This offering features the earliest known press release for Elvis Presley on Colonel Tom Parker's Jamboree Attractions letterhead. This press release template lists Bob Neal as Personal Management and describes Elvis as “the 20-year old fireball from the Louisiana Hayride.” At the bottom of the release it states "Exclusive Representation Hank Snow Enterprises." This arrangement between The Colonel and Hank Snow would be short lived, as we know. This release was issued when Elvis was still on the Sun record label. The press release was purchased by our consignor directly from the family of Tom Diskin's, Colonel Parker's right hand man, nearly 20 years ago. The sheet measures 8 1/2 x 11 inches and presents with mild toning. Near Mint condition.

1955 Earliest Known Elvis Presley Press Release from both Colonel Parker, Hank Snow and Bob Neal
