New Auction Coming Up

This Saturday, October 22nd, Juliens Auctions will auction off 13 Elvis items, including signed cards, a handwritten note, and allegedly signed guitar (1976) and the two original GE masters, quarter-inch tape of Elvis Presley’s first known concert recording and additional interviews with Elvis Presley, Scotty Moore and Biff Collie. That concert recording was made at The Eagle’s Hall in Houston, Texas on Saturday, March 19, 1955 during the Grand Prize Jamboree and recorded by KPRC radio in Houston, Texas. Elvis performed five songs that evening:“Good Rockin’ Tonight” “Baby Let’s Play House” “Blue Moon of Kentucky”“I’ve Got a Woman”“That’s Alright Mama”. Elvis was introduced for the concert by the master of ceremonies, Biff Collie, as “The Bopping Hillbilly.” On stage with Elvis were Scotty Moore on guitar and Bill Black on stand up bass. The pair was referred to simply as Scotty and Bill, later to be renamed as The Blue Moon Boys. A seven-minute interview conducted by Bob Winsett in 1956 with Elvis Presley in Presley’s dressing room following a performance. In the interview Winsett asks about the grueling tour schedule, Presley’s home, cars, Ed Sullivan, record awards, a supposed feud with Pat Boone and a potential film career. The fifteen-minute interview with Scotty Moore recalls the beginning of his relationship with Elvis Presley at Sun Records. Moore recalls he said after meeting Elvis “the boy sings pretty good…I think with the right song, it would be good on a record.” This lot (est. 30,000 - 80,000 $US) also includes the opportunity to acquire on a quitclaim basis all of the exploitation and distribution licensing rights the consigner may have to these recordings.
