Offered are three handwritten notes from Monarch Record Manufacturing Co. owner Nate Duroff to Sam Phillips, two of which concern Elvis Presley singles Sun 209 and 210, "That's All Right" and "Good Rockin' Tonight". In the two notes dated "6/30/55" and "7/16/55", Duroff expresses Monarch's need for the labels for both records as the Los Angeles record plant responsible for producing the Elvis Sun records distributed in the western U.S. The third note inquires "Sam-Is El Rancho Cordova in Salt Lake paying their bills? Let me know - Nate." "El Rancho Cordova" was a Mexican restaurant in Salt Lake City, Utah, and also a record distributor for the region around the city. This is a fascinating trio of missives from the earliest days of Elvis' career illustrating his growing popularity. The notes are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the "Elvis Presley Museum" signed by legendary Elvis collector and expert Jimmy Velvet. The notes measures 4 x 6 inches and present with a paper clip impression. Near Mint condition.
