While on a break from filming, Elvis appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show and sang “Love Me Tender” for the first time. Within; 2 weeks the song went gold, before it was even released.
“Love Me Tender” was the first song to ever achieve Gold status before it was available. To honor Presley’s incredible success, a Heavy Metal Gold “Love Me Tender” Limited Edition Record Souvenir Key Chain was produced. The gold record says Limited Edition, because this was the only time it was offered.
Considered the holy grail of Elvis Presley Souvenirs.
Long Live the King.:))
