Elvis Presley Signed LP. An authenticated autographed copy of Having Fun On Stage With Elvis Vinyl LP. Supplied with a certificate of authenticity from Essential Elvis (1) in the UK, a market leading unconditional 90-day money back guarantee and the Presley Collectibles lifetime COA. Worldwide shipping is available.

What makes us sure this is a genuine Elvis Presley Signed LP is that Elvis has signed on the cellophane wrapper. This makes the signature delicate (it has been stored under glass for over 30 years) but a forger would have removed the wrapping and signed the LP cover. This product is currently framed but will be supplied unframed to reduce shipping costs.

Having Fun With Elvis on Stage is the strangest LP in the Elvis Presley catalogue.  It’s also the only legitimate American LP released in his lifetime that was issued on a label other than RCA.

In 1974, Elvis’ manager, Tom Parker, decided that a souvenir album that could be sold to fans at Elvis concerts would be a good way of making additional money for both himself and Elvis.

Unfortunately, Parker and Presley had sold the rights to Elvis’ entire back catalogue to RCA the year before.  That meant that not only would they have to license any Elvis recordings for this album from RCA, but they also wouldn’t receive royalties for those recordings, as RCA now owned them outright.

The solution was Having Fun With Elvis on Stage, an album that consisted entirely of between-song spoken banter taken from Elvis’ various concert recordings, and carries the phrase “A Talking Album Only” on the back cover.

The album was released on a special label that Parker created for this venture called Boxcar Records, and it was sold only at Elvis concerts and was not available in stores.

There’s no music at all; the entire album consists of Elvis talking.  Not only that, but the spoken material is seemingly thrown together at random, without context.

RCA’s lawyers weren’t impressed with Parker’s plan to circumvent them, and shortly after the album’s release, they insisted that the label had the rights to this record, too.

The Boxcar pressings were soon deleted and the album was reissued on RCA, where, oddly enough, it actually reached the charts, peaking at #130 on the U.S. album charts and #9 on the Billboard Country charts.
