In his iconic role in Girl Happy, Elvis plays a band member hired by a Chicago mobster and club owner to watch over his daughter on spring break in Florida. The songs for the soundtrack album that was released by RCA in March 1965 were recorded in June 1964, with the title track recorded on June 10 and 11th at the Radio Recorders Studio B in Hollywood. The soundtrack album was certified gold in July of 1999 by the Recording Industry Association of America. The offered unusual acetate disc with MGM red-and-white label is stamped in blue “78” RPM and has handwritten notes for Prod “1829,” Date “6-19-64,” the number “2423-1” and the title “Girl Happy (Reprise)” and “(Picture)” in two different shades of blue ink. The reverse contains only the red Audiodisc markings. June 19, 1964 was just three days before principal photography began for the filming of Girl Happy. Based on the label writing, “Girl Happy (Reprise) / (Picture)” this could be a version used only in the film. The acetate measures 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The record presents in playable condition with only minor scuffs and scratches. Excellent condition.
