The Stars Salute Dr. Martin Luther King album signed on the back cover in blue ballpoint, "Martin Luther King, Jr." Also signed on the front cover in felt tip by Harry Belafonte and Sammy Davis, Jr., both of whom performed on the album.

Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s work in the name of equality and freedom, this unique compilation album features tracks by prominent black artists who were fellow advocates for civil rights. Released shortly after King's receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize, the songs capture the power of his message—including 'Some Day' by Louis Armstrong, 'My Lord What a Mornin'' by Harry Belafonte, 'Choose' by Sammy Davis, Jr., and 'Now' by Lena Horne. As an extraordinarily rare, oversized format signed by King and two of his iconic fellow activists, this is a remarkable piece of history.
