Info needed for those Elvis 78's

As anybody can imagine, no discography book would be complete without the help of others, same with "Elvis Presley's 78's around the world".

So this site will be always updated with information requests, maybe there's anybody having information I would need.

Missing records / numbers / titles:

CHILE maybe issued a promotional 78 numbered CH-1 on white label, the existance of that record / number remains unconfirmed yet, would need the titles for this record

Missing information for variations:

I am always looking for label variations to complete my book. But through the years I've learned that there are so many variations in nearly every country of the world that it's impossible to look for really detailed things. While seeing a record offered somewhere and checking with the thousands of labels I have saved on my PC there are often found some differences; most of them seem unimportant but for me - and my book - every variation has a story. So I am giving you some things you can look for to help me bringing the book to an unbelievable detailed end. Right now I've got a huge number of "small unimportant" variations, but some things are still missing or not completed and some things are coming up from time to time. The following things are important for my listing:

ARGENTINA
issued the purple-white labels in two different variations, they used NUEVA ALTA FIDELIDAD ORTOFONICA on some and on others this inscription is missing. I need to know the numbers you know with / without this script.
ARGENTINA
issued the black labels, black labels with white promo stickers on top and complete white label promo for the black label version in four different variations, they used INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA inscription on some and on others this script is missing, both labels were combined with another inscription: NUEVA ALTA FIDELIDAD ORTOFONICA. So there are labels as follows: label with Industria Argentina and with Fidelidad, label without Industria Argentina but with Fidelidad, label with Industria Argentina but without Fidelidad, label without Industria Argentina and without Fidelidad. I have to know which numbers were issued with or without the script combinations. I don't care of the position of those words on the label and I do not care about the variations of "en ingles" in several ways, I have mentioned those differences too but listing them seperately would use an own book for Argentina.


BELGIUM
issued labels with and without time under number for the black and the blue label variations. Some of them were issued in both variations combined with / without BIEM a. o. in a box. I need to know the numbers you know the variations of.

CHILE
issued 78's on a white label with green script, on a light green label with black script, on a dark green label with silver script and on a black label with silver script; right now I know that there were some pressed on more label variations. I need to know the numbers and label variations you know of.



HOLLAND
issued one 78 (20-7035 Jailhouse Rock / Treat me nice) on black RCA label. I don't see any reason NOT to issue a 78 similar to the existing 45 (47-9129 Teddy bear / Too much - see label on the right). Anybody out there having this record on 78 RPM?
IRELAND
issued a few 78's on this blue HMV label. Right now I've got information of only two different records - POP(I)408 and I.P.1248. Does anybody out there know more?
IRELAND
issued narrow and bold title script combined with I.P. / IP / and POP(I) prefixes and the Speed 78 / 78 inscriptions in several way. Any information regarding the label variation would be very helpful.

ITALY
issued several variations on the black label with small ball logo. Some labels have New Orthophonic in regular script, some in big letters, some of them are combined with BIEM boxes, some not. I need to know as much as you know of any available label, best thing would be label scans of each available record to finish my research with Italian pressings.

ITALY
issued several variations on the black and the blue RCA Italiana labels. Some labels have the number written in one line, some in two, some labels have New Orthophonic in regular script, some in big letters, some of them are combined with BIEM boxes, some not, and some numbers have two or three different variations from the things written above. I need to know as much as you know of any available label, best thing would be label scans of each available record to finish my research with Italian pressings.


PHILIPPINES
used two different black dog on top labels for the 78's, several titles were pressed on both types. One has colored dog on top and the other has a silver dog on top. Who knows more about the titles pressed on each label type?

PHILIPPINES
used two two variations of the black label silver dog, one type has New Orthophonic High Fidelity left of hole, one has it on top. I need the numbers you know with those variations.

SOUTH AFRICA
used the "1" and the "I" and they used "." and "," between the numbers on the old ball logo labels. Any list of your collection would be helpful to complete my listing



URUGUAY
issued the purple labels silver script sometimes with and sometimes without the stars beneath the Nipper, can anybody tell me the numbers that are with or without the stars on the silver purples?

Missing general information:

COLOMBIA
INDONESIA
PAKISTAN

CARRIBEAN countries
ECUADOR
EGYPT
GREECE
LEBANON
MALTA
SINGAPORE
SOUTH RHODESIA
TURKEY
VENEZUELA
possibly issued some Elvis 78's, need any info about those countries.

Missing information for picture sleeves:

SOUTH AFRICA possibly issued a picture sleeve similar to the USA 45 for Good luck charm, anybody there who knows about details or who maybe has the sleeve?

Missing information for company sleeves:

FINLAND I have not found a Finnish RCA 78 sleeve by now but I'm pretty sure that there was one. Maybe they used the German sleeve in Finland, maybe they had an own design. Anybody out there who can help?
INDONESIA I only have an Irama Lic. sleeve that came with every seen Elvis 78 that was offered until now, was there ever produced an Indonesian RCA 78 sleeve?

Missing information for several things:

I always need further information regarding Elvis 78 acetates, collectors series reissues, tributes and low-budget coverversions to complete the other sections. Every section is already filled with tons of information but I'm pretty sure that there are some things missing.

Is there anyone who can help with information?? Contact me at info@elvis-on-78.de and let's talk about to complete "Elvis Presley's 78's around the world" Discography book!!!!
