Jimi Hendrix owned and worn 'gypsy style' vest leads Heritage Auctions entertainment and music event
Jimi Hendrix owned and worn gypsy-style vest from the Collection of Stevens Weiss, Hendrix's Lawyer. Estimate: $10,000 - up.

DALLAS, TX.- A stunning Jimi Hendrix owned and worn gypsy-style vest, a gift to Stevens Weiss, Hendrix’s attorney and good friend, is expected to bring more than $15,000 as the lead music memorabilia lot in Heritage Auctions’ Entertainment & Music Memorabilia Signature® Auction on Dec. 14.

The heavyweight brown velvet and gold silk brocade vest with two hook and loop-style closures, several pockets and numerous tiny mirror appliqués among detailed and decorative stitching was worn by Hendrix in February 1969 (and almost certainly previous to that) and is expected to bring $15,000+.

“Weiss was in London for Hendrix’s Royal Albert Hall concerts,” said Garry Shrum, Consignment Director at Heritage Auctions, “and, backstage before one of the two shows, he mentioned to Hendrix how much he liked this vest. Hendrix immediately took it off and handed to him as a gift.”

Rock and Roll history continues with an Elvis Presley (and other stars) used KWKH Shure Microphone, 1955-1975, the very mic used on Dec. 15, 1956, by Hayride announcer Horace Logan when he first coined the phrase: “Elvis has left the building.” It is estimated at $10,000+.

The auction has a particularly deep lineup of choice Beatles memorabilia, much of which is already attracting significant collector buzz. A John Lennon signed “Bag One” leather case and original Erotic #2 lithograph #181/300 (1970), one of John's controversial set of 14 issued in 1970, is expected to bring $7,000+. A Beatles Yesterday And Today very rare First State “Butcher Cover” LP (Capitol T2553, 1966) is estimated at $4,000+ and a Beatles “The White Album” LP (Apple 101, 1968)with a very low number, A0000023, once belonging to Paul McCartney's 1960s girlfriend, Jane Asher, should bring more than $2,500.

Further highlights include, but are not limited to:

Conway Twitty's Owned and Played 1957 Gretsch Roundup 6130 Solid Body Electric Guitar with a Custom Hand-Tooled Leather Cover and Original Leather Strap: Twitty's first Rock and Roll guitar, used both in the studio and on stage during his early years as a Pop and Rock star. Estimate: $20,000+.

Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy RIAA Gold Record Award (Atlantic 7255, 1973): The supergroup's fifth album became their third #1 Billboard Top Pop Albums chart-topper. This one was awarded to Stevens Weiss, the group's attorney "To Commemorate The Sale Of More Than One Million Dollars Worth..." of the album. From the Steven Weiss Archive. REQUIRES THIRD PARTY SHIPPING. Estimate: $1,800+.

Rolling Stones Let It Bleed Rarest Variant Pressing (London NPS-4, 1969): Most Rolling Stoners rate Let It Bleed as one of the best albums of the band's long and storied career. But the big deal with this particular copy is it's a multi-colored vinyl pressing, a very exclusive offering originally intended just for a select few execs of the London Records label. Heritage is aware of only one other copy having ever been offered. Estimate: $10,000+.

Buddy Holly Rare Acetate – "Gotta Roll"/ "I Don't Care Anymore" (Soundcraft, 1955): Months before Decca signed the teenage Buddy Holly to a contract [after he'd been "discovered" when he opened for Elvis Presley in an October, 1955 Lubbock show], and 1½ years before Holly's first historic recording s at Norman Petty's studio in Clovis, New Mexico, he went into the Nesman Studios in Wichita Falls, Texas with his friends Bob Montgomery and Larry Welborn and recorded the tunes on this two-sided 78 rpm acetate. From the Maria Elena Holly Collection of Buddy Holly Memorabilia. Estimate: $4,000+.
