The offered RCA Nashville double sided, 33 1/3 RPM acetate contains eight songs from Elvis Presley’s June 1970 recording sessions in RCA Nashville’s legendary Studio B. Most of the songs would appear in the concert film Elvis: That’s the Way it Is, and six of the eight are the studio versions that would appear on the soundtrack album for the film, released on November 11, 1970. The offered versions of “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” and “Patch it Up” were released as the album’s single and b-side, respectively, in October 1970. The songs were recorded and overdubbed during a number of legendary, marathon sessions in June 1970, with some overdub sessions occurring in July, as well. The handwritten label lists the songs on the first side as “Patch it Up,” “Cabin on the Hill,” “Cindy Cindy,” and “Stranger in the Crowd.” The second side lists “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me,” “Just Pretend,” “Twenty Days and Twenty Nights,” and “Bridge Over Troubled Waters.” The 1970 MGM documentary film chronicled Elvis’ on-stage performances during his summer festival at the International Hotel in Las Vegas in August that year. This movie was Elvis’ first non-acting role since the beginning of his film career in 1956 and reveals the musician’s renewed focus on his live performances. The MGM crew, directed by Denis Sanders, filmed Elvis’ performances on August 10, 11, 12 and 13, 1970. The acetate is in its original Transco paper sleeve with additional sleeve and measures 11 7/8 inches (11.16 cm) in diameter. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The acetate presents in playable condition with moderate scratching and scuffing. Excellent condtiion.
