Amount RCA made/Elvis lost
When in 1973 the Col. sold the rights to future royalties of Elvis's back catalogue(73 on back)anyone know or have an educated guess on how much RCA has reaped since then from this deal and also what Elvis and his estate lost? It has to be a lot of money way above the $5,000,000 or so they got. Some experts say this was one of the worst deals in entertainment history.
On this same subject when they put out an album of all alternate cuts or a mix of previously released and alternates, are these considered back catalogue, or are they not part of the deal since the alternates cuts were "never issued before 73"
