The Who incredibly rare and most of all authentic autographed Tommy album signed by Peter Townshend, Roger. Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon.
Whats especially nice about this signed album, is that the band signed. Boldly on the inside of the cover on panel one, which has no contrast issues like the dark cover has, so there are.
No problems trying to see the signatures. Authentic Who signed albums by all four original members are just about. Impossible to find and this one is a beauty! This is without question the nicest Who signed Tommy albums that I. And several other collector friends of mine have ever seen.....This is very sharp and clean set of Who signatures on. This first and now legendary Rock Opera and one of the best records in music history.
The autographs were obtained on November the 8th 1970 at the Kinetic Circus in Birmingham England and comes with a letter of provenance from The Who fan who acquired their autographs which reads. I first saw The Who at the 1969 Isle of White festival. We had all gone mainly to see Bob Dylan first concert for three years and to experience Evensong with the Messiah.The Who were scheduled to headline the Saturday programme but had been ego-bruising with The Moody Blues to decide who would close the days proceedings. As events were running way behind time, they chose an earlier slot. They were fresh from playing Woodstock a few days previous and knew all about hanging about and waiting to go on. Their dramatic arrival by helicopter grabbed everyones attention and they bounded on stage and played an amazing set igniting the audience of 150,000.
Townshend in a white boiler suit leaping and winding his arm, Daltrey in white fringes spinning the microphone, Moon a manic bomb of energy and Entwistle just rock-steady. By comparison, later that evening in the darkness, The Moody Blues played music to go to sleep by. Fortunately, they were back at the Isle of Wight the next year and stole the show again this time from Jimi Hendrix. They played locally a lot for me and I went to their show in Birmingham on Thursday 5 November 1970. Seen them a few weeks before at the Birmingham Hippodrome and was raving about them.
His ears were still throbbing! The Mayfair Suite was located on a bridge over the main road between New Street Station and the Bull Ring.I had brought my Tommy album to get signed if I could. It was a big room with very few people about at that hour and no obvious event staff. I went upstairs heading to where I thought the band dressing rooms might be.
I heard a guitar playing, knocked and went in and was surprised to see Pete Townshend warming up. I asked if he would sign my album and he said he was happy to. He was very approachable and generous with his time. I went back outside and decided to wait for the others.
They all arrived one by one and all signed the album for me. I was most nervous with Keith Moon but he just laughed and seemed, well, normal. Their performance later was no disappointment.
This Who autographed Tommy album would be a true centerpiece to anyone's Who collection. The original owner cut out the. Panel with the signatures on it and had it framed. I had the panel that was cut out professionally restored (at a pretty steep cost) to the way it originally was, so for whoever acquires this piece, they can decide on how they to display it without being limited on how to do so.
