Monday’s Top Three including John Lennon, Oasis & Bert Jansch

John-Lennon-70th-Birthday-Rem-601076JOHN LENNON 70th Birthday Remasters Series (A wonderful collection of no fewer than thirty two 30cm by 42cm pieces of proof artwork for the remasters series, including the artwork for John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band, Imagine, Some Time In New York City, Mind Games, Walls And Bridges, Rock 'n' Roll, Double Fantasy & Milk And Honey. The artwork also includes proof art for the Gimme Some Truth four CD collection. Of the thirty two, eleven are pristine, but twenty one of them show an element of water staining to some degree and fifteen of those show some paper loss although in only seven cases does this affect the printed artwork. Being proof art, these are often annotated with notes for the subsequent printing and some also have 'Photo Here' blank place markers. Printed onto thick card stock, unlike the digipack bookets themselves, these have otherwise survived in wonderful condition with bright colours and pure white whites. Given the sheer quantity offered here, there is a significant proportion of the printed 5½" by 5" printed areas that are completely unaffected by the historical water, which appears to have snuck up on one corner of the unsorted pile some time in the past. What you choose to do with these and how you choose to file or display them really depends on you, but none of the main cover artwork appears affected, although some do have hand annotations. A remarkable set to commemorate the equally remarkable solo career of one of the most remarkable songwriters to ever have blessed this third stone from the sun)


OASIS Stop The Clocks (ULTRA RARE 2006 UK promotional-only 'divers' style chunky watch with silver toned casing and watch face featuring the dartboard image taken from 'Stop The Clock' album artwork. The black fabric strap has a rubberised velco fastening and features a black & white 'Oasis' logo just below the watch face. A very limited number of these were manufactured – rumoured to be only 20/25 made! This scarce promo watch must be coolest way to keep time)


BERT JANSCH & JOHN RENBOURN Bert & John (Scarce 1966 UK 12-track mono vinyl LP of beautiful interlocking steel-string guitar by the duo, on the rough textured Transatlantic label with black & purple lettering on white, fully laminated picture sleeve. Both the sleeve & vinyl are in near mint condition. A stunning condition copy! TRA144)
