The offered 78 RPM acetate contains the songs “Love Me Tender” and “We're Gonna Move” ”from Elvis Presley's first film Love Me Tender. The songs were recorded on August 24, 1956, at 20th Century Fox Stage 1 in Hollywood, California, in the same session when Elvis recorded “Poor Boy.” The 20th Century Fox label on side one indicates the song title as “There's a Leak in This Old Building” (this lyric from the song may have been the working title before some bright producer figured out that “We're Gonna Move” fit a little better with the singer.). The label on side two indicates the song as “Love Me Tender,” the artist as “Presley, Guitar, Male Voices” and the film name as “Reno Brothers.” The film's title wasn't changed until “Love Me Tender” was becoming a huge hit. The acetate presents in extremely high-grade condition. The disc measures 12 inches (30.48 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 

Condition: VG+ with few defects-some minor scratches and scuffs. Very, very clean. Playable condition.
