SPECIAL COLLECTION. I acquired an extensive collection from the estate of a fan of the great multi-stringed-instrumentalist David Lindley. He started out in San Francisco in the 1960’s, then Jackson Browne’s band in the 70’s, then his own bands El Rayo X and duos with Hani Naser and Wally Ingram. He has recorded with many of the greatest stars of the 70’s and 80’s – too many to list here. There are almost 300 items – Avalon Ballroom posters and postcards, Lindley and El Rayo X posters, shirts, CDs, records, promo items, and many autographs. I will post a special page for this cache, but let me know if you are a big Lindley fan and I will make you a whopper deal. I have set up a separate page for this collection. Access it through “Menu” dropdown.
There are four sections on this page, listed below. Click on them to jump directly to the section you want to see first, or just scroll down the whole page to make sure you do not miss anything cool:
SECTION 1 – THE BEATLES
An extremely rare ticket to the 8th concert ever performed by the “Fab Four.” The Beatles as history knows them was not complete until Ringo Starr joined on August 18, 1962. This ticket is for a show just six days later! It is one of the earliest concert items you could possibly have from the Fab Four. I have only seen one other ticket earlier than this in the past ten years (and it sold for almost $9,000). The extra-special thing about this ticket is that this very ticket appeared on The Beatles’ own official website (see photo). The Beatles had a collectibles page, and there was my (could be your) ticket! $5,000.

One of the reasons I learned how to do custom picture framing. Framed as shown $450. Records unframed $200.
LOS LONELY BOYS: These are all very early items of memorabilia, mostly from 2003 when they first were noticed outside Texas. Great music, they were one of the few new bands of the 2000’s that I was interested in. Think Stevie Ray Vaughan meets Tejano. Great harmonies from the Garza brothers.

SECTION 4 – OTHER GENRES
Willie Nelson “Austin City Limits” TV tickets. Rare.
Austin City Limits operated the same way regardless who was recording: a one-sheet program folded into 4 pages, blue tickets for guaranteed admission (difficult to come by since the original studio only held about 3-400 folks), pink tickets for those willing to stand in line and hope to get a seat if the “blue” people didn’t fill the studio. That’s it for things given to the public – program and ticket.
