RCA Victor Reference Recording Acetate for Elvis Presley's Special
The offered 12-inch acetate is a most likely unique, customized 1968 version of the rare 1967 RCA record Special Palm Sunday Programming that was distributed only to radio stations and presented as a "Complete half-hour radio program with spot announcements and selections from the RCA Victor album 'How Great Thou Art.'" In 1967, the Colonel masterminded the half hour broadcast to be delivered and aired on hundreds of stations on Palm Sunday. The record was a complete broadcast with announcements between songs from the newly released Elvis album "How Great Thou Art." The offered acetate, however, hails from one year later, and has been customized for the George Cameron Station for Palm Springs, CA, KDES 92, and features the voice of local DJ Gene Thayer handling the announcements between songs. The introduction of the show states that "this special program for the Easter season is brought to you by Elvis and the Colonel with the hope that you and your family will find happiness and peace during this most sacred of seasons and on this day of national memorial for the late Reverend Martin Luther King." The memorial fell on Palm Sunday in 1968, and apparently the folks at the Palm Springs station thought the Elvis special was the perfect fit, leaving us with perhaps the only known copy of this one-of-a-kind Elvis record. The acetate's label lists only "Elvis" on Side 1, and on Side 2 it says, "Elvis Palm Springs 'Palm Sunday' Show - 1968" The record does contain the whole 30 minute program with the unique KDES announcements. Interestingly, side two ends with about 35 seconds of The Beatles "Lady Madonna," also indicating its 1968 vintage. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Colonel Parker's Blue Glass Ashtray From His Desk
<p>Cigarette smoking in the U.S. became fashionable in the 1950s, and half the population would partake in this custom that became the epitome of glamour. Smoking was socially acceptable, cheap and legal and it wasn't until health reports became increasingly numerous in the mid-1970s that cigarette smoking began to significantly decline. During this period when smoking was common and cool, the offered cobalt blue glass ashtray with scalloped edge sat prominently on the desk of Colonel Parker, as described in the letter from his widow Loanne Parker. The letter states, "This blue ashtray was on Colonel's desk for many years. Blue was Colonel's favorite color. The ashtray has been witness to many phone conversations with Elvis and many business deals." If only this ashtray could speak, imagine the stories it would tell! The ashtray, measuring 8 1/4 inches (20.96 cm) in diameter, comes with a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.</p> The Auction at Graceland
