Issued in 1993 by BMG Europe for the Swedish Fan Club.

This is an escapee release. It was issued in 1993 and only a few collectors know of its existence. It is an individually numbered four-track CD , which comes in a slim jewel case and is limited to 125 copies. The front cover shows a black and white photo from 1957 on a yellow background. The title of the CD is printed in blue print on the right side of the cover. Along the left side it states : “Arr. Tidskriften Elvis”. In addition , under the title the credit is given to Lannart Svedberg and Ake Flodin for designing the layout. The inside of the inlay shows the famous picture of Elvis standing by the wooden fence which was used inside the 1957 Elvis’ Christmas Album. The Fan Club’s contact details are also printed along with the BMG logo. Under the RCA logo and the catalog number in the upper right corner , the 4 tracks contained on the CD are listed. In the lower right corner , “Promo CD” is printed in blue print. The individual CD number is printed in the middle of the back cover. The reverse of the inlay provides the background information behind the Elvis Festival in Sweden and gives the Fan Club contact information. The CD itself is identical to the commercial CD single – Don’t Be Cruel – issued in 1992. In other words , only the cover of this release is unique. However , it is still an extremely rare release.
