Offered for sale is a copy of the rare live album To Know Him Is To Love Him by Elvis Presley, pressed on blue marbled vinyl.
Most copies of this album were black vinyl, and a few were issued on either blue/black marbled vinyl or multicolored vinyl.
About this copy: This copy of To Know Him Is To Love Him is an original 1978 pressing on the Black Belt Records label.
The cover is M- and is still in the original shrink wrap. Unlike many copies, this cover has no splits.
The cover has a blurb that says, “Special limited edition pressed on blue-black vinyl,” but all covers had this blurb, including the copies on black vinyl.
The disc appears to be black vinyl at a casual glance, but if you hold it up to the light you can see that it is actually blue with black swirls.
The disc is M- with a couple of faint scuffs from being removed from the paper sleeve. The record has clearly only been played a couple of times. The labels on the disc say, “DJ Copy – Not for sale.”
A nice copy of a rare Elvis LP, and only the second copy we’ve ever had for sale.
