NOTE: Summer 1978 sessions according to Steve Kelley these tracks were handed over to Sun Records during the summer of 1978 however they were recorded earlier prior to elvis presleys

death in 1977. This was the complete elvis sessions as they are

referred too origianlly done for Boblo records in 1978 and used for Jimmy Ellis audition for Sun Records. Being that we all know the results of this endevor he was obviously hired.

SUN RECORDS



When Shelby S. Singleton bought the Sun Label, he started one of the most intensive reissue campaigns ever. Many, many more albums were issued on Sun International than had been issued on Sun in the first place. Albums, singles, outtakes, unreleased material, it didn't seem to matter; Singleton mined it all in a series of albums easily outnumbering the original Sun LP output by tenfold. He also leased the masters extensively to other labels, notably Charly in England and Rhino here in the US.



The Sun International 1000 series was a late bloomer, starting almost a decade after the 100 series. Many of the albums

in this series were issued on both gold vinyl and black vinyl. The series started with the controversial Elvis album called The Sun Years, and after a minor bit of legal manoeuvering, the series settled down to the usual stuff.



Interestingly, almost all the albums in the 100 and 1000 series (as well as albums in Singleton's sister Plantation and SSS labels) had the following promise on the back cover: "This record is guaranteed against all defects including breakage, wearing out, or any dissatisfaction on the part of the purchaser. If this recording should become unsatisfactory in any

manner, it is guaranteed for life. You may return this record to The Shelby Singleton Corporation, 3106 Belmont Blvd.,Nashville, Tennessee 37212 with one dollar for postage and handling and we shall replace it free of charge." It is not known how many customers took them up on this offer, but it was probably not very many. Whether the guarantee is still in force is unknown. "Lifetimes" tend to be relative, these days.
