Records signed by the artist..

The thread on Richard Popcorn Wylie got me thinking about records where the artist has signed the label. Any oddities out there?

I've got 'What about Love?' by the splendidly named Marboo where he has signed the label. Always assumed Marbooo was a group not a geezer before I found that. Think I found it in a charity shop as well (wtf?)!

There must be loads out there. What you got?

This was  a white label test press 45 Ady sent me ... I took it to Cleethorpes and asked Little Ann to annotate it which she duly did

To me it is priceless

I have this, Brian Mann, who wrote the Novas Nine "Why listen / Pain", with a mesage to a fan / girlfriend, on a super tough local Heritage label BTW (and a slightly different version to the ABC one).

I've got Thelma no catalogue #, ZTSC 82335 and  82336, The Distants, "Answer Me"/"Save Me From This Misery", from June, 1962.  It has the entire group's first name signatures, including Richard Street, James Weaver, Albert Harrell, Johnny, and Alphonso "Tex" Galloway.

Note that the "DECCA" logo has been mis-pressed on the right hand side - is this unique?

All copies of that press with "YDLMA" in very large writing are the same (they simply ran the primary blank upside down. or the secondary text depending on your point of view). Copies with "YDLMA" in normal size are all OK with Decca on left.

I don't know of any other Decca release like this, but there may be some, considering the size of their catalogue.

Nice signature - he was around on eBay about 15 years ago, sniffing out some of his old stuff.

Cheers
Mick

16990992_1316986055048544_1060247874_o.jpgYvonne Vernee was over here with The Elgins. At the time is was very ill. My mate Phil Aspinall took a record sleeve and she signed it to me. I had no idea! It is stuck through my letter box when I got up the next day. Sadly Phil died about 18 months ago. Much appreciated gesture from a great lad.

Someone out there has my copy,of "how sweet it is" Jnr walker ... On the white/purple SOUL issue,. Signed by the man himself,. I had it stolen from under my nose, during the Rock City gig, early 80's. 😫😮

 I also sold  a box of records which included a copy of Nate Evans, this time with feeling, signed by Curtis Mayfield (there is a link)

An acetate of a presumed unreleased song signed "To my brother Charlie… John "Someone"". Can't quite make out the last name properly, but it looks like "Higton"...
