Tommy James signs

Young and naïve Tommy James signs a contract of exclusive management in 1966 (manager Leonard Stogel to the left). Tommy James’ relationship with Roulette ended up in the beginning of the ‘70s with a stunning 40-million-dollar royalty deficit for him (multiply that number by six to get an idea of what this is worth in 2017). He was partly compensated first long after when Rhino had acquired the rights to Roulette’s catalogue in 1989. Morris Levy (right) was a relentless “business man” involved with the Mafia as Richard Carlin’s book “Godfather of the Music Business: Morris Levy” (2016) explains in detail.
