Did you check to see if the sigs were real? They sent out a ton of autopens to people and have yet to admit they were fakes.
Keep buying from them and you will get burned, if you haven't been already... they made it a marketing tactic for a long time telling people they are collectors themselves, pretending to be one of us.. a company that cares about the hobby.. and then they refuse to acknowledge fake Dolly Parton Songtellers and Alicia keys which were proved to be autopen. Its happened with others in the past but would always make things right and accept responsibility. Those days are now over. Their COAs are meaningless. They pretty much only sell bookplate signatures where other stores sell tip-ins.. they have become a joke company compared to what they were years ago. I do not trust them at all. They are dead to me
For the record, The Doobie brothers book I recently received from Premiere was real and not a bookplate (although talkshops were bookplates)
Fair enough. I never said they have turned exclusively to bookplates but the majority of them are.. The Rock and Roll channel at Talkshoplive has had a few issues but at least they are trying to be transparent on here with us every now and then.. Premiere tried but gave up when they refused to answer our questions when we put them on the spot.. Now all they do is lurk on here to monitor this part of their customer base.. keep praising them if you want. Im sure they love customers who will blindly return to them. If you make them feel comfortable so quickly after everything that has happened, nothing will change.. This hobby needs what premiere used to be. Not what they are becoming. A lot of us have been slapped in the face and we just won't fall for it again

Excellent, thank you!
I somehow missed this when first published, and I’ve been searching almost daily for a copy for the last month.
they do look different..especially the dot on the I in loggins..
Nick, it actually looks like your signed page was on top of Marshall's signed page when Kenny signed it. You can see the indentation of your style signature on the page Marshall photographed, including the 'less-than sign' variant dot over the last name. With the bearing down of the pen to cause this imprint, I would say there is likely no chance that these are not hand-signed.
