Did you know that there were two different "Long 33 1/3 Play" labels?
The first, before the end of 1959, has print around the rim of the label that mentions Camden, NJ.
The second, from 1960 to 1963, abbreviates "trade mark" as TMK and does not mention Camden.
You'll find the same variants of the "dog on top" label on 45's and EP's.

Unless you open those records up, you cannot know what pressing records they contain. Elvis’ LPs sold very well indeed as both mono and stereo records in the early ‘60s. Monos outsold stereos but the people who paid the extra buck for the stereo usually took MUCH better care of them. Finding either in NM is not difficult.

Rafter noted the bonus calendar associated with GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! These calendars were NOT included in the albums but were given away at point-of-purchase. Needless to say, not every retail outlet handed them out to customers and they are rather rare.

Wurlitzer’s use of the “drunken stereo” term is clever and apt (been there blah blah blah). “Staggered stereo” is the usual reference. The stereo pressings of pre-1960 Elvis albums (LSP-1254(e), 1382(e), 1707(e), etc.) with this label are hard to find and sell for much more than the true stereo records of post-1960 LPs.

Namralos is correct: The MONO labeled records are much harder to find than the price guides ever acknowledged (mine included). That is due to ever-increasing knowledge shared among buyers and sellers. He is also correct about the perimeter print on the 33 1/3 LONG PLAY labeled records.

Hope this helps,

NEAL
