While Elvis’ Sun 45s are highly collectible, the Sun 78s are even more rare and desirable because the majority produced were damaged beyond repair not long after they were made. The reason for the damage is uncertain, but the fact remains that the scarcity of the 78s has increased their collectible value. Offered is a 78 RPM of the 1955 Sun 217 “Baby Let’s Play House/I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone,” one of Elvis’ first five singles on the Sun label. In February 1955, Elvis recorded the Arthur Gunter song “Baby Let’s Play House” which was the B side for the release of Sun Records 217. In March of 1955, Elvis recorded “I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone,” an interesting song written by Stan Kesler and William Taylor that only Elvis’ velvety voice could turn into an amusing and fun tune. Sun 217 was released on April 10, 1955. One additional Sun Records single was released on August 6 before that November 1955 when RCA purchased Elvis’ contract from Sun Records, making the original Elvis Sun records highly collectible. This example of the early Sun release measures 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and it is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The record presents with moderate to heavy scuffing and scratches but is in playable condition. VG condition.
Elvis Presley 78 RPM Single “Baby Let’s Play House/I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone”
