no, not a flexi, but a cardboard record that was attached to the cover of
Elvis Answers back magazine, back in 1956. It was also released as The Truth
About Me, as a flexi in the US, and as a shellac 78 in the UK. All of them
made it to this section several times ...

There are 2 US versions: one cardboard, with 2 different labels, and one
thin flexi. Made, and distributed by different companies.
The UK 78 shellac, small sized, came free with Weekend Mail magazine in 57.

The first Elvis 4 track shellac?! Wunderbar!
Any chance putting up the sleeve you describe as 'stunning' ?!
This 78, is quite an eye opener at 6 in the morning... Thank you!

It's offered with regular Elvis RCA sleeve. I doubt that this is the true sleeve for the promo. I think it was issued in regular SA RCA sleeve without Elvis or with a special sleeve for promotion use!!!

I never saw a picture with Uncle Penn - Oakie boogie. I know there are more fake acetates circulating like Tomorrow night etc.

It's spelled Uncle PEN... one N at the end.
I wonder when this misspelling started to appear? Must be at least 40 years ago, as to this
day almost always Pen is Spelled PENN.
And that's incorrect.
