"Thanks! So he did sign stuff for fans using just his two initials, JM. Interesting also that he took time to personalize the paper, yet did the seemingly rushed looping initials. "

"Yes and no. With the initials on the cover the value is about halved. I was working on three copies when I noticed the initials. One is an Allentown/Witmark 1st stereo pressing. It looks G+ and plays VG>VG+. I am going to put that back in this…"

"Maybe I may be mistaken but wouldn't this album still have a decent collectible value? Obviously, I don't know a thing about collecting old vinyl."

"Thank-you! I had no idea Jim’s autographed LPs are almost non-existent.  After doing some reading on this forum, I also learned that authentications of autographs is far from reliable. And apparently it’s not just due to the ability…"

"There aren't any known copies of the debut album that have been signed by Jim. There's only one copy each of Morrison Hotel and Waiting For the Sun, both of which are signed "JMorrison.""

"I agree that it doesn't appear to be his writing. It looks like someone chose to label the image with Jim's initials."

"This is clearly not authentic in my opinion as neither letter resembles the way Jim wrote is J's or his M's in his signature and/or his writings."

"I dont think its real. I dont think Jim typically did that,  nor do I think that is his hand. As to why just initials, that would be much easier to do than the whole shebang!  Just my two cents. Wait and see what Ballroom has to say is my…"

Hi, long time record seller here and new to this forum. I spent a couple hours reading the Morrison threads here and found the discussions very interesting. You all do not hesitate to call them as you see them. Well, this is the 2nd time this year I have come across an unexpected signature on an LP.
