After years of recording only film soundtracks, Elvis began to segue back into non-film-related recordings with his 1968 Christmas television special soundtrack, also known as his Comeback Special. After this success, Elvis recorded his 10th studio album called From Elvis in Memphis. Released in June of 1969, the 12 tracks were recorded at American Sound Studio in Memphis in January and February 1969. Elvis used the American Sound Studio’s house band, known as the Memphis Boys, to give the album’s sound a country soul flare. The album reached the thirteenth spot on the Billboard charts and number two on the country charts, while the single “In the Ghetto” reached number three on the Billboard charts. The album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in 1970. Offered is an RCA Custom Records acetate containing the typed information “Elvis Presley / 33 1/3 / Stereo / Side No. 2” and two handwritten notations with one across the top of the label indicating “Final” and the other down the side in blue ink, “Power of My Love / Gentle on My Mind / After Loving You / Gravel Road / Any Day Now / Getto.” The reverse of the acetate has no label or markings. Based on the label notations, six of the songs from side 2 of the album of 12 songs are contained on this acetate that measures 12 inches (30.48 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The acetate is in excellent condition overall with only very minor scratching to playing surface side.
