About this Item

This legendary R & B tenor hit the charts in the mid-50s with the Drifters and such hits as "Money Honey," "Such a Night" and "Honey Love" before going solo. ALS, 1p, 8½" X 11", New Rochelle, NY, 1958 January 2. Addressed to Donald. Very good. Yellowed tape stain at each corner and one (1¼") at each side. On delightfully corny letterhead of "Clyde McPhatter's Tune Shop," this rare letter was written shortly after his split from the Drifters and the height of his fame as a soloist. A gracious letter to an admirer, reading in part: "Hope that you will like the little verse, that I am sending you. Very sorry that I don't have any pictures at this time, hope when you write again I'll have some on hand. So until then be good." Bold full signature. The alcoholic McPhatter died of a heart attack at age 39, making his autograph material quite uncommon. Bookseller Inventory # 17516
