A rare Elvis recording with a remarkable back story is heading to auction today.

The acetate features a recording of Elvis singing 'Suspicion' a whole three years before it was released as a single.

It was recorded for the WHBQ radio station and represents the first public airing of the Elvis song, which was allegedly one of the King's favorites.

The acetate once belonged to North Kesteven council employee Julie Wall who spent decades stealing around £600,000 from car park machines- most of which she used to buy Elvis memorabilia.

Police originally confiscated and auctionned the memorabilia back in 2007 to repay the council and many of the items were snapped up by a collector in the Black Country.

 

The acetate is to auction at Astons Auctioneers today, where it is expected to bring up to £12,000.
