Elvis Suspicion Aston
Elvis recorded this early version of Suspicion in 1961

The version dates to 1961, three years before the official release. The B side includes a plug for a Ray Charles concert at the Ellis Auditorium in Memphis.

Steve Kennedy, a spokesman for the auction house, told the Daily Express: "It is a piece of history.

"On the B-side you have social history, the first time the 'coloureds only' signs were taken off the auditorium washrooms. Elvis loved Suspicion but the record company wanted it for Terry Stafford."

We have this genuine strand of Elvis' hair for sale.
