The 10″ acetate disc was bought by White at auction for $300,000 in January. The two songs on the record – ‘My Happiness’ and ‘That’s When Your Heartaches Begin’ – were recorded by Presley in July 1953, when he was 18, at Sun Records studios in Memphis.
White took the record to Alan Stoker, a curator at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, who created a digital file from the acetate. Third Man will release the single on 10″ vinyl on 18 April for Record Store Day. [via Guardian]
