Offered is an extremely rare early version of the Elvis Presley concert backstage pass from the collection of sound engineer Bruce Jackson. This version precedes the well known varieties of stickers and pinbacks used later in the 1970s--it's simply a small piece of satin fabric with "ELVIS" inside of a plastic nametag holder. The photos at left show both Joe Esposito and Dick Grob wearing this style in 1970.

The Bruce Jackson Collection - Elvis Presley Concert Sound Engineer

These items and another 22 lots in this auction emanate from the estate of Elvis Presley's Sound Engineer, Bruce Jackson. In the 1970s. Jackson worked with Claire Brothers Audio Enterprises and was responsible for the onstage monitor sound for Elvis Presley for 100s of concerts. The offered artifacts hail from that period of Jackson's career. He would go on to work with Bruce Springsteen for 10 years, and did sound for Barbara Streisand, as well. In addition to Presley, Springsteen and Streisand, Jackson mixed concert sound for Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart and the Faces, Barry White, Jefferson Airplane, Ozzy Osbourne, Carly Simon, Three Dog Night, the Jackson 5, Cat Stevens, Glen Campbell, Art Garfunkel, Procol Harum and Lou Reed. Jackson kept a vast and interesting assortment of backstage passes, crew ephemera and tour documents from his time with Elvis Presley, some of which have rarely been seen by fans. We hope you enjoy the collection.
