Loving Blue Vinyl

The Not Now Music budget label released the LP 'Elvis Presley: Loving You' on 180 Gr. blue colored vinyl. This is probably a delayed release as the back states "2021". 

Synopsis: Released in 1957, Loving You did very well at box offices around the world. In the UK the album was issued on 10-inch vinyl and topped the album charts featuring popular tracks Mean Woman Blues, (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear, Got A Lot O’ Livin’ To Do!, Party, Lonesome Cowboy, Hot Dog and the title song Loving You. 

In the US, the album was issued on 12-inch vinyl with four extra additional tracks topping the US album charts for 10 weeks. Those four songs are equally strong with Elvis covering Blueberry Hill, I Need You So and Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? 

Plus, the original version of Don’t Leave Me Now, which he would later re-record for his next film, Jailhouse Rock. The reception of the film placed Elvis among the biggest selling box office stars, and he was now managing both a musical and acting career with the call of the US Army draft.

Side A: Mean Woman Blues - (Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear - Loving You - Got A Lot O' Livin' To Do! - Lonesome Cowboy - Hot Dog - Party.

Side B: Blueberry Hill - True Love - Don't Leave Me Now - Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? - I Need You So.
