Compared to other Elvis releases. This cover is a real mess. I have seen the cover front with RE with original no RE back with AFL1-3989 sticker. The majority of the covers I have seen include the original no RE back. However, the RE back also exists in relatively less common numbers with the original no RE front.

Disc: (1970) Orange label. Non-flexible vinyl.
