The offered 45 RPM single has the unusual detail of a yellow label on the “Wonder of You” side and the as-issued orange label on the “Mama Like the Roses” side. The yellow labels were used for the “Not For Sale” copies sent to radio stations to promote the record prior to its release on April 20, 1970. It's quite likely that the offered example was produced on the very day RCA printed the “Not For Sale” copies at their Hollywood pressing plant. Further supporting this theory is that the matrix numbers are very similar to known examples of the “Not For Sale” copies, “ZPKM-1300-9S” and “XPKM-1152-9S.” Elvis recorded both songs on March 31, 1970, in RCA Studio A in Nashville, Tennessee. An incredibly rare variation for this sought after Elvis Presley single. The disc measures 7 inches (17.78 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Condition:GD+ with scuffing and scratches. Playable with hissing.
