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
THE DAMNED Disciples Song Book (Rare 1977 UK first issue mail-order only 28-page illustrated A4 magazine style songbook with ‘Printed by Zigzag’ text on inner front page. Includes the lyrics from the debut album, Stretcher Case and Sick Of Being Sick, along with many more titbits, including some great passport style photos of the chaps. The cover has some minor creasing, otherwise this copy remains in lovely near ‘as new’ condition, which is all but amazing for 45 year old paper goodsin general, but even more so for 45 year old Damned memorabilia!).

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).
