SPECIAL RELEASE!!!
07863-62449-7-A    HEARTBREAK HOTEL / BLANK. NEW BLACK RCA LABEL WITH NIPPER ON UPPER RIGHT SIDE!
This is one very unusual Elvis release but no information can be found in any price guides or online. This is a one sided 45RPM  with the same cat # as the 1992 silver label version which most people think was only a juke box release but it wasn't as it was available commercially although very few stores carried it. That two sided release had HOUND DOG on the flip side. The number in the run out grooves (both sides) on this is "47-6420" (of course the original RCA catalog number) and it's written in!   Anyway, even though the flip side is blank the song I WAS THE ONE actually plays!!

Apparently it was made only for selected one stop distributors in a few large markets months  BEFORE the COMPLETE 50'S MASTERS BOX SET came out (the date on the sheet is late September 1992!) and sent to them as a kind of promo vehicle or "incentive" item or giveaway.  The 50's MASTERS set came out around two or three months later (Nov or Dec 1992).  The silver label single came out later in November.  As I suspected there was no info at all as to why this was issued on the old NEW BLACK label (which I don't think had been used since sometime in the early-mid 1980's) and there was no info as to why it has "STEREO COMMERCIAL" on this one sided label and not on the silver label version issued later.  Also note that this black label one says "GLADYS MUSIC" whereas on the later silver one it says "TREE PUBLISHING" so obviously someone made a mistake and changed it.  Plus it has "NEW ORTHOPHONIC" on the right for unknown reasons!

The condition is basically VG 7 but there are noticeable "scuffs".  Not sure exactly what to call them but they don't look like scratches. Actually without these I'd even call it VG +. $30
