A promo-only blue vinyl mono copy of Blue on Blue by Bobby Vinton.
Offered for sale is a rare blue vinyl pressing of Blue on Blue by Bobby Vinton, issued in 1963 only as a promotional item.
Bobby Vinton is largely forgotten today, but in the 1960s and 1970s he put thirty songs into the American Top 40 charts, including 4 that reached #1.
Blue on Blue, released in 1963, was Vinton’s sixth studio album and included the hits “Blue on Blue” (#3) and “Blue Velvet,” which reached #1. Every song on the album has the word “blue” in the title.
You can listen to the title track here:
After “Blue Velvet” became a hit, the album was retitled to Blue Velvet and reissued with a different cover photo.
Appropriately enough, Epic Records pressed a few promotional copies of Blue on Blue on blue vinyl for radio station use, presumably to encourage airplay.
About this copy: This copy of Blue on Blue is a mono white label promotional copy pressed on blue vinyl. As far as we know, the blue vinyl copies were issued in mono only; we’ve never seen or heard of a stereo pressing that wasn’t on black vinyl.
The cover is VG+, with bits of ring wear and wear at the edges and corners.
The blue vinyl disc is M-, and looks as though it may be unplayed. It doesn’t even have a spindle mark on the label, though it does have one or two tiny scuffs from being removed from the heavy blue paper inner sleeve (included.) It’s the nicest copy of this record we’ve ever seen.
A beautiful copy of a scarce Bobby Vinton LP.
