Description

    The Eagles: Their First Record Contract (1971). A monumental document in the history of the Eagles (and Rock N' Roll in general), presented here is the band's very first recording contract which produced their legendary debut album, "The Eagles". 24 pages, dated September 12th, 1971, The Eagles agree to a one-year, one album term with Asylum Records, with the band receiving 9% of the royalties from the sales of the album. Additionally, The Eagles also agree to extend Asylum a four record option, which of course was exercised by Asylum after the band's self-titled debut became a major hit. Signed on the last page by Don Henley and Bernie Leadon in black felt tip pen and by Glenn Frey and Randy Meisner in blue felt tip pen. Some light toning at the edges and minor edgewear from expected handling, otherwise in fine condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
