Jack revealed that he recently purchased Elvis Presley’s first-ever vinyl recording (for a whopping $300,000 no less!) and he plans on sharing it. White plans to reissue the single via his own Third Man Records this Record Store Day, April 18.
The split acetate 10-inch contains covers of both “My Happiness” and “That’s When Your Heartaches Begin” and was recorded in 1953. Jack says the reissue will use “the actual unrestored audio as it currently exists,” crackles and all, and that the label has paid “the utmost attention to detail… in order to create an object so close to the historic original as to almost be indistinguishable from one another,” right down the “plain, nondescript, of-the-era sleeve.”
