The Southern Rock & Soul Auction - March 14 - 22, 2015
Backstage Auctions is proud to present a truly historic southern rock and soul memorabilia auction showcasing decades of collectibles featuring Otis Redding, Percy Sledge, Etta James, Allman Brothers Band, Duane & Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, Butch Trucks, Chuck Leavell, Sea Level, Kingfish, Elvin Bishop, Dixie Dregs, Charlie Daniels Band, Marshall Tucker Band, Outlaws, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Wet Willie, Stillwater, Alex & Livingston Taylor and many more! These artists are just the headliners, but there is quite a bit of memorabilia from other known musicians!
This is nothing short of a museum collection. With well over 1,000 recording reels and in excess of 100 bankers' boxes filled with original documents, photos, handwritten letters and so on, it is safe to say this is a 'once-in-a-generation' type collection.
Among the highlights are signed ephemera by Otis Redding and Duane Allman, handwritten notes and letters by Etta James and Dickey Betts, huge lots of rare Marshall Tucker and Elvin Bishop photos, exceptionally detailed touring history documents on Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers Band, Percy Sledge's fan mail...and that is just a tip of all the ephemera.
The recordings are just as historic and include pre-Allman Brothers tapes from the Hour Glass and Allman Joy days, solo recordings of the Allman Brothers members, famous and aspiring Southern Rock heroes and legends from Lynyrd Skynyrd and Marshall Tucker to Grinderswitch and Stillwater, as well as recordings by Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, John Hiatt, Corky Laing, Doug Kershaw, Dr. John and many others.
The online auction starts March 14th and will run through March 22nd. Register today for your All Access VIP Auction Pass.
We look forward to seeing you at the auction block!
