Elvis’ first single to be released in 1967 was “Indescribably Blue,” recorded the prior year in Nashville and backed on side B by “Fools Fall in Love.” The single was released by RCA on January 10 with “Indescribably Blue” reaching to 33 on the Billboard charts. While the song, Elvis’ choice, may not have had the most commercial appeal, it was one of his more powerful and technically superior ballads. This single release also featured the Jordanaires and the Imperial Quartet. With a release date so close to Elvis’ 32nd birthday on January 8, RCA used this special occasion to promote the upcoming single release; offered is an RCA Victor advertising poster that touts “From ELVIS and RCA Victor on Elvis’ Birthday, January 8, 1967 / A special new single.” The color poster features both the front and back of the picture sleeve against a white background. Elvis spent his birthday in 1967 at Graceland focusing on his horses and being paid a visit from Gordon Stoker of the Jordanaires. This unusual and timely poster measures 19 by 10 inches (48.26 x 25.4 cm), is stored folded and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster exhibits several tape stains, small paper loss at the corner, some wrinkling and creases. Excellent condition.
