The offered 78 RPM acetate contains the version of Elvis Presley's song “Love Me Tender” that was used during the 1956 film's end title sequence. The 20th Century Fox label indicates the song as “Love Me Tender-End Title,” and the film's production number as “A-780.” This end title version of the song was recorded on October 1, 1956, more than a month after the initial track was put down. It runs for 1:03 and builds to a dramatic finish. This version was never released as a single, obviously. Also included is the original auction advertisement that lists this record, from Goldmine Magazine, dated November 3, 1989. The disc measures 12 inches (30.48 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition: VG with a few scratches and scuffs and remnants of a white film from improper storage, though it doesn't affect playback too much. Some hiss.
