RCA Living Stereo 45s

RCA Records released as a counterpart to their standard release 45s, which were monaural, a stereo release with “LIVING STEREO” printed at the top of each 45 with a prefix of “61-“. In the Elvis record world, these are nearly impossible to obtain. However, all “LIVING STEREO” 45s are quite difficult to locate or obtain. I have located a small stash of these.
