Maybe the rarest of all tape systems: The large RCA 1/8 inch cartridge tape only produced from 1958-64.

I am looking for the backsite of the G.I.Blues Catridge Box. Maybe somebody could help?

I've never seen the G.I. Blues cartridge but it's one of three Elvis cartridges listed in a "Living Stereo" Tape Cartridges catalog I have.
G.I. Blues KPS-3130
Elvis Is Back KPS-3127
Blue Hawaii KPS-4027

Wow! G.I. Blues Cartridge does exist. Any chance you could post a larger photo or email a hi-res scan? I have the LP album and a blank cartridge and want to make a copy to play on my RCA CP-1 cartridge machine.

Those are perfect, Thanks!!!!! Do you happen to have "Elvis is Back!" or "Blue Hawaii" cartridges? I made a box and label for "Elvis is Back!" but it was from a small picture I found on the internet and doesn't look very good. I've collected over 30 RCA pre-recorded cartridges so If I can return the favor and send you scans of something please let me know.

On the G.I. Blues, Is the spine and back the same color as the front?

Thanks again,
Jim

Thanks Dennis,
Blue Hawaii Cartridge artwork must be out there somewhere. I created the spine and back cover for the great front cover you posted of G.I. Blues. I've printed it and raided my wife's scrapbook closet to get her Xyron 900 adhesive machine. Allows me to print on plain paper and run it thru the machine to add adhesive to the back side, Works great and I also use the same method for the cartridge label.

Looks great Tom!

Better than the cheap and plain version RCA released. I guess they didn't want to spend money or lacked confidence in their own format. Suprising the covers are so plain for Elvis releases. I found a very small photo on the internet of the cover, Laying on a table so I had to skew the image to stand it up. I created the spine and back but didn't add song titles yet. Now... Who has Blue Hawaii Cartridge images?

Hey Tom,

Do you have the KPS-2231 Cartridge? (used for your Elvis Is Back!) if so could you post photos of the box and cartridge label? I don't have that one.
Thanks,
Jim

Wow!!!!!!!
Where did you find all those great images? Box cover, Back & Label _ Amazing!!!! I'll be busy tonight making Cartridges of All 3. I just bought the Stereo version of Blue Hawaii LP today. Guess all three Elvis cartridges really exist and not Just a rumor. I'm so happy!!!! Thanks.

Wonder if hi-res scans of other cartridges are out there?? I have several pre-recorded RCA, Bel-Canto & Stereomatic cartridges I collected when they could be had for a few bucks each. Not much luck on ebay for the past year as one bidder is buying up everything.
