Offered are nine acetates with songs from Elvis Presley’s film Girls! Girls! Girls! The musical film, released in 1962, was directed by Norman Taurog and co-starred Stella Stevens and Laurel Goodwin. Elvis played Ross Carpenter, a sailor who tries to buy the boat on which he works when the owner retires. In typical Elvis musical movie fashion, he finds himself caught in a love triangle with his lovely co-stars. Acetates from recording sessions were made in very small numbers, by design, and to see a group of this size from one film soundtrack recording effort is extremely rare. The songs present on the offered acetates were recorded in the following order during sessions on March 26-28, 1962, at Radio Recorders Studio B in Hollywood, California: “I Don’t Want To” (record version); “We’re Comin’ in Loaded” (record version); “Thanks to the Rolling Sea” (film version); “Thanks to the Rolling Sea” (record version); “The Walls Have Ears” (record version); “Song of the Shrimp”; “A Boy Like Me and a Girl Like You”; “Mama” (OUTTAKE); “Girls! Girls! Girls!” (“Chinese” version from film finale); “Earth Boy” (record version); “Earth Boy” (film version); “Girls” (both versions from the film’s finale); “I Don’t Wanna Be Tied” (record version); “Plantation Rock” (OUTTAKE complete version); and “Plantation Rock” (instrumental version). The records measure 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The records present in playable condition with minimal distresses, with just a few scuffs. VG+, with some lesser.
