The offered record was signed in blue ballpoint pen by Elvis Presley for BB King's bandleader, Cato Walker, when he met Elvis in Las Vegas in 1973. There is a video of Cato Walker recounting meeting Elvis here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1t9V_BlIUjs&feature=youtu.be The LP is signed on the cover, across the clouds on the image of the Earth, and it reads “To Cato, from Elvis Presley.” The LP itself is one of the earlier printings, as evidenced by the missing track listings on the back cover. RCA had to improvise a song listing for these first copies by applying stickers to the shrinkwrap. It would stand to reason that the copies Elvis would have received would have been some of these early versions with the songs missing from the back cover. The signed record emanates from Cato Walker's family. The LP measures 12 ¼ by 12 ¼ inches (31.12 x 31.12 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The record sleeve shows moderate wear to the edges. The LPs show little signs of being played. Excellent to Mint condition overall.
Elvis Presley Signed LP “Elvis Aloha from Hawaii via Satellite” with Inscription to Cato Walker, B.B. Kings Bandleader-Acquired from Walkers Family
