Sometimes occur for sale.... I wonder

1. Why they have this "sold to us military only" sticker? Were they cheaper? Or did it was meant to avoid any resale??


2. Sometimes stickers stars with 32M, 72M 37M etc...what does these mean??


Reacords with stickers are us pressings and no other difference - sold at least in europe bases..... any ideas????

Interesting. I found a webpage for an Elvis record like that

Some one on Reddit asked a similar question a few years ago

I will see if I find anything else related to your question.

And welcome to the forum!

I dimly remember a typically acerbic quote from John Lennon :

"Rock died when Elvis joined the Army."

The following people thank Pineapple Records for this post:

Actually, the quote is "Elvis really died the day he joined the army."

More specifically, in context, the quote is...

"Up until Elvis joined the army, I thought it was beautiful music and Elvis was for me and my generation what the Beatles were to the '60s. But after he went into the army, I think they cut "les bollocks" off. They not only shaved his hair off but I think they shaved between his legs, too. He played some good stuff after the army, but it was never quite the same, It was like something happened to him psychologically. Elvis really died the day he joined the army. That's when they killed him, and the rest was a living death."

The following people thank Necko for this post:

That's funny because i consider Buddy Holly's death in 1959 the day that rock and roll briefly died before being resurrected in 1962 by The Beatles.
