The offered, high grade example of Sun Records 210 (possibly never played) features Elvis Presley's songs “Good Rockin' Tonight” and “I Don't Care if the Sun Don't Shine.” The songs were recorded at the Memphis Recording Service studios sometime between September 12 and 16 1954, and the single was released on September 22, 1954. This record is a “Memphis Pressing,” as evidenced by the “delta” or “push” marks on the labels, three small indentations of the paper where the record stamper left indentations on the record itself when it was pressed at Plastic Products, Inc. where Sun had records made in Memphis. This detail usually indicates that the record is of an earlier vintage because Plastic Products didn't have a huge capacity. When Elvis' singles started selling big, Sam Phillips also had them pressed at other pressing plants in California and Pennsylvania. Those examples do not have these “delta” marks. Further indicating this is a very early pressing is the detail that the writer's name for “Good Rockin' Tonight” is listed as “Ray Brown,” when it was written by “Roy Brown.” This mistake was fixed very early in the run of these records. Also included is an original brown paper sleeve. The 45 measures 7 inches (17.8 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition: VG+ condition with only the most minor defects in the form of a few small scratches and a few very small scuffs, mostly in the dead wax area. Plays cleanly.
