Promo Discs

Here's a couple of interesting little items.  The late Shelby Singleton of Sun Records sent these out purely as attention grabbing items. They can not be played.  Great promotional idea.

SINGLES
HONEY/EBONY EYES
SUN 1142 U.S.A.
Credited to Orion
NOTES: Gold vinyl disc with excess plastic round edges. Yellow labels with brown lettering and sprayed with the word "Hot". Covers (if any) details not known.
Used to promote the release of the "Honey" single.

ALBUMS
REBORN
SUN 1012 U.S.A.
Credited to Orion
NOTES: Gold vinyl discs with excess plastic round edges. Yellow labels with brown lettering and sprayed with the word "Hot". Covers (if any) details not known.
Used to promote the release of the REBORN album.
Note the two different Sun label designs. The second one is very different as the label design is similar to Sun 45rpm single releases. At least two albums have been made available with this alternate label design: DUETS and REBORN.
