Elvis Sings "Flaming Star"

Very smart clean vinyl housed in a gloss cover.

Singer Presents Elvis Singing Flaming Star and Others is a compilation album by American singer and musician Elvis Presley, released by RCA Records in October, 1968. It spent five months available only at select retail stores featuring products by the Singer Sewing Machine Company as a promotional tie-in with Presley's upcoming Christmas television special on the NBC network, which Singer had sponsored.[2] It was reissued for normal retail channels as Elvis Sings Flaming Star in March 1969, becoming the first Elvis Presley budget album on the RCA Camden  label, catalogue CAS 2304.[3] The 1969 release peaked at number 96 on the Billboard 200 album chart.[4] It was certified Gold on July 15, 1999, and Platinum on January 6, 2004, by the Recording Industry Association of America.[5]

Due to the chart success of this album upon reissue in 1969, RCA Records elected to release more Presley titles on the Camden label through 1972. These budget LPs were shorter than the standard running time, featuring some unused soundtrack recordings and previously released items.
