    Let me be there-The promotion single

    In 1974 there was the idea that "Let me be there" could be a single release.
    A few promotion copy's where send to radio stations.
    Without a sleeve..

    The idea: Since it's not a "real" single,it's a fun thing to make a cover for it.

    Here's the result.

    Aint this fun?

    Very cool design, and I didn't know about that. I bet that single would have done well...Some people say Elvis shouldn't have done that song, but I don't see that.

    Do you have one of those copies, Johan?
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    No Bobby,i don't...

    Never saw one too,but i know it's out there..for a lot of money i guess...

    I wonder why they decided not to release it,it's a catchy tune and much better then the version of Olivia Newton John.

    RCA had strange ideas back then...

    Thanks Steve...

    But..eh...there is no back...

    Remember those singles had the same back and front design.

    Or maybe i'm to lazy...

    FANTASTIC DESIGN JOHAN!!!!

    I think if RCA had released Elvis' version as a single in '74, it would have done very well!!! I agree that Elvis' version is much better than Olivia Newton-John's!!!

    Thanks Steve!!

    It could make a great single,and a hit for sure!!

    A shame RCA didn't saw it that way...

    I think they realised the mistake and put the song for that reason on the "Moody blue" album...
