ROGER WATERS The Wall Live (Official 2011 UK 52-page 14″ x 8″ tour programme featuring lots of great images images taken from the stage show, mini biographies for band members and lyrics. With a great picture cover plus a die-cut card slipcase).
ROXY MUSIC / VARIOUS Crystal Palace Bowl Garden Party IV (1972 UK sixteen page programme for the event that took place in front of 6,000 excited fans on Saturday 29th July that year. The event was headlined by Arlo Guthrie, with Osibisa, EdgarWinter, Stone The Crows & Loggins And Messina all taking part. The event, like that the previous year, used Pink Floyd’s adventurous sound system. Roxy were, in fact, the second band on the bill, arriving onstage at a very un-Musician like 12:30PM & performing for an hour. This was the period when their first album was beginning to create ripples, but before they became the chart topping band of the mid to late seventies. Not a bad line-up for your £1.50! The programme itself has an amazing & fragile die cut cover, that remains untorn after almost fifty years, which is nothing short of a miracle. In fact, apart from a little edge scuffing and a couple of pen marks on the back, this copy remains very close to how it would have been had you bought it on the day. An amazing artifact!).
LED ZEPPELIN Earl’s Court 75 (Rare original 1975 UK 16 page concert programme for the legendary shows at Earl’s Court, measuring 8″ x 11½” in size featuring the ‘The Led Zeppelin Story’, pages dedicated to each band member & a great ‘PsysicalRocket’ steam engine cover image. Apart from a few light creases to the cover and one or two minor cosmetic surface scuffs, this example remains in excellent condition with no rips, tears or writing, nice copy of this now over forty five year old item!).
