After a successful Hollywood movie career, Elvis would return to the stage and live performances in 1969; however, it would not be the last time he appeared on the big screen. In the 1970s two documentaries followed Elvis through his live concert appearances. The first, Elvis: That’s the Way It Is in 1970, was followed by Elvis on Tour in 1972. The latter features footage from four different concerts during 1972 and also utilizes some vintage footage from Elvis’ early TV appearances. The on-stage scenes capture the power and grace of Elvis the performer, and this compilation of marvels helps the documentary to win the Golden Globe in 1972. Offered is a special radio programming record advertising Elvis on Tour. The “Open-End Radio Featurette / Featuring Elvis’ Leading Ladies” as stated on the green label comes with the typed DJ dialogue that would have accompanied the record. This script allowed the radio announcer to “interview” the leading ladies as their answers to his scripted questions were included in this programming record. The script provides the announcer specific dialogue and questions along with the answers the ladies will give on the record to ensure a seamless “interview.” This unique pairing is a rare survivor since many such promotions were likely destroyed after the promotional run of the documentary. The record measures 7 inches (17.8 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The record presents with little if any wear. NM condition.
