RCA promoted its biggest star as much as the Colonel did, with the offered two reel-to-reel tapes capturing RCA radio ads that advertise Elvis’ music including the album Moody Blue and the single “Way Down.” The reel-to-reel for Moody Blue has the spokesman touting “It’s Elvis. Elvis and his latest RCA album ‘Moody Blue,’ a fabulous collection of new hits including ‘Way Down.’” Elvis’ velvet voice can be heard singing throughout the 67-second radio spot. The two reel-to-reel tapes are contained in their original boxes with RCA Recording Studio labels and typed titles: “Elvis Presley - GNLS-0052” with the side of the box stating “RCA - Elvis 7/77” in black ink and “Elvis Presley - GNLS-0094” with the “4” and “‘My Way’” handwritten. Each box measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4 by 3/4 inches (13.33 x 13.33 x 1.90 cm) with each reel measuring 5 inches (12.7 cm) in diameter and the pair is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



Each reel to reel is in excellent condition and boxes are in excellent condition overall with "My Way" box containing a slight indentation to the right front edge.
