    Description

    RCA Camden Records Contract - Signed by Colonel Tom Parker (1970). Easily the most unusual contract in Elvis' career, this five-page handwritten contract in black Sharpie on giant parchment sheets (approximately 14" x 17" each) is the original binding contract between Elvis and the Colonel (dba All Star Shows) and RCA Victor to issue a series of albums on their subsidiary Camden label. It's dated June 29, 1970 and signed: "Colonel and Elvis Presley All Star [Shows]" and "Harry Jenkins for RCA Victor."
    Rather than being taken back to the office and replaced with a traditional typewritten agreement, this document became the official Camden contract, and is even accompanied by a handwritten note "From the Desk of Tom Diskin" (Colonel Parker's assistant) with the instruction to his secretary: "Mary, put this with the Colonel's personal contract records."
    This unique artifact provides fascinating insight into the Colonel's shrewd, thorough, and effective ability to look after his client in a shoot-from-the-hip, extemporaneous setting. COAs from the Elvis Presley Estate at Graceland and Rick Consola.
