Donner was one of the best-known of the hundreds of Elvis impersonators over the last 55 years, & Elvis himself consideded him a fine performer, not a copy-cat imitation. This led to the association with Jarvis to sign him to the Thunder International Label, courtesy of Elvis' blessings. The label ceased to exist with Felton Jarvis' passing in 1980, & Ral Donner himself passed on in 1984.
