A special "Elvis is Back!" innersleeve was provided. G.I. Blues sold over 3.5 million copies, easily qualifying for a Gold Record, which was certified by the RIAA on March 12, 1963.

G.I. Blues entered Billboard's Top LPs chart in October 1960, at #6 - the highest debut position for any Elvis LP. In six weeks it was the number one album in America. G.I.
