I have that record -- it's not rare -- and it was disclosed as being a 
fake immediately when it was released.  It was supposedly recorded 
BEFORE the Sun records which is why it wasn't a Sun record.  You can and 
hear the record on a youTube that has only been viewed 141 times, and 
the story I reprint below from that posting seems to tell the story of 
this fake very well.  The fade out you hear just before the grafted-on 
concert closing was the real give away to me that it was a fake the 
first time I heard it back in the late 70s.  Steve -- why don't you send 
this info to the producer of the garage show that sent his URL to you?

Soon after Elvis has died, record come out that claims to be his first 
professional recording from 1954. Pete Falco said that he have paid 
Elvis $15 to record the song `Tell Me Pretty Baby`at Audio Recorders 
studio in Phoenix.
Only that Audio Recorders first start doin business until 1957. Before 
that it was Ramsey´s Recording Studio. Once even singer Michael Conley 
claims that he sings it. Mystery ended when Bear Family issued 
`Rockin´And Bobbin`In The Desert vol. 2 ´cd. There is the two sided 
acetate recorded in Audio Recorders in maybe early 60´s by Jamie Falco 
And The Red Dots. Falco´s version of Don Cole´s Stop appear on that cd. 
The other side of that acetate is the very same `Tell Me Pretty Baby´ 
that you hear in here (not in that cd.)
