Reference: (US) RCA LSP / LPM 2999 / New number assigned in 1977  AFL1 2999


Date of release: October 1964 

Information: All eleven songs from Elvis's 1964 film Roustabout were included on this soundtrack album. The cover of Roustabout featured a still photo of Elvis in the foreground and a carnival scene on the background. A banner hanging on the side of a tent proclaimed, "The Original Soundtrack Album from the Paramount Picture Roustabout". Sales of the album exceeded $1 million, but the RIAA has not certified it as a Gold Record.

In January 1965, Roustabout succeeded the Beach Boys Concert LP as the nation's number one album. After a week at the top, it was replaced by Beatles '65 (Capitol 2228). Roustabout spent a total of 27 weeks on Billboard's Top LPs chart. It would be eight years before Elvis would have another number one LP. In the same year, a stereo release also came out.
