A highly collectible item since it was not really a promo release in the usual sense. The cover (front and back) duplicates in full color the RCA Victor reissue of the 45rpm version of “That’s All Right Mama / Blue Moon Of Kentucky” in 1955. The back of the enclosed insert includes a brief account of the recording of this groundbreaking release by Klaus Schmalenbach from BMG International , Munich. The 45rpm labels of “Good Rockin’ Tonight” and “ I Don’t Care If The Sun Don’t Shine” are reproduced in black and white on the center pages. The sleeve also states “For Private Use Only - Not For Sale -Not For Broadcast”. The CD itself duplicates the “That’s All Right” Label in full color.

CD has a large siver center.
