We’ve this extremely rare original 1974 UK 16-page comic book style tour programme with a superb colour cover. Apart from a small amount of the front cover missing in the bottom right corner & a small split in the top left, this copy is in excellent condition with just a few signs of age, as you would expect from an item of this age. Amazingly this copy also comes with an original complete ticket, not just a stub, for the show on the 4th November 1974 at Usher Hall in Edingurgh.

This would make a magnificent addition to any self respecting Pink Floyd collection and a fabulous Christmas present, don’t you think? What’s on your wish list?

The comic style, size & paper makes this item extraordinarily, although this copy isn’t mint, it is still a fantastic copy.

It opens with a breakdown of the crew & contributors to the comic, these include :

Hipgnosis & Nick Mason
Gerald Scarfe
Paul Stubbs
Joe Petagno
Colin Elgie
Richard Evans
Dave Gale

Then follow the comic strips themselves :-

‘Rog Of The Rovers’
‘Captain Mason R.N.’
‘Rich Right’
& ‘The Exploits Of Dave Derring’

There is also a quiz page, a ‘life lines’ biog page & a lyric page, all topped off with an amazing Gerald Scarfe centrefold.

The lyric page is especially interesting as the lyrics listed are for :-

Shine On You Crazy Diamond – Released the following year on ‘Wish You Were Here’
Raving & Drooling – Finally radically altered & released on ‘Animals’ as ‘Sheep’
Gotta Be Crazy – Finally radically altered & also released on ‘Animals’ as ‘Dogs’

The comic itself is in excellent condition, there is some light discolouration, as mentioned above there is a small split at the top or the spine, and a small amount of paper lose to the bottom right corner. But is still a really nice example.

The ticket is amazing, it is complete, the original owner either never went to the show or was lucky not to have his ticket seperated, and apart from some light signs of age is stunning
