    Description

    White River Water Carnival Catalog. Named after the White River that runs through Batesville, Arkansas, the White River Water Festival featured an early performance by a rising star named Elvis Presley in 1955. Presley was paid $100 to perform two sets; after the first set much of the crowd left, not happy with what they had seen (someone even filed a police report). The promoters cancelled the set and two weeks later the Batesville Chamber of Commerce requested a refund from Col. Tom Parker. Of course, in the long run Elvis had the last laugh. Featured is a catalog from the festival, with a promotional photo of Elvis with Scotty Moore and Bill Black inside. In very good condition with some minor wear and chipping along the lower spine.
