From Memphis to Vegas / From Vegas to Memphis was both Elvis’ first live album and his first official double album, and was released by RCA on October 14, 1969. The two-disc set contained songs that were recorded live August 24-26, 1969 at the International Hotel in Vegas and recorded in the American Sound Studio in Memphis in January and February 1969. This double album, tying in Elvis’ successful return to the stage in Vegas and arguably some of his best studio material, reached number 12 on the Billboard charts and was certified Gold by the RIAA on December 12, 1969. Offered is a wonderfully graphic and colorful record store promotional display for this album’s release. The heavy cardboard, bi-fold display may be blank on the back, but the colorful front certainly catches the eye. This clever promotional piece was designed to sit on a countertop in a record store and with the bold, bright light-effect surrounding the visual image of the album cover calling the viewer with the temptation “Elvis for you in a double deluxe album,” it no doubt did its job with successfully selling this double-album set. This fantastic cardboard counter display measures 22 1/2 by 42 inches (57.15 x 106.68 cm), is stored folded in half, and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The display presents with only minor edge wear, especially near the factory center fold, and some mild toning on the edges. Excellent to Mint condition.
Incredible 1969 Record Store Display for Elvis Presley’s LP <em>From Memphis to Vegas / From Vegas to Memphis</em>
