Name of Lot: Historic Country Music Autographed Albums
Brief Description: Three historic, country music recording artists, signed LP’s. Faron Young, Lynn Anderson and Sonny James. These signed LP’s are from the collection of a then young country music fan, who took thousands of photos and obtained hundreds of autographs in person, during the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. The collection merits a book due to the quality of the never before seen photographs, the fan obtained in her lifetime.
Brief Description: Collection of signed checks from the estate of RCA recording artist Hank Snow. Note one check was issued to Hillous Butrum, who was one of the Drifting Cowboys who backed Hank Williams.
1955 was key year for Hank Snow, having had tremendous success prior in record sales on RCA, but as well being involved in the development of a young talent…Elvis Presley. Stephen M. Shutts, President of Rockology Auctions discovered documents at Hank Snow’s Rainbow Ranch in 2007 that shed light on Hank Snow having been greater involved in the development of Elvis Presley, more than he was credited for, thus those same documents were influential in Baz Luhrmann’s film “Elvis”.
