It’s strange to think that out there in the world there are U2 branded disco balls, miniature toy cars emblazoned with Madonna’s logo, or even prophylactics from dutch metal band, Hammerfall. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the memorabilia that record companies have produced to help promote artists on their roster, and if you are looking for that interesting piece to add to your collection then you have come to the right place.
We’ve picked out a few of the rare and interesting highlights we have in stock, and you can find the full catalogue of what’s available over at eil.com
NIRVANA 3rd April 1994 (Scarce original 1994 UK unused ticket for the cancelled concert on 3rd April 1994 at Brixton Academy in London, a light blue coloured ticket with ‘Academy’ logo printed on the background, with hologram (intact) along the serrated edge, also features concert details all printed in black. The number on both portions is 00117 with barcode. The ticket is intact and still in great condition for an item now over 25 years old!).
DEACON BLUE To Be Here Someday (Fantastic 2021 Deluxe Limited Edition Boxset comprising the 446-page hardback book which features extensive interviews with Deacon Blue as well as key members of their crew over the past 35 years along with fans’ memories of gigs, singles and albums. Housed inside the silver-metallic debossed 13″ x 10″ x 2″ two-piece boxset which has minimal wear [the ribbon has unfortunately come apart from the box!] but comes complete with a Bonus 7″ which includes both the never before released, demo recording of ‘Dignity’ which got the band signed, together within a wonderful live version recorded in 2006 at the Hammersmith Apollo [both on vinyl for the first time]. Additionally, there is also a wonderful collection of paper extras curated specially by the band including artwork, posters, replica tickets, a VIP laminate, individually hand-numbered certificate plus a facsimile signed setlist from the band’s emotional swansong on 20th May 1994, with each member of the original line-up, including the late Graeme Kelling, dedicating a message to Ricky after what everyone thought would be the last-ever show! This strictly limited boxset sold out upon its release and is now hard to find!).
LED ZEPPELIN / PINK FLOYD Bath Festival Of Blues & Progressive Music (Very rare original 1970 UK 42-page UK programme for their second on the bill performance at the festival on 28th June, in between Frank Zappa & the headliners for Sunday, Jefferson Airplane. The programme has a one-page section on the band, along with info & pictures on the other bands appearing over the two days – Pink Floyd headlined Saturday. A wonderful piece of history in an Excellent condition, with just afew areas of light creasing & edge scuffing, and a tear to the bottom right corner on the cover, and some pen marks throughout next to what looks like albums the previous owner bought. For being an over fifty year old item made from paper, this has survived the rigors of time really well).
