Issued in 1999 by BMG and Elvis Presley Enterprised Inc.
This third CD in the series was sent out by the Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. to fan club presidents all over the world for the 1999 Christmas season. The CD is packaged in a glossy cardboard picture sleeve. The front cover features a full color photo shot of Elvis from 1957 overimposed on the winter Graceland scene. The title of the CD is printed along the top of the front cover. The rear of the sleeve shows us a picture of Graceland during winter along with 4 Cadillacs parked in front. At the top of the rear sleeve , the following phrase is printed in green / yellow color : “1999 Seasons Greetings from your friends at Graceland and Elvis Presley Enterprises , Inc.”. The disc itself is red with silver print. The title of the release is printed at the top of the CD. Also , a replica of Elvis’ signature is printed under the title. At the bottom of the CD , in large letters the following phrase is printed : “1999 Seasons Greetings - Elvis Presley’s Graceland”. On the right side of the disc , it states : “Special thanks to RCA Records”. In addition , a glossy paper insert which includes a message signed by Priscilla and Lisa Marie is included. Only around 600 copies of this release have been pressed. Again , technically this is not a bona-fide promo CD since it is not promoting any particular commercial CD. However , it is very rare and unique among Elvis collectors !
On the greetings card is a message from Pricilla And Lisa Marie Presley :
To all the Elvis fans club leaders and members worldwide , we send our very best wishes and sincere appreciation this holiday season and always.
