coming soon! a new series about elvis’ gold standard 45s

Es­ti­mated reading time is 1 minute.


An all NEW se­ries of up­dated and rewritten ar­ti­cles about the Elvis Presley Gold Stan­dard Se­ries of 45 rpm sin­gles and EP albums!

NEW discogra­phies – NEW la­be­l­o­gra­phies – NEW photos of some re­ally rather rare records!

Plus an all NEW, up-to-date price guide!!!

I have been busy com­pletely re­vamping the se­ries of nine ar­ti­cles I wrote about Elvis’ Gold Stan­dard sin­gles and pic­ture sleeves and the new ar­ti­cles will be so, so, so much better:

More com­plete.
More ac­cu­rate.
More interesting.

And I have more help from more col­lec­tors this time. Here are a few im­ages to tease you into wanting more:


Elvis 1964 BrowserBox Thibault 2 1000

This is the browser box used to dis­play the first Elvis Gold Stan­dard orig­inal re­lease, Kiss Me Quick / Sus­pi­cion, re­leased in April 1964. The box also dis­plays the spe­cial reis­sues of five older Gold Stan­dard sin­gles, each in a brand, spanking new pic­ture sleeve. The box and records above are from the col­lec­tion of Jules Thibault, which is why each of the records and pic­ture sleeves are in pro­tec­tive, plastic outer sleeves. He pur­chased this box in like-new con­di­tion on eBay a few years ago and he gra­ciously took photos of it for these articles.


Elvis GS 0631 red a LaPine 600

Elvis GS 0631 red b LaPine 600

This is the super-rare red label reissue of I Feel So Bad / Wild In The Country. When I wrote the orig­inal Gold Stan­dard Se­ries ar­ti­cles four years ago, I couldn’t even prove this record ex­isted! But an­other gra­cious col­lector sent me these photos and two others of an equally rare red label record.


Read the ar­ti­cles as I pub­lish them and find out. There will be at least ten ar­ti­cles in the se­ries. I’d tell you more but—Hell’s Belles!—I haven’t even de­cided on a col­lec­tive title for them.

PS: If you have been redi­rected here from one of my older ar­ti­cles about Elvis’ Gold Stan­dard 45s, it’s be­cause I don’t want you reading old and mis­leading information.

Pic­ture from Kissin’ Cousins movie press­book with Browser box... BIG NEW HIT! ‘KISSIN’ COUSINS’

img446 jpg.jpg

Is the Browser box from your collection?

Rate this article: :


447-0610 “I Got A Woman” / “I’m Counting On You”
447-0611 “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Cry” / “I’ll Never Let You Go”
447-0612 “Trying To Get To You” / “I Love You Because”

The above three Gold Stan­dard Se­ries 45s are the rarest of the rare. They sold so poorly they were deleted by 1963 and you will NOT find them listed in any RCA cat­alog or back cover listing Elvis Presley singles.

Thank you.

Yep! All have no ring wear!

How do I post photos?

I’m waiting to read more about those rare 5 GSS sin­gles and the values. Love to read more about Elvis Records.

Thank you for writing back!! I re­ally love col­lecting Elvis Records. In fact, I have those 5 GSS white label promos with sleeves. Fac­tory new!! You will not be­lieve what I paid for! So, I’m ex­cited to learn more about them records and other Elvis great records.

The five with pic­ture sleeves and white label promos—the five that are hard to get.

Also have “Kiss Me Quick” / “Sus­pi­cion.”

well, the world is waiting!
