LETTER OF AUTHENTICITY
Re: ELVIS PRESLEY ORIGINAL “SUSPICIOUS MINDS” SHEET MUSIC USED FOR THE 1969 RECORDING SIGNED BY PRESLEY TWICE FROM WAYNE JACKSON WHO PLAYED IN THE SESSION
Mr. Wayne Jackson was a member of the “Memphis Horns.” Mr. Jackson played on the sessions for “Suspicious Minds” at American Sound Studios in 1969.This is the original hand written score that he used. Mr. Jackson ask Elvis to sign it for his 2 daughters. Elvis signed it on the back. “To Carla from Elvis Presley” and “To Linda from Elvis Presley” in blue ink. There also some additional writing that Elvis made between the signatures which we cannot make out.
The musical score is written in pencil with the title of the song on the top center with Elvis Presley written to the right. Measures 11 x 15.5 inches and is folded. On the back is taped 2 articles that mention Mr. Jackson participation in the sessions. Mr. Jackson wrote his own Letter of Authenticity on the sheet music. “To Carla, with Love-On Christmas , 1978! This is a piece of the original manuscript from Elvis’s session in Memphis in 1969,autographed by him to you and Linda, and played by me. I thought you should have it.” Much Love Dad (Wayne Jackson)
Letter of Authenticity is from Ms. Carla Jackson Lee; Linda Jackson; David Collins ; EP Memorabilia and visual confirmation from Mr. John Heath that it is that of Elvis Presley.
In regards to the analysis of this signature it is that of Mr. Presley without question and is of the time period of 1969 based on the distinctive character of the signature. Mr. Presley signature would vary through the years and this one is consistent with this time period.
My background stems from the fact I am foremost a Elvis Presley fan dating back to 1962 and since, this passion has flourished to my own company EP Memorabilia dealing with related personal effects selling world wide since 1990 (please refer to bio and articles I have written on above subject manner). Many of my pieces include autographs from Mr. Presley which have made me quit familiar with his handwriting.
I purchased the above item from Mr. David Collins who has been collecting Elvis Presley personally owned artifacts since 2000.
Many of his items were featured in various auctions such as “Graceland Authenticated Auction” held at Graceland in 2014.
Mr. Collins was solicited by Graceland to list several of his personal collection to share with the fans.
