    "When I left RCA, supposedly I owed them $3 300. Back then when you signed the contract they paid for your sessions and expenses. But when the royalties started comin' in, they took everything off the top. I wasn't even aware that this Janis and Elvis record even existed until I was contacted by Edward Bayes from Millersville, Maryland. He had looked me up and invited me to his house to be on the Larry Angelo show, a local show in Baltimore. That was the first time I had seen the disc. I started makin' inquiries and the way I understand it, they released this disc in South Africa to try to recoup the money. It was released on a Friday and by Saturday afternoon, Colonel Tom had somehow gotten word and called RCA and made 'em pull it. Because #1: NOBODY performs with Elvis. #2. It was called "Janis and Elvis" and not "Elvis and Janis". I met a man in Hamburg, Germany who paid $2 700 for a mint copy. It's so rare because it was only on the market Friday and maybe half a day on Saturday (in South Africa only). That's the only ones that exist. RCA has re-released it legitimately in France a few years ago. It was bootlegged here in the States" [Janis Martin]
