    Elvis Presley Signed Agreement. A five-page contract between Elvis and Hill & Range Songs, Inc., dated November 1, 1956, granting the company song publishing rights for $1, signed on the last page by both Elvis and Col. Tom Parker. Note that the name of this music publishing company was to be "Gladys Music, Inc.," named after Presley's beloved mother. Elvis was very close to Gladys and many insiders say that he was never quite the same after her untimely death from a heart attack brought on by hepatitis in 1958. A few weeks after her death, Elvis prophetically said "I don't know why she had to go so young. But it did make me think about death. I don't feel I'll have a long life. That's why I have to get what I can from every day." In great condition with light tanning, some mild edge wear, and the standard staple and binder holes. With COA from PSA/DNA.
