My Happiness Acetate For Sale?

November 11, 2008 | Other
In 1953 Elvis Presley made his first vanity recording for 4 dollars. The songs he recorded on the one-time acetate were "My Happiness" and "That's When Your Heartaches Begin". The acetate disc was given to a friend, Ed Leek who had attended the same High School as Elvis. The historic recording vanished from sight till 1988 and was released through BMG. The original disc is now up for sale according to an Irish blogger.

A true one of a Kind item..along with Thats when your heartaches begin, are truly the biggest of all the Elvis prizes. All the other stuff is commerical, or bought after he became famous and made money such a rings cars and suits etc but there is no equal to this, these are just songs by a nobody who became this biggest name that ever entered show business.
