Offered is an RCA white label “NOT FOR SALE” promo copy of the double LP Elvis: As Recorded at Madison Square Garden. The first promo record label lists six tracks on side one, six on side 2, five on side 3 and four on side 4, missing only the beginning (theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey) and end themes from the concert which were included on the final release. The LPs come with their white, full gatefold with the one of the original two stickers on the front that list the song titles. Also included are the appropriate period inner sleeves with Elvis record advertising.

Elvis’ performances at Madison Square Garden in New York City in June of 1972 were some of his most momentous, considering not only the importance of the venue and the success of the concerts, but the fact that they were his first live performances in New York since the 1950s. The shows provided the performances for the live LP. The first three shows sold out immediately, a first in Madison Square Garden history, prompting the addition of a fourth. Each show was attended by over 20,000 fans, making it more than 80,000 fans over the course of the weekend who enjoyed a set list consisting of his early hits, fan favorites from his movies, new hits and other songs that included “American Trilogy,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “That’s All Right,” “Suspicious Minds,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Proud Mary” and many more. 

Each record measures 11 3/4 inches in diameter. The albums present in VG+ condition-extremely clean. The gatefold is missing one sticker and presents with staining and scuffing. Very Good to Excellent condition. The sleeve measures 12 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches.

1972 RCA White Label “NOT FOR SALE” Promo Copy of Elvis Presley’s Album Elvis As Recorded at Madison Square Garden with 2 LPs and Full Gatefold
