The Auction on Elvis Presley BLVD August 14, 2022
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 8/14/2022

Offered is an "OFFICIAL ELVIS PRESLEY SHOW" backstage ribbon for his recording sessions at Radio Recoreders in Hollywood used between September 5-7, 1957. Those sessions produced nine of the eventual 12 songs that ended up on the classic Elvis' Christmas Album, including "Blue Christmas," "White Christmas," "Santa Claus is Back in Town", as well as other singles "Treat Me Nice" and "Don't".

The backstage ribbon belonged to Elvis' high school classmate Tommy Young. These extremely rare ribbons were used in the late 1950s for Elvis' entourage, and the offered ribbon has been notated on the reverse by Tommy "Record Session Hollywood". Tommy was a high school friend of George Klein, and in 1957 George re-introduced him to Elvis. Tommy ended up being swept up in the Elvis life for about a year, traveling to shows, recording sessions and often riding motorcycles with Elvis. In August and September 1957, Tommy accompanied Elvis and his friends on the west coast trip including the northwest tour, the Hollywood recording session and the concert in Tupelo, Mississippi. The ribbon measures 2 x 4 1/4 inches and presents with several creases and an area of adhesive residue from being in an album. Very Good condition.
