Elvis Recorded With The Platters?: Here's a fascinating news story spotted by EIN contributor Brian Quinn - that is unfortunately not true.
>>>> "ValCom, Inc. reported a big gain in quarterly earnings when the media and entertainment company disclosed the financial results for the 2nd quarter of its financial year.
A key statistic in the 2nd quarter 2011 financial data is the company's total assets which grew over 200% from September 2010 to over $24 million.
ValCom expects a great surge in revenues from its content library. The company has over 6,000 video and audio titles in the library. In 1st quarter 2011, an appraisal was conducted by DOS Broadcast and Appraisal Services to determine an accurate value of the content owned by the company. DOS has estimated that the value of the library exceeds $128 million. The library contains rare and unique video and audio content including 13 master recordings of Elvis Presley with The Platters; masters from Ike & Tina Turner before they were stars; and a very rare 3 Stooges film. The library also contains films starring the top names in Hollywood like Denzel Washington, Anthony Hopkins, Robert DiNiro, Jodi Foster, Russell Crowe and Mel Gibson."
EIN notes that while Elvis is said to have sung some Platters songs between recordings at the 1976 Jungle Room Sessions - no recordings exist. Elvis also sang The Platters 'Only You' in concert in his early 1950 concerts.
