Offered is a lyric sheet from Elvis Presley's personal concert song binders for the song "Your Loves Been A Long Time Coming." These song binders were maintained by photographer and assistant to Colonel Parker Ed Bonja during the 1970's touring days. It was common for Elvis to use these sheets on stage, sometimes just to get the song started, but he often carried them for the length of the song (the photo at left shows Elvis using one of these sheets on stage). Bonja describes his job of keeping the song binders organized in his accompanying signed letter: "Lyric sheets would be used by Elvis Presley for rehearsals, recording sessions and on stage during performances...Starting with Elvis' book, I would gather all the lyric sheets that had been used--typically bunched together at the front of the binder--and file them back in the proper alphabetical order. Often, the pages had been ripped out of the binder...for some reason, I began keeping the torn and/or damaged sheets. At the time, I really wasn't sure why. Now these lyric sheets have become a rare treasure and piece of history." INDEED. The lyric sheet measures 8 1/2 x 14 inches and displays with expected on-stage use. Excellent to Mint condition.
