Examples from this week's sales additions are listed below.:

 

The Van Dykes - 1967 performance contract (Stag Club, Durham, North Carolina).

From the Walden Artists and Promotions estate. Performance booking contract (AGVA # 107626) for a June 1967 appearance at the Stag Club, Durham, North Carolina. Outlines the artist fees, deposit, terms and conditions, and rehearsal times. The appearance is 5 months before their recording of "Save My Love For A Rainy Day" for Mala.

This item consists of the original contract, and 3 office carbon copies.The document is in very good condition, with no tears or defacement and minimal creasing.

 

Mary Wells - 1972 booking contract (Eldorado Club, Huntsville, Alabama).

From the Walden Artists and Promotions / Paragon estate. Performance booking contract for a September 1972 appearance at the Eldorado Club, Huntsville, Alabama. This booking was ultimately cancelled (stamped as such) but of historical significance reflecting the artist fees, terms and conditions. Reference on the contract is made to Cecil Womack, her then-husband and manager during the post Motown, post Atco years. The contract is dated around the time of Motown's re-release of "My Guy" in the UK. This revived her career briefly (including an appearance on Top of the Pops) but at the same time soon marked a temporary withdrawal from performing to concentrate on her family. 

This package contains original contract plus five office carbon copies, six deposit rider copies, and a customer handwritten memo stating  "...money will be telegram(med) to you Sept 1st 1972….please have Mary there on 6 September in plenty time for rehearsal..."  Documents are in very good condition for age, with minimal creasing and no tears.

 

Joe Simon - 1966 performance contract (Paramont Club, Augusta, Georgia). Sound Stage 7 era.

From the Walden Artists and Promotions estate. Performance booking contract for a short run of June 1966 appearances at the Paramount Country Club, Augusta, Georgia. The contract outlines the artist fees, terms and conditions. It is from his Sound Stage 7 period, dated one month after the release  of "Long Hot Summer" and a few months before "Travelin' man".

This item consists of the original contract (AGVA #96232) and a small rider stapled to the form, referring to the need for the artist to report before the booking for radio interview.

The document is in very good condition, with minimal creasing and no tear or defacements
