ESK 2237 wo. picture sleeve  

Y eah so anyway this came with a cover that someone had clearly cut out of construction paper and run through their inkjet printer, which I quickly disposed of. Tried scanning it on the flatbed and the colors got funked up, so I finally just snapped a photo of it without the cover, which is what you’re looking at now. Maybe your version will have a cover, but most likely you don’t have one, so you’re in no position to cast aspersions on my version. This is a promotional single, though I have no idea what they were trying to promote; social discord maybe. “Elvis Is Dead” didn’t have a snowball’s chance in Tempe of gaining radio play. I’m not asking for Vivid Revisited, and I get that Elvis is a metaphor, he’s just not a very good metaphor. At least not a good enough metaphor to get this worked up over. The live version of “Memories Can’t Wait” and the studio track “Love And Happiness” are also available on Biscuits.
