This page has music memorabilia for sale other than the Stevie Ray Vaughan items which have their own page. I can ship anywhere in the world. All prices are exclusive of shipping and 3% handling that I have to pay to the payment processor. You are always welcome to make an offer on multiple items.
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.
The Beatles tickets: (1) Unused ticket for the movie premier of “A Hard Day’s Night,” September 3, 1964, Aynor, SC. (2) Unused ticket for the movie premiere of “A Hard Day’s Night, August 12, 1964, San Francisco. $100 each or both for $175. (3) Ticket to The Beatles last public concert, Candlestick Park, August 1966. Unused full ticket not currently available separately, but buy all three tickets for $825. All three of these ticket were mounted in a frame. See photo of backs of the tickets. Front are all near mint.
Paul McCartney signed concert program, includes Linda McCartney and the rest of the band. Obtained by a VIP pass holder in Lexington, KY, in February 1990. The pass is on the front of the program, and also includes the ticket stub (not shown). I believe the program is complete. Rare to find Paul’s signature with proof of how it was obtained. Full band autograph sets including Linda are also difficult to find. Appraised for $3,000 by Frank Caiazzo. Only $1950.
The Beatles Yellow Submarine lunch box from the late 1960’s with thermos. As pictured. The thermos does not rattle, indicating the glass is unbroken, which is a common problem. Fall eBay sale of similar set was almost $400. My price $375, which is what I paid years ago.
The Beatles Anthology, 8 VHS tape sets in original slipcase. Best documentary on The Beatles, produced by Apple Records with the cooperation of the three surviving Beatles and Ono. $20
The Beatles in Mono CD box set. Limited digitally remastered thirteen CD box set that contains the 10 albums originally released by The Beatles in mono (1963’s Please Please Me up through 1968’s The White Album) plus two further discs of mono singles masters. As an added bonus, the mono Help! and Rubber Soul discs also include the original 1965 stereo mixes, which have not been previously released on CD. These albums will be packaged in mini-vinyl CD replicas of the original sleeves with all original inserts and label designs retained. At the beginning of the ’60s, stereophonic recordings were just coming into their own but many households didn’t own stereophonic record players. In most cases, an album would originally be mixed in mono for mass consumption and then separately mixed in stereo for those with modern equipment. As the ’60s wore on, mono mixes became secondary over stereo and then were eventually abandoned altogether. The Beatles’ first 10 albums were mixed twice: once in mono and then in stereo. The mono mixes were sometimes strikingly different to the stereo mixes, which has ensured their collectability over the years. This box contains all the officially released Beatles mono mixes in one limited edition box set. $135.
(left) The Beatles HELP! Deluxe Book/DVD Boxed Set. Wonderful set is complete with two DVDs, hard covered book (lots of photos), reprint of the original Help! script, reprint complete set of Help! lobby cards, reprint of Help! British quad movie poster. All in slip case with interior wrapping and shrink wrap. Shrink is open, but looks like this was never played. $50
(right) The Beatles in Stereo box set. Digitally remastered 17 disc box set (16 CDs + DVD) containing all 14 original Beatles albums released between 1963 and 1970 plus the two CD Past Masters collection of non-album tracks and a bonus DVD containing all the mini documentaries that can be found as enhanced tracks on each of the individual CD releases. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere. The albums have been remastered at Abbey Road Studios in London utilizing state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. Within the CDs’ new packaging, the booklet includes detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. STILL SEALED and in original shipping box.$175.

It is currently shrink-wrapped onto acid-free foamboard, open to the article, but will be shipped without the foamboard unless you want to pay a little extra. You could leave it as is and put it in a frame. The magazine has been stored this way for many years and I really do not recall what the cover looks like. It may have an original mailing label from 1970. $10

SECTION 2 – ROCK AND ROLL
Original JIMI HENDRIX autographed Rolling Stone magazine 1968. The magazine itself is worth quite a bit, but this is the only Volume 1, Number 7 with Hendrix on the front cover that I’ve seen signed. Classic 1960’s inscription “Stay Groovy” to Lee. Signed in black ball-point pen on the cover. The only reason I would sell a Hendrix autograph out of my personal collection is that I have three. Seventh issue of Rolling Stone, and a great image of Jimi playing on stage. The magazine is complete and in great condition. It is currently matted – in purple of course – and ready for a frame. There is no tape, glue or other adhesive holding the magazine in place, just acid-free corners on preservation matt board. Rolling Stone magazines were mailed folded in half, so this is original condition.
I bought this in 2005 from reputable auction house Ira & Larry Goldberg. At that time I showed it to noted Hendrix researcher Barry Gruden whose opinion was also that is genunine. In 2017 I got a Certificate of Authenticity from one of the largest auction houses in the world, Heritage Auctions. The Heritage COA is included in this sale. $4,995

Eric Clapton photograph taken in Chicago by my friend Paul Thomas. 20×30 inches, this is an actual photographic enlargement, and the image shown does not do it justice. It is mounted and cannot be rolled for shipping. Pick up for free, or it will have to be shipped flat. $100 unframed.
JIMI HENDRIX poster, Woodstock promo 1994, 28 x 18, $20
Buddy Holly, his first album and first single. The album cover has some seam splits, but it is pretty rare and displays very nicely. The 45 is a promotional pink lable copy of Buddy’s first record “Blue Days, Black Nights” which was in near mint condition until a bad framer got tape stuck to the lable. One of the reasons I learned how to do custom picture framing. Framed as shown $450. Records unframed $200.
SHERYL CROW. bandana from a tour in the late ’90’s I think. Would iron nicely for display, or wear it as is. $5
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.

Rare Townes Van Zandt autographed book, For the Sake of the Song. A collection of the enigmatic, legendary songwriter’s music and lyrics, with accompanying photos and artwork. John M. Lomax’s introduction begins by describing how Caddo Parish Studdard III introduced him to Van Zandt in 1966 in Austin, and goes on to postulate that he may be one of the greatest songwriters of the twentieth century–a claim that was a bit audacious at the time of this book’s publication, but one that is today accepted as a fact among folk music enthusiasts and scholars.
