thumbnail link to original poster The Jam Sound Affects 'Pow'

THE JAM, SOUND AFFECTS - 1980

Original Polygram promo poster 23 1/2" x 12 3/4".

The band's 5th album introduced a less polished production sound and wider influences (post-Punk, the Beatles) and instrumentation. Demos such as Dead End Street point the way to The Style Council. Touches of psychedelia were reflected in the Pop Art stylings of the cover (based on a BBC sound effects lp) and in the three Roy Lichenstein-styled U.S. promo posters. All three are very scarce - beware repros!

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.

ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN - THE KILLING MOON, 1984

Original Korova/WEA promo poster, 21.5"x17 3/4".

The single became the band's second UK top 10 hit, but achieved perhaps even greater worldwide prominence through the soundtrack of the 2001 film 'Donnie Darko'. Scarce.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.


thumbnail link to original Elektra hanging display Queen News of the World

QUEEN - NEWS OF THE WORLD, 1977

Original Elektra hanging display, 9"x20".
Art by Frank Kelly Freas.

Amazing double-sided in-store hanging mobile. The artwork was a reworking by the acclaimed Science Fiction and NASA artist of his famous October 1953 Astounding Science Fiction cover. The album and lead single 'We Are The Champions' were hugely succesful.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.

ELTON JOHN - TUMBLEWEED CONNECTION, 1970

Original UNI/MAC promo poster, 30"x20".

Scarce original poster for one of the real highpoints of Elton and Bernie Taupin's classic early period. The western theme of the lyrics carried over to the lp and poster designs. Card stock.

SUPERTRAMP - BREAKFAST IN AMERICA, 1979

Original A&M promo poster, 36"x24".
Art direction and cover concept Mike Doud, design by Mick Heggarty, photography Aaron Rapoport.

Breakfast in America, with its memorable sleeve, was a huge international hit for the band. Mike Doud had been Peter Corriston's collaborator on the sleeve for Led Zeppelin's Physical Grafitti. Their design for the album won Heggarty and Doud a Grammy award.

thumbnail link to original 1971 Rolling Stones UK Tour poster

THE ROLLING STONES - UK TOUR, 1971

Original tour poster, 20"x30".
Art by John Pasche.

Appropriately known as the "Good-Bye Britain Tour", this was their first proper UK tour since 1966, launched just before their disastrous tax affairs forced them into the two year exile that was to result in the recording of 'Exile On Main Street'.
Beware reproductions.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.


thumbnail link to original 1980 The Selecter Three Minute Hero 2 Tone Records promo poster

THE SELECTER -THREE MINUTE HERO, 1980

Original 2 Tone promo poster, 10"x17"
Design by David Storey and John Sims.

Like Morrissey for the Smiths, Jerry Dammers maintained an intense obsession to detail over the look and design of 2 Tone's output. David Storey is now a highly regarded fine artist. Original 2 Tone poster material is hard to find.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.


thumbnail link to original 1981 A&M promo poster The Human League Dare

THE HUMAN LEAGUE - DARE, 1981

Original A&M promo poster, 35"x23".
Design Ken Ansell, photography Brian Aris.

'Dare' was the first really successful mixing of electronic sounds with pure pop and was a huge, almost inescapable, hit in the UK and the US. It effectively marked the end of post-Punk experimentalism and waved ashore the on-coming tidal wave of 80's pop.

SOLD - please inquire if you'd like us to source this for you.

HAWKWIND - WARRIOR ON THE EDGE OF TIME, 1975

Original ATCO promo poster, 20"x35".
Complete or partial art by Barney Bubbles.

Barney Bubbles, arguably the finest British designer in music of his generation, contributed elements to the inner sleeve artwork of the elaborately packaged album. The lp cover (at bottom) is not by Bubbles but the boat and sun design employed here along with the flower and leaf framing, not present on the lp, almost certainly are.
