A NEW PRESLEY SINGLE HAS BEEN ISSUED – IN IRELAND ONLY!
A NEW Elvis Presley single has been issued – IN IRELAND ONLY. It has been put out to complete with an Irish version, currently their best seller!
Title is “Kiss Me Quick,” which Presley featured on his “Pot Luck” LP, and which has been recorded as a single by Brendan Bowyer.
Permission was given by Colonel Parker for the Presley version to be released as a single in Ireland only, and an RCA spokesman told DISC there are no plans to seek permission for the record to be released in England.
The “Elvis Via Telstar” League is planning to send a petition to Colonel Parker for Elvis to perform on British TV via telstar.
Chairman of the League, Brian Slaughter, told DISC: “As it is apparently impossible for Elvis to make any personal appearances here, we shall send the petition to Colonel Parker, for permission to allow Presley to use telstar as a medium to satisfy his British fans, in either a live or filmed show”
Disc, 28 September 1963
