Over the years RCA has printed loads of posters, banners, and many other. promotional items for radio stations, record stores, Las Vegas, and other places designed to let customers know what is coming out and what is currently available on Elvis. Because of the very short time period in which they were available and used these have become some of the most collectable and rare pieces of memorabilia in the Elvis world.

PRICE $500
COMMENTS In 1981 directors Andrew Solt and Malcolm Leo produced an Elvis documentary called THIS IS ELVIS. It combined archival footage with reenactments, and voice-over narration by pop singer Ral Donner, imitating Presley's speaking voice. Unknown to most Elvis fanatics, they commissioned famous jacket designer Mary Bassel of LP DESIGNS (who worked directly with such clients as The Walt Disney Company, Bill Graham Presents, Ninetendo, and Artist Manager Ken Kragen to design this jacket. She created custom Tour Jackets and accessories for such artists as Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Paul McCartney, Journey, Tom Petty, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Donna Summer, The J. Geils Band, Kenny Rogers, The Go-Go's and Dire Straits, among many others) but this was the only thing she did on Elvis.

Sometime in 1980 I received a call from Andrew Solt who was doing research for the movie and bought loads of unreleased Elvis video tapes and audio recordings from me. To my surprise, when the movie came out a year later, I received a package from him in the mail with this jacket containing my name "PAUL" on the left hand side of the front! I phoned and thanked him and he told me that he had only made ONE of these jackets with a person's name embroidered on it and that of course was mine. It was extremely nice of him to do this and I have treasured it ever since. I have never ever seen this jacket advertised for sale anywhere!

This extremely rare one-of-a-kind promotional embroidered satin jacket has the logo from the movie on the back and Elvis' "TCB" insignia on the upper right arm. The label inside shows the LP DESIGNS logo, Mary Bassel's name, and the size (LARGE).

It is in incredibly almost perfect (well, I hate to call anything perfect but this really just about is!).
