Notes

During the 1950's Beeny was a preacher based in Saint Louis and was active in the anti-communist and anti-civil rights movements. In the 1960's he ran for several political offices including Governor and Lt. Governor in Missouri on a segregationist and anti-communist platform. He was never elected to office. During this period he also ran an "Anti-Communist" youth ranch in Wright City, Missouri.

In his later life he gave up his political ambitions and opened a museum based on his belief that Elvis Presley had faked his death and was still living. He operated the Elvis Is Alive Museum in Wright City and published a book on this theory in 2005. In 2007 he offered the entire contents of the museum for sale here on eBay with the winning bid being $8300. He then converted the museum building into a mission center and food bank to help the poor and homeless.

This record was dedicated to his son Kit Anthony Beeny who passed away on December 7th, 1963 at the age of five years old.

Record was released in a paper sleeve with blank back.
