Whether simply to maximize sales in every format, or in the belief that many teenagers either didn’t have a long-playing record player or wanted the individual sides at the lowest per-unit price, RCA simultaneously released seven 45s incorporating every one of Elvis’ songs not previously available on a single. None of the singles charted, but the combined sales figures totaled up to 1.5 million copies.
