Bill Haley & His Comets Signed Record Sleeve Johnny Grande Billy Williamson Dick Richards Marshall Lytle Joey Ambrose Autograph ITEM SOLD
The lower portion of a paper sleeve from a 78 RPM record signed by Bill Haley, Dick Richards, Johnny Grande, Joey Ambrose, Billy Williamson and Marshall Lytle in pencil. Joey Ambrose's first name is only partially visible, he probably signed over the label of the record, which has not survived. This lineup was the early incarnation of the Comets, at the time that "Rock Around The Clock" was recorded. Lytle, Richards and Ambrose quit the group in 1955. The signatures are believed to have been obtained at the music store of guitarist Harry Volpe. Harry's guitar center was on West 48th Street in New York. He also had a recording studio in Jackson Heights, Queens.
