Additional comments Japanese CD-single, 8cm disc. The word "SAMPLE" printed on the inner circle of the CD and the first two Japanese characters ("sample") on the red sticker refer to the fact that this is a promo CD-single. The lyrics of Calling Elvis are printed on the back both in English and Japanese. Tanzaku package. Also known as 'snap-packs' but in Japan they're called tanzaku. They are rather special and pretty hard to find. Their unique design means you can choose to keep them intact (as a long strip), or 'snap' the pack and display one like a picture. I decided to keep my version intact. When you look carefully, you can see the snap-lines on the scans.
