Auction Description

I took this down the other day because the scans were blurry. I ironed the sleeve flat with a steam-iron and scanned on a different scanner than the overhead scanner I was using. I have added 4 example, mainly to show their differences, and show that not all of these sleeves were the sun-faded lime-green typically seen as representing the sleeve.  Drop me an email with any questions. The last four pics are not part of the auction, just examples. My sleeve actually has much more green in it than shows on my mionitor.

I ended it again, because all of the earlier, extraneous info continues.

 Elvis'  EPB 1254~ DJ promo with 2 disk & 12 songs in a temporary  photo-sleeve.  This is the complete-album set with 3 songs on each of the 4 sides & three catalog numbers on the sleeve and EPB-1254 on the labels. All vinyls shows very slight wear and play through without remarkable aberration; All labels are clean, except for side 3, which has a sticker (see pics).  Sleeve is  faded, wrinkled,  & yellowed with age, has some shelf-wear discoloration, but is intact in all other respects. The two disks come with in separate RCA sleeves, which fit comfortably together inside the outer sleeve; both inner sleeves have  the number 89 penciled in, presumably their price at some time, and have assorted tears and blemishes. I offer media-rate shipping with a tracking/confirmation number. I will combine shipping for more than one item, and I accept all forms of payment; If buyer is dissatisfied, I will refund bid price (not shipping) after the item is returned in condition it was in when I shipped it.

 Question: "Hi is the cover light green or any green in the sleeve?"Answer:You should be able to tell from the pic, but the only ink used appears to have been green, so there are multiple shades of green. The photo is the same iconic B & W picture used on the LPM, the EPB 1254 gatefold, and the 747 sleeves; but it was printed with a green filter and cropped differently to make room for the blurb at the top and the info at the bottom.
