THE SMITHS Proof artwork for CD singles (Super rare 1988 UK unfolded uncut paper printer proof artwork for the original ROUGH TRADE issue CD singles, featuring full artwork for four singles across one sheet measuring 18″ x 25″. Of particular note is the inclusion of the Headmaster Ritual artwork which used an image of Viv Nicholson without her consent resulting in the single being hastily withdrawn [all copies were subsequently destroyed]. Needless to say this is an incredible rarity that would take pride of place in any Smiths collection and would look stunning framed! More info here
THE WHO Sell Out (Rare 1967 UK 13-track mono LP, a markedly different mix to the stereo edition [vastly superior to our ears], housed in the iconic fully laminated picture sleeve. The sleeve has nice crisp laminate & rich colours, with a perfectly legible pinched spine & off-white print. There are a few light creases to the laminate with age but nothing excessive, more info here
