thumbnail link to original 1973 Rolling Stones promo poster Goat's Head Soup, veiled Jagger image

THE ROLLING STONES, GOATS HEAD SOUP, 1973

Original promo poster, 24"x24"
Design Ray Lawrence. Photography David Bailey.

The original concepts for the album's design by Hipgnosis were rejected and Jagger instead returned to Decca-era stalwart David Bailey. Bailey's image of a veiled Jagger was quirkily inspired by Katherine Hepburn in 'The African Queen', but the ghostly images of the band tied in perfectly with the voodoo tinge of the album's Jamaica-recorded opening track.

£425.00 conservation framed.


thumbnail link to original 1973 Rolling Stones promo poster Goat's Head Soup, Goat in pot image

THE ROLLING STONES, GOATS HEAD SOUP, 1973

Original promo poster, 24"x24"
Design & art direction John Pasche, photography Phil Jude.

Infamous culinary masterpiece from the end of the band's greatest period. Recorded in Jamaica, Bill Wyman remembers: "We would be driven to Byron Lee's studio through downtown Kingston. Two large, double gates guarded by the man with the shotgun would open and let us in and then close behind us."

£395.00 conservation framed.

Two original card stock Epic/Legacy Records promo posters, each 12 1/4"x12 1/4".
Design by Josh Cheuse. Photography (band) Penny Smith, (Broadway) Bob Gruen.

Great design for the well received 64 track box set compilation. 'Clash on Broadway' strongly reaffirmed the band's impact and legacy after the unsatisfactory coda of 'Cut the Crap' only a few years previously.

£180.00 conservation framed.

thumbnail link to original Stiff poster proof Elvis Costello Get Happy Barney Bubbles design

ELVIS COSTELLO - GET HAPPY, 1980

Original F-Beat poster proof, 31"x21".
Art and design by Barney Bubbles.

'Get Happy' was the first album release on manager Jake Riviera's new label F-Beat, which he set up after Costello's split from Radar. Barney Bubbles, eschewing credits for his designs, instead placed his VAT number in tiny print; an ironic reference to his perennial financial woes.

Uncommon original proof printing.

Original Pace Minerva poster, 33" x 23.5".

Design by Paul Weller, Simon Halfon.
Photography by Peter Anderson.

Peter Anderson moved from Scotland to London in 1980 and soon secured regular work for the NME, where he met Paul Weller to shoot the paper's Avengers pastiche 1982 Christmas cover. Both valued a degree of sponteneity and humour, and Weller commissioned Anderson for a photo shoot in February in France - a chilly Boulogne convincingly passing for springtime Paris.

£145.00 conservation framed.


thumbnail link to original US promo poster

SUPERTRAMP - CRISIS? WHAT CRISIS, 1975.

Original US promo display, 24"x 24".
Design Paul Wakefield, Fabio Nicoli and Dick Ward.

Although the album was made under rushed circumstances, it was an accomplished work that built on the band's growing audience. The cover concept was sketched out by Rick Davies during a break in the frustrating recording sessions.

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


thumbnail link to original Blondie poster Autoamerican

BLONDIE - AUTOAMERICAN, 1980

Original Chrysalis promo poster, 38"x20".
Art by Martin Hoffman.

Autoamerican saw Blondie's focus becoming more diffuse, but 'Rapture' was a groundbreaking early Pop-Rap classic.
Martin Hoffman became part of the NASA Art Program in the 1980s, assigned to document five shuttle launches, with special access to restricted areas. These paintings were exhibited at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.

For the artwork, the band were photographed on a rooftop at Broadway and 8th Avenue.

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

thumbnail link to original Rolling Stones poster It's Only Rock'n'Roll

THE ROLLING STONES - IT'S ONLY ROCK'N ROLL, 1974

Original Rolling Stones Records promo poster, 23.5"x16.5".
Art by Guy Peellaert.

Guy Peellaerts' atmospheric paintings of pop culture icons in his 1973 book 'Rock Dreams' made him one of the 70s defining artists. The following year, he designed the album covers for Bowie's 'Diamond Dogs' and The Stones 'It's Only Rock'n Roll'. For the classic lead single poster, Peellaert went full bore with the opening lines "If I could stick my pen in my heart, And spill it all over the stage".

This poster is very hard to come by.

Please inquire.


thumbnail link to original Led Zeppelin press photo

LED ZEPPELIN, 1972

Original Rigby Press Agency press photo, 10"x8".

The band were receiving an award at their suite at the Continental Hyatt House, on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles. Nicknamed the Riot House, the hotel earned a storied place in the history of 1970's rock god excess. The final band interview in 'This is Spinal Tap' was appropriately filmed by its rooftop pool.

£145.00 conservation framed.


thumbnail link to original Rolling Stones Stone Age LP proof

THE ROLLING STONES - STONE AGE, 1971

London Records sleeve proof, 24.5"x13.5"

Rare original 1971 sleeve proof, on the London label for release in Japan. Although later compilations outside of the band's control were of low quality, 'Stone Age' put together an interesting selection of more obscure or not previously released sides from the band's 64-66 archive.

£485.00 conservation framed.


thumbnail link to original U.S. London Calling The Clash poster

THE CLASH - LONDON CALLING, 1979

Original CBS promo poster, 42"x44".

The superb original U.S. poster, a Warhol-inspired take on the famous LP cover. Pennie Smith's shot of Paul Simonon smashing his bass was captured at New York City's Palladium (Smith needed persuading that the shot was acceptable). Ray Lowry's lettering invoked Elvis's debut LP. The ambitious double album threw down the gauntlet to the heavyweights of the past, Dylan, The Beatles, The Stones.

This poster has survived in excellent condition.

Please inquire.


thumbnail link to original flyer The Clash Out of Control

THE CLASH - OUT OF CONTROL, 1984

Original promotional flyer, 6"x8".

After the break up with Mick Jones in September 1983, Strummer and Simonon regrouped with new band members on an extended self-financed tour. That the experiment ended a year later with the Bernie Rhodes-engineered debacle of the Cut The Crap album tends to obscure how revitalised Strummer was in this period. Greil Marcus: "I'd never seen Strummer more exhilarated, or more convincing".

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


thumbnail link to original poster Dark Side of the Moon

PINK FLOYD - DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, 1973

Original Harvest/Capitol promo poster, 36"x24".
Design and photography: Hipgnosis. Illustration: George Hardie for Hipgnosis.
Original in-store promo poster, illustrating the band's previous lp releases. The origin of probably the most famous album sleeve of all time stems from the band's desire to avoid another photographic image in favour of a simpler graphic. Hipgnosis's Aubrey Powell found inspiration in a prism image in a 1950's French book of early colour photography. This is the only original 1973 poster design for the album we've yet encountered.

£485.00 conservation framed.


thumbnail link to original poster Dark Side of the Moon

SEX PISTOLS - FUCK FOREVER, 1986

Original Hamilton exhibition poster, design by Jamie Reid.
26"x38.5".

13 Carlos Place, London W1.
On the back is artwork and text in black & white by Jon Savage & Jon Wozencroft, with illustrations of Jamie's work and his influences.
The original artwork was made in 1978 as a prop for 'The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle' film.

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


thumbnail link to original poster The Who Who Are You

THE WHO - WHO ARE YOU, 1978

Original MCA promo poster, 30"x20".
Photography by Terry O'Neill.
The original line-up's last album, with the classic title track (recalling a night out in Soho with The Sex Pistols' Paul Cook and Steve Jones). Terry O'Neil's shot of the band amidst their speaker stack was taken at Shepperton Studios. The words on Moon's chair proved eerily prescient.

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


thumbnail link to original my Jamaican Guy original Island poster

GRACE JONES - MY JAMAICAN GUY, 1983

Original Island promo poster, 60"x40".
Design by Jean-Paul Goude.

V. scarce large format poster (note: this format of poster was intended for flyposting, so record companies ensured their details were left off).

Jean-Paul Goude: Would you agree that you have always had a problem with authority?
Grace Jones: Yes, definitely.... And I think that is what contributed to my masculinization. I deliberately challenged men's roles. In fact, I survived by taking on both roles.

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


thumbnail link to original Virgin promo poster The Sex Pistols The Great Rock'n'Roll Swindle, American Express withdrawn design

THE SEX PISTOLS - THE GREAT ROCK'N'ROLL SWINDLE, 1979

Original Virgin promo poster, 39.5"x27.5".
Design by Jamie Reid.

Please inquire.


thumbnail link to original Kraftwerk Computer World London tour dates poster 1981 poster

KRAFTWERK - COMPUTER WORLD TOUR, 1981

Original London tour dates poster.

Very scarce; we've only seen this poster once before.

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

KRAFTWERK - THE MAN-MACHINE, 1978

Original Capitol promo poster, 30"x20".
Art direct and lettering Karl Klefisch, photography by Guenter Froehling.
Striking design owing an obvious debt to Soviet Constructivism (El Lissitzky is acknowledged in the credits). The album features two of Kraftwerk's best known tracks, The Model and The Robots. Scarce.

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


thumbnail link to original Roxy Music ATCO promo poster Siren

ROXY MUSIC - SIREN, 1975

Original ATCO promo poster, 19"x26".

The sophisticated shocks of Roxy's early albums were matched by the warped glamour of their famous covers, never more so than on 1975's acclaimed 'Siren', where mermaid Jerry Hall crawls across the rocks of Anglesey's South Stack coast.

This poster rarely survives in such good condition.

Please inquire.


thumbnail link to original Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers promo poster

THE ROLLING STONES - STICKY FINGERS, 1971

Original Rolling Stones Records promo poster, 35"x23".
Photography by David Montgomery.

Sticky Fingers was the band's first release on their own Rolling Stones label (and the first to sport the lips logo), and the first with Mick Taylor fully on board. Like Exile it wasn't entirely well received by contemporary critics; like Exile it's now regarded as the Stones at their absolute peak.

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

thumbnail link to original Grace Jones Island poster Nightclubbing

GRACE JONES - NIGHTCLUBBING, 1981

Original Island Records promo poster, 36"x24".
Design by Jean Paul Goude.

Probably the single most famous image of Grace Jones, Jean Paul Goude's 1981 'Blue-black in black on brown' created as oil paint on cut up photo.
Jean Paul Goude: "Grace was very open. We worked together to create this intimidating character. I mean, she's naturally intimidating anyway...I tried to emphasize that body shape through a sort of minimalist German expressionism, with its games of shadows and its angular shapes."

Please inquire.


thumbnail link to original Grace Jones Island poster Island Life

GRACE JONES - ISLAND LIFE, 1985

Original Island Records promo poster, 24"x24".
Design and photography by Jean Paul Goude.

Jean Paul Goude's amazing image was a brilliant illusion. The convincing yet impossible pose was created in 1978 by photographing Grace in a variety of poses, some supported by clear acrylic boxes, and then reassembling the cut-up Ektachrome transparencies: see original here.

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


thumbnail link to original Grace Jones Island poster Slave to the Rhythm

GRACE JONES - SLAVE TO THE RHYTHM, 1985

Original Island/Manhattan promo poster, 36"x24".
Design by Jean Paul Goude.

Initially an NY disco diva, with designer and partner Jean-Paul Goude Grace Jones created a radical androgynous new image and a musical metamorphosis, one of the most memorable of the era. Goude can be seeing creating the bold cut-up image - see original here - its origins in Goude's cover of Cristina's 1984 album Sleep It Off - at the beginning of the song's video.
'Slave To The Rhythm' was the apogee of Trevor Horn's unique production sound.

£425.00 conservation framed.

Original promo poster, 39"x28".

Original promo poster, 24.5"x17".
Artwork by Barney Bubbles.

Before his celebrated designs for Stiff, Radar et al, Barney Bubbles created a spectacular body of work for Hawkwind.

THE SPECIALS - GHOST TOWN, 1981

Original 2 Tone promo poster, 18.5"x28.5".
Design by John Sims and David Storey.

Under Jerry Dammers' idiosyncratic direction, David Storey and John Sims created the 2 Tone label's unique look, including Walt Jabsco, the dancing Ska man. For 'Ghost Town' Dammers wanted a striking illustration; Sims and Storey found the skeleton band on an old postcard.

David Storey: "What made 2-Tone different to everything else at that time was that Jerry directed all the visuals...We'd sometimes create these immaculate pieces of artwork, but he'd insist we roughed things up. He hated things looking clean and stiff."
