Offered is a beautiful copy of the 1954 Sun Records 209 45 RPM 7-Inch Single of Elvis Presley's “That's All Right” and “Blue Moon of Kentucky”. This particular copy of the single is defined as a "Memphis pressing" because of the small, circular indentations in the labels on both sides. These are holes in the stamped vinyl created by the master stamper made from acetate struck on the Presto brand lathe Sam Phillips used at the time in his studio. Later copies without these so-called "delta" marks (there are three of them that form a triangle, or the Greek letter "delta") were stamped at other plants in Los Angeles and Philadelphia. The 45 has the proper matrix numbers in the dead wax areas of both sides, with “U-128-45 72” marked on side A and “U-129-45 72” marked on side B.  Adhered to the label of the "That's All Right" side is a "SAMPLE COPY" sticker. It is likely this sticker is from a later period, and it could probably be removed without damaging the original label. The record measures 7 inches in diameter and presents with mild scuffs and a few scratches. The label on the "That's All Right" side has a small area of paper loss. While technically VG, the bold yellows of the label help it present much better.
