I noticed you put td after a lot of things, what does this mean?
Very nice record. I have never seen or heard about it. Is love me tender the only Elvis cut on the record? I can't help with value, but I'd guess this holds quite a bit of it!

I wondered about td as well...I think it means transcription disc.

td is transcription disc, this one is 16 inches dia. i'm sorry i didn't make this clear. before radio stations got tape machines in the 60s everything broadcast was either live in the studio or on these records. few survived because they were usually played once and tossed. i had one [or maybe 2] of these 30+ years ago in g- condition and got 500 for it. this one is a vg+ to m-. only one E cut on it, the other artists are of no consequence.

I love that it tells you on the label to start play from outside Laughing ....just in case you weren't sure. It seems odd it would be 16" for only 3 songs per side. What is there like 12 mins. of music on a side?

the timing for the E cut is 5:32, i think he talks along with the song. i no longer have access to a turntable to play these. the tone arm must span the 16 inch dia so the turntable is quite large and heavy. i just passed on buying a td turntable in so ca a couple of days ago because of its condition and it had the original "heavy" tone arm. they make a replacement tone arm for them, i think it's titanium and very expensive. most of the radio stations took these turntables out in the 70s.

the reason they tell you to play it outside in is some of these tds played inside out!

One sold for $811 in 2008. I would say that is a good ball park estimate.
