    Shadows Of Knight Archive of Contracts, Recordings, and Photo (1960s). One of the early garage rock bands is best known for their Top 10 cover of Van Morrison's "Gloria" in 1966. They charted four more times and left fans wishing for more. Offered here are some great artifacts of the band, including a recording agreement with Dunwich Productions, dated February 6, 1968, signed by all five band members, band royalty statements, and a Songwriter's Agreement between Yuggoth Music and bandmembers, signed by lead vocalist Jim Sohms. There's also a promotional b&w 10" x 8" photo of the band and these recordings: a 10" one-sided acetate of "I'm Gonna Make You Mine" in VG-EX 6, signed by Sohms on the sleeve; a still sealed copy of the LP Shadows Of Knight (Super K 6002, 1969) in EX 7 (cut-out hole on back and shrink splitting at front top right)/ Still Sealed; and 10 smaller discs, including pictures sleeves (some signed by Sohms), imports, promos, and a flexidisc. Go to for a complete listing! Highly recommended! COA from Heritage Auctions.
