This album was originally released in the UK also in mono on the HMV label in 1957. This re-issue was supposedly released due to pressure applied by the U.K. magazine 'Elvis Monthly' and it's Record Club. After RCA took over from HMV in the UK, fans found it difficult to obtain this 'missing' album unless they bought it from abroad at increased prices. The monthly tried to get its readers (estimated at 400,000) to guarantee to buy a copy. The editor even promised to buy 1000 copies! It bore the same front cover as the original U.S. version. This LP was the first to bear the new RCA VICTOR Small Silver Dot Logo. (even though the front cover had the later Red Dot logo) From this point on most mono and stereo albums would have the same catalogue number. (RD for mono, SF for stereo)

NOTE: This LP was issued using the matrix number G2WP. G2 = 1956        WP = Mono LP

Side 1: G2WP 7207     Side 2: G2WP 7208

This album was kept in stock by issuing re-pressings with the same catalogue number

until it was deleted by RCA in September 1970.
