Issued in 1997 by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.
This one track CD was sent out by the Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. to fan club presidents all over the world for the 1997 Christmas season. The CD is packaged in a beautiful full-color cardboard picture sleeve. The front cover features a gorgeous color photo shot of Elvis from 1956 on the winter Graceland background. The title of the CD in capital yellow print is printed across the bottom. Under the title , the “1997 Seasons Greetings From Graceland” phrase in white letters is printed. The rear of the sleeve shows a picture of decorated Graceland for Christmas. At the top of the sleeve , the following phrase is printed in yellow : “It’s Christmas time pretty baby , and the snow is falling on the ground…”. In addition , the following two phrases are printed in blue and white : Wishing you a joyous holiday season !” and “from Elvis Presley Enterprises , Inc. and the Entire Graceland Staff”. The disc itself is black with silver print. The title of the release is printed around the edge of the CD together with credits and “Elvis Presley’s Graceland 1997 Seasons Greetings”. 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. 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 to you this holiday season. We know how important this twentieth anniversary year has been to all of you , and it was a very special experience for us both to be with thousand of you at the Elvis In Concert '97 event this past August. We have always felt a great sense of friendship and supprt from you , but neither of us was quite prepared for the reception you gave us at the concert. We were overwhelmed and deeply moved. More than ever we thank you for your never ending loyalty to Elvis and for your continuing supprt of us and everyone at Elvis Presley Enterprises. You are truly the greatest fans in the world and no one knows that better than the two of us. Happy Holidays 1997.
