Based on the “Audiodisc” label style, which is seen used more prevalently by recording studios and others in the 1960's, the offered 45 RPM acetate most likely dates from that decade. However, “KCBQ 1170 in San Diego Family Radio,” whose label dons one side of the record, was purchased by The Bartell Group Family Radio in 1955, and the station became one of the nations first rock 'n' roll stations. It dominated the San Diego market in the 1950s and 60s with its innovative Top 40 programming format. KCBQ being an early player of rock 'n' roll records, coupled with the fact that both sides of the acetate feature Elvis' single “Milcow Blues Boogie,” released by Sun in 1954 and RCA in 1956 and again in 1958, make it possible that the acetate was produced in an earlier period. The record measures 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition: GD+ with moderate to heavy scuffing and a good number of scratches. Playable condition with some pops and hissing.
1960s (possibly earlier) “Audiodisc” 45 RPM 10-Inch Double-Sided Acetate with Elvis Presleys “Milkcow Blues Boogie” on Both Sides – From KCBQ Radio in San Diego, California
