The Armed Forces Radio & Television Service was established in 1942 by the War Department to broadcast popular American radio and television to troops, government employees and families stationed overseas. It is still in operation today under the name American Forces Network, and over the years many stars have rallied to support U.S. efforts abroad. The offered oversized 16-inch LP with green and white label reads, “Armed Forces Radio & Television Service Station Library.” Side one includes Elvis Presley's 1957 single “Teddy Bear” and its B-side “Loving You,” which were released together on June11, 1957. On the same side are also all four songs from Elvis' April 1957 EP Peace in the Valley: "(There'll Be) Peace in the Valley (For Me,)" “It Is No Secret (What God Can Do),” “I Believe,” and “Take My Hand, Precious Lord.”. The date “6-27-57” is etched into the dead wax along with the matrix number information. The reverse includes four tracks from Buddy Bregman and his Orchestra; we're not sure how much use that side got. The record measures 16 inches (40.65 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition: VG+ with minor scuffs and scratches. Playable condition.
1957 “Armed Forces Radio & Television Service” 33 1/3 RPM 16-Inch LP Featuring Elvis Presleys Songs “Teddy Bear” and “Loving You” Plus the Entire <em>Peace in the Valley</em> EPs Four Songs
