Does anyone know if this actually came out on vinyl with the Purple "Elvis" print on left, rather than the usual red, or is this just a colour error? It's been showing this colour on various sites now for about a year. Does it really exist?

it's a colour error it was released on the sony legacy label earlier this year but was pink

Thanks ttwiise! I ordered this 2008 dated LP from the States earlier this year, & was not pleased to find the artwork was absolutely as normal – ie not purple print. However, as you say it was a re-issue on the Sony Legacy label (which is noted on the back of sleeve & on the big black sticker on the front and the black label has an "L" on it). So despite the outer artwork being the same, for a collector all was not totally lost, as I had thus inadvertently obtained a different pressing! (The previous vinyl I hold on this is a heavy duty 180 gram RCA orange label pressing from 2000, in a "Simply Vinyl" outer plastic sleeve. Anyone know of any more ?!)
