More often than not, those who spend a lifetime in the record industry will acquire a wide range of weird, wonderful and unusual memorabilia from the artists they worked with. That, along with items produced by artists and labels for general sale, makes up a lot of the memorabilia we come across here, and you could find something for your collection that you didn’t know existed before.
Check out these three hand-selected highlights below, and for our full range of what we have to offer head to eil.com
TIN MACHINE Live (Extremely rare 1989 UK FULLY AUTOGRAPHED EMI 8-page 11″ x 8½” newspaper style tour programme which unfolds twice to reveal a superb 22″ x 17″ montage of black & white photographs of David and the band. The front cover shows a small amount of light discolouration/staining and has been signed by David Bowie, Reeves Gabrels, Tony Fox Sales and Hunt Sales in black and blue marker pen. This also comes with a ticket stub for the gig at the Forum, West Lothian on 3rdJuly 1989 – this looks stunning and deserves to be framed & displayed).
THIN LIZZY Thunder And Lightning (Rare Autographed Official 1983 UK twenty eight page 13″ x 9½” souvenir programme for their European tour, including tour personnel, merchandise and photogaphs & information on support band Mamas Boys. This copy also includes an intact 22″ x 34″ fold-out colour poster. This example displays some light wear to the cover and the poster is still attached by the original staples so remains unopened. This has been boldly signed by the late great PhilLynott on his own page in a blue point pen, and by the three members of the support act, the Mama’s Boys, Pat, John and Tommy McManus on the page at the back dedicated to the band all in blue point pen. A stunning item and must have for any Phil or Thin Lizzy band!).
KATE BUSH Kate Bush (Rare 1979 UK 12-page colour tour programme, features stunning pictures of Kate with facsimile hand-written letter on the front cover, three untorn colour postcards of Kate on stage, five lilac/white tour flyers, and a bonus 8″x10″ black and white photograph of Kate with facsimile signature. All presented in a custom A4 textured colour picture folder with stylised portrait of Kate on the front and back, plus tour dates and Kate picture inside. Aside from some veryminor discolouration on the inside of the folder, the contents of this copy are in superb condition and it has miraculously survived 40+ years in the wild. A great collectors item that deserves a place in any serious Kate Bush collection).
