Item 5412 - Bob Marley and the Wailers Signed 45 RPM Record Catalog 540 (Nov 2018)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $28,159.08 (includes buyer's premium)


Amazing Island Records 45 RPM single for 'Is This Love / Crisis' by Bob Marley & the Wailers, signed on the front of the sleeve in blue or black ballpoint, "Rasta Love, Bob Marley," "Earl Smith, Jah Love," "Love Always, Judy, xxx," "Carlton Barrett, Wailers Drummer," "Rita," "One Love Marcia," "Aston Family Mon Barrett," "Best wishes from, Tony (Road Manager)," and "Allan Cole, Tuff Gong Records, 56 Hope Road, Kingston, Jamaica, don't forget to write to us." Collector's notations to reverse of sleeve indicate that the signatures were obtained at London's Rainbow Theatre on June 3, 1977, during the band's Exodus Tour. In very good condition, with light soiling, moderate creasing (heaviest to the bottom right), a trivial area of surface loss, and partial separation along the bottom edge. The record is included. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. Released as a single for the 1978 album Kaya, 'Is This Love' became one of Marley's biggest international hits and is now perhaps best known as the opening track to 1984's landmark compilation album Legend, the best-selling reggae record of all time. An incredible offering that boasts a total of nine vintage signatures dating to Marley's self-imposed exile in England and a month before he was diagnosed with a form of malignant melanoma.
