This pair of 78 RPM “RCA Reference Recording” acetates contain the A and B sides for the Elvis Presley's first post-military service single, “Stuck on You” and “Fame and Fortune.” The songs were recorded at RCA's legendary Studio B in Nashville on March 21, 1960, and released just days later, on March 23, 1960. RCA was obviously incredibly anxious to get some music out as fast as possible after Elvis' two year stint in the Army. “Stuck on You” became Elvis' first number one hit of the 1960s and his thirteenth overall. The offered acetates' labels include the song title, “E. Presley,” and each songs eventual matrix number that would appear on the commercially produced 45s. On the reverse of the “Stuck on You” example is a recording of “Fame and Fortune,” but the label is marked “N.G.” The “Fame and Fortune” example's label is marked OK. This could be a reference to a recording malfunction on the first attempt. The records measure 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition: Good Plus with moderate scuffing and a few scratches. Playable condition.
