This variation is interesting for several reasons. The misalignment of the LOVING YOU title occurred between known properly aligned pressings. The label on the back resembles the Hollywood pressing from the viewpoint of the song title alignment and artist credits on the bottom, rather than the labels used on pressings before and after this pressing. A conclusion that may be drawn is that the Rockaway plant may have run out of labels and had to alter the Hollywood label to conform to the standards used at the Rockaway pressing plant. In doing so, the misalignment was made in the title on both sides. This would be corrected when a reorder of labels would be fulfilled. This conclusion is only my speculation based on only what can be read from the matrix numbers. Another interesting observation is that this is a transitional label combination that will lead to the following labels below, where both sides have Elvis Presley credited not in all caps.
