Description


Exceptionally rare set of ballpoint signatures, "George Harrison" and "Eric Clapton," on a light green 8 x 6.5 sheet, which has also been signed by Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett (both first name only), and P. P. Arnold. The sheet is stapled to a larger off-white sheet. In fine condition. Consignor notes that these signatures were obtained at Sheffield City Hall in England on December 4, 1969, during the Delaney and Bonnie with Eric Clapton 1969 UK tour.

Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a letter of provenance from the original recipient, in part: "When I moved up to Sheffield in late 1968 I applied to work for the BBC in Sheffield as a junior reporter. My role was to interview the bands that came to play in the city…One of the shows that I was sent to was Delaney and Bonnie featuring Eric Clapton…Then a surprise announcement, a special guest appeared it was George Harrison of Beatles [who]…came out to play a couple of numbers, as you can imagine the whole place went mad. As usual after the show I went backstage to interview Delaney and Bonnie and also Eric Clapton. I took my mother along so that she could meet our hero. Imagine my surprise when I looked round at one point and saw her sitting on the steps with Eric Clapton on one side and George Harrison on the other they were swigging beer from bottles." The first grouping of these autographs that we have offered.
