|Elvis Presley 78 Rpm Records are original vinyl records produced by Elvis Presley.
Brief history and description
78 RPM records were once the sole format of recorded music before CDs, LPs and seven-inch EPs came along, and they were referred to as 78 RPMs because they were played at 78 rotations per minute.
Given the fact that Elvis Presley is considered to be one of the most famous rock singers of our era, his 78 RPMS are considered to be highly collectible among RPM record collectors and die-hard Elvis fans alike.
The majority of Elvis Presley's 78 RPM records were produced by Sun Records in the early 1950s, and some of the most common RPM records include "Milkcow Blues Boogie" and "That's Alright."
Guide for collectors
78 RPM records of Elvis Presley's most notable hits, such as " "That's Alright" and "Milkcow Blues Boogie" are considered to be the most rare and valuable among collectors, especially if they were recorded during the early 1950s. 78 RPM records that were once signed by Elvis Presley also drive up the value of the item.
In the UK, Elvis Presley's RPM record of "A Mess of Blues" is considered to be extremely rare because only the seven-inch vinyl single version of the song was mass produced.
Restoration of an Elvis Presley 78 RPM record is not recommended.
