Rare Elvis Presley Acetate Recordings from His Hollywood Movies Have Been Discovered by The Rare Collections

Tyler, TX, March 22, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Rare Elvis Presley Acetate Recordings from his Hollywood movies have been discovered by The Rare Collections. The collection features movie studio recordings of songs from the Elvis Presley movies; Follow That Dream (1962), Kid Galahad (1962), Flaming Star (1960) and Love Me Tender (1956). The recordings were discovered in a private collection in Orange County, California and are available for sale through The Rare Collections.

Acetate recordings were lathe-cut during the early stages of production. Changes were often made before the final versions were completed, therefore recordings often differ from the released versions and can include alternative takes, varied mixes, altered lengths, differing lyrics and altered tempos. These rare recordings have been tucked away for over fifty years and were passed from friends and relatives in the industry to The Rare Collections to help realize their value.

The collection includes several working titles printed on the acetate labels when the ultimate title had not been decided. One example within the collection is The Reno Brothers, which later became Elvisí first film Love Me Tender. Another shows a title as Thereís a Leak in This Old Building, which are lyrics to the tune Weíre Gonna Move. Acetates with such discrepancies are among the most desirable among collectors.

Prices on such unique items vary dramatically, but similar Elvis acetates have sold for as little as $100 to well over $1,000 each. The most valuable Elvis acetates known to exist are his first two personal recordings; the august 1953 My Happiness backed with Thatís When Your Heartaches Begin, and his early 1954 Iíll Never Stand in Your Way. Before being commercially issued by RCA/BMG on CD, offers of over $100,000.00 were made for these discs.

This particular collection of rare Elvis Presley acetate records is being offered for sale in whole or part to serious collectors through The Rare Collections. Collectors can contact Andrew Kirby, executive producer of The Rare Collections, for more information via the web at www.TheRareCollections.com or telephone at 903-345-IBUY.

I know it's pretty easy to bootleg stuff these days, but those sure do look pretty authentic to me... :hmm:

If those turn out to be originals, they could be worth some MAJOR $$$$$$$!!! Then the next question would be are there any unreleased songs hidden amongst the acetates?? ;)

THANKS for posting the info. Brian!! (y)

TCB!

I saw this earlier but didn't have a chance to reply. It looked legit to me. It's not like they are claiming to have unearthed lost recordings never before heard.
