James Brown Apollo Notes (Others in Smithsonian)

James Brown Apollo Notes (Others in Smithsonian)

Lot # 4A (Sale Order: 6 of 315)

James Brown Apollo Theater Show Notes in Museum Quality Framed Presentation (Only Others Known in Existance in Archives Center of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Ame...morerican History) - This amazing piece contains (4) note cards with show notes from James Brown & The Flames performances at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York. The notes begin on 12/11/1959, and end on 10/25-30/1974. The Apollo Theater was ran by the Schiffman family from 1934 to 1976, and In 1946, Frank Schiffman began keeping 5"x 8" index cards on each and every act he hired. It is said that there are some 1200 of these cards, including acts such as Ella Fitzgerald, Chuck Berry, Diana Ross, and others. These show notes have never been previously offered at auction, as the only others known in existance are in the "Frank Schiffman Apollo Theatre Collection" in the Archives Center of the Smithsonian?s National Museum of American History. Each card lists the opening night of the booking (most bookings were for one week), the amount each was act was paid, and most interesting of all, Schiffman?s pithy comments on the act?s drawing power, polish, affordability, freshness or staleness, reception, attitude, and cooperativeness with management. All the comments are typewritten, making the cards completely legible and easy to read. The cards have notes such as "Has strange ideas for presenting himself but goes well with audience. Has improved in the costume department", "collapsed sat. midnight but continued performance", and "the usual dynamo, watered down a bit by lack of business plus tendency to over talk. Understandable but his people come to hear him sing and see him dance." This is a stunning chance to own a piece of American history, that truly belongs in a museum, as few American stages have produced as many music and comedic legends as Harlem?s landmark Apollo Theater. The cards are beautifully presented in a museum quality presentation, with a burgundy matting and textured wooden frame with gilt gold accents. The presentation also has a black and white photo of the Apollo marquee, as well as a gold toned plaque that reads, "James Brown at The Apollo Theater". The presentation measures 47"L x 21.5"W.

Lot # 9A (Sale Order: 23 of 315)

1950's Quinn Epperly "Last Last Fuel Injection Special" 1950's Indy Race Car Made for Bill Vukovich (The year he died in the Indy 500 Race) Currently on Exhibit in a Museum - "The Last Fuel injection Special" - This car was built by Quinn Epperly for Bill Vukovich to race in the infamous Indy 500 race. This car was decades ahead of its time structure and technology wise. The car was the first of its kind to adopt aerodynamic principals. This project was led by Quinn Epperly, and this car was being built with the idea in mind that it would be Bill Vukovich's THIRD Indy 500 victory, and that this car would win the race with him. Unfortunately, this car was not finished in time to be raced, and that year Bill Vukovich died during the race in a fatal crash. Please read the car specs (see photos). This car is not only an iconic piece of race history, but this vehicle is actually thought of as "The car that could have saved Bill Vukovich's Life." This vehicle has been on exhibit in a museum for over 10 years, and is stored indoors. The vehicle is pristine, and belongs on exhibit, in a premier collection. The design of this car, the masterminds that built it and the history behind it make this car a once in a lifetime investment opportunity. You will never find another Indy 500 race car with this kind of history, and you most certainly will never be presented with the opportunity to buy one again. Private (scheduled) inspections are available by emailing: Brigitte@gwsauctions.com. MORE PICTURES CLICK HERE...more
