 million, a guitar and Florida's most beautiful girls? Elvis, baby! Elvis Presley in Clambake!” These “Radio Spot” LPs are very tough to find, as most of them were not archived by radio stations, but simply destroyed after the film's run. The label has some pencil notations around ad 3, and the call letters “WGRD,” which was a top 40 station in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the time of the film's release. The record's reverse is blank. The record measures 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 



Condition: VG with moderate areas of scuffing and some small scratches, none of which affect playback in a major way. Playable condition.
1967 “United Artists” <em>Clambake Radio Spot Announcements</em> 33 1/3 RPM 10-Inch LP with Five Radio Commercials for Elvis Presleys Film
