THE ROLLING STONES - AMERICAN TOUR, 1972

Original promo poster, 37.5"x25".
Art by John Pasche.

The third of John Pasche's three Art Deco-inspired tour posters for the band, then at their absolute peak, touring the recently released 'Exile On Main Street'.

Note: This is the most repro'd of all the classic John Pasche posters and genuine originals, such as this example, are both hard to identify and scarce.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - ODEON HAMMERSMITH, 1975.

Original concert poster, 31" x 41"

Original poster for Springsteen and the E-Street band's London debut. The 18th November date was to become one of the most celebrated concerts ever seen in the UK. In 2005, Springsteen commented: "It was the show that put us on the map in England and began a long and beautiful relationship with our fans overseas."
The poster is very rare.

ELVIS COSTELLO - MY AIM IS TRUE, 1977.

Original STIFF Records promo poster, 20"x30"
Photography by Keith Morris.

The cover shot on Costello's first album, the pose, jacket and glasses of a twisted Buddy Holly, had an immediate impact and established one of the most distinctive identities of the time.

'Alison', from the album, was an instant classic.

T.REX - THE CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION, 1972.

Original EMI promo poster, 16"x11.5"

Scarce poster for one of the classic T Rex line up's last major hits. It reached number 2 in September 1972.

THE BEATLES - MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR, 1974.

Original Mystical Films promo poster, 17.5"x11"
Artwork by Peter Rauch.

The original 1967 BBC broadcast's poor reception put off any cinema release until 1974, when it enjoyed a limited showing in America. This is bourne out by the small poster format, which was used in the U.S. for independent and art house releases.


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



KRAFTWERK - RADIO-ACTIVITY, 1975.

Original Capitol promo poster, 36"x24.5".
Radio artwork by Emil Schult.

After the success of Autobahn, Kraftwerk built up their Düsseldorf Kling Klang studio into a self-contained (and secretive) production centre. Cutting loose from producer Conny Plank and any further use of traditional instruments, their line-up settled, the stage was set for a musical revolution.
Vintage Kraftwerk posters are very scarce.

GENESIS - A TRICK OF THE TAIL, 1976
