Elvis Presley - Burning Love / It's A Matter Of Time + Moody Blue / She Thinks I Still Care - Multiple titles - 45 rpm Single, Test pressing - 1st Pressing - 1972/1977

Two Belgian original test pressings from:
Burning Love / It's A Matter Of Time
Moody Blue / She Thinks I Still Care

These records were produced in advance of the normal pressings and only distributed to the salesmen of the RCA company. They were made to take orders at the record shops to stimulate the upcoming releases.
Only five (5) of these records were made with a white label and handwritten titles. Moody Blue has also the producer of the song on it (Felton Jarvis) and the upcoming record number (11996).
As far as we know, other copies were destroyed after the original release, and the records were then presented to the record shops in their new form, with picture sleeves.
These records were used by the RCA sales representative, and were never in other hands since their pressings.
