Graded by me and conservatively. A beautiful MP Sound track recording issued in 1965 of the 1961 movie "Blue Hawaii" starring Elvis Presley. Produced by Hal Wallis and co-starring Joan Blackman, Angela Lansbury and Nancy Walters. The stickers that you see on the back cover are not on the album but are part of a plastic bag that was added to protect the item. Original shrink wrap is still intact on the original cover.
Synopsis of Blue Hawaii.
Chad Gates(Elvis) has just gotten out of the Army, and is happy to be back in
Hawaii with his surf-board, his beach buddies, and his girlfriend. His
father wants him to go to work at the Great Southern Hawaiian Fruit
Company, but Chad is reluctant. So Chad goes to work as a tour guide at
his girlfriend's agency.

When calculating the shipping, please note a Double LP Set is considered two LP's, Boxed Collections are based on the # of discs in the collection.
