What is an autograph?
From Wikipedia, an autograph is a person’s own handwriting or signature. The word autograph comes from Ancient Greek (αὐτός, autós, “self” and γράφω, gráphō, “write”), and can mean more specifically a manuscript written by the author of its content, or a celebrity’s handwritten signature.

FISH Sushi – Autographed 1994 UK 20-track live 2-CD album, with discs made in Austria, boldly & clearly signed in black marker pen across the front of the picture sleeve not only by the man himself but along with frequent live go-to musicians David Stewart & Steve Vantsis [both of the band Tilt] who have collaborated with Fish for well over 20 years. Featuring the set recorded at the Vredenburg Hall in Utrecht, also includes cover versions of Pink Floyd’s Fearless, Alex Harvey’sBoston Tea Party, T. Rex’s Jeepster & David Bowie’s 5 Years, a pretty scarce original live album, all the more appetizing for the collector’s palette with the striking signatures on display!
THE CRICKETS Three Piece – 1987 French pressed UK 10-track vinyl LP from Jerry Allison & Joe B. Mauldin together with Gordon Payne. The glossy picture sleeve is fully AUTOGRAPHED by the trio in black marker pen on the front and has the lyrics printed on the reverse while the vinyl is remarkably ‘as new’!
TOY Toy – Autographed Sealed 2012 UK Rough Trade Store Exclusive limited edition 12-track 2-LP set, the eponymous debut album by the London-based band, along with the bonus BBC Sessions 6-track CDEP, housed in a gatefold picture sleeve with the bonus EP in a separate card wallet sleeve, and remains factory sealed together in the double stickered shrink. This also comes with an extra sleeve which has been fully signed by Tom Dougall, Dominic O’Dair, Alejandra Diez, Maxim Barron and Charlie Salvidge across the inner spread all in silver pen, held together in a record company stickered bag.
THE HORRORS Luminous – Fully Autographed 2014 UK limited edition 10-track double vinyl LP, including the singles So Now You Know & I See You, housed in the single-pocket picture sleeve with credit printed inner. The sleeve displays just light wear and the vinyl remains in a ‘near as new’ condition. This has been fully signed by Faris Badwan, Tom Cowan, Joshua Hayward, Joe Spurgeon and Rhys Webb across the front in a silver marker pen across the front of the sleeve, looks stunning and ideal for framing.
SPRIGUNS Jack With A Feather – Very, very rare original 1975 UK 11-track vinyl LP pressed in tiny quantities on the cult Alida Star Recordings label, thin card picture sleeve which has been autographed by the band. This debut long playerhas attained legendary status in folk & psych circles with its blend of traditional instrumentation, electric guitar and bass and the haunting voice of singer/guitarist Mandy Morton. It’s a classic progressive folk album that transcends the genre, wonderful playing throughout with a distinct acid/wicker folk vibe on key tracks. This wonderful collector’s copy has been signed by the band in blue pen next to their respective images on the front (although we think Tom Ling signs the Chris Russon picture as Chris had left by the time the album was released), in the centre there is the unique dedication “To Martin wot is very good. Luv Spiggles”. Please see more here.
