Issued in 1998 by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.

This one track CD just like the one issued in 1997 was sent out by the Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. to fan club presidents all over the world for the 1998 Christmas season. The CD is packaged in a nice blue-color cardboard picture sleeve. The front cover features a sexy one-color photo shot of Elvis from 1956. The title of the CD in dark blue print is printed in the top right hand corner. The rear of the sleeve looks like a nicely wrapped up Christmas present with bows and the works. In the lower right hand corner , the following phrase is printed in light yellow color : “Seasons Greetings from your friends at Graceland and Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.”. The disc itself is blue with light gold print. The title of the release is printed at the top of the CD. At the bottom of the CD , in large letters the following phrase is printed on three lines : “Seasons Greetings - Elvis Presley’s Graceland”. In addition , a glossy paper insert which includes a message signed by Priscilla and Lisa Marie is included. Only around 600 copies of this release have been pressed. Again , technically this is not a bona-fide promo CD since it is not promoting any particular commercial CD. However , it is very rare and unique among Elvis collectors.
On the greetings card is a message from Pricilla And Lisa Marie Presley :
