Description


Very desirable ballpoint signatures of Nick Mason ("Nick"), Roger Waters ("Rog"), Rick Wright ("Rick"), and Syd Barrett ("Syd"), on a neatly trimmed off-white 3 x 4 notebook page. Pencil notation on reverse indicates that the autographs were obtained on December 22, 1966, the date of a show at the Marquee Club in London. In very good to fine condition, with light creasing, and old tape stains to two edges, not affecting the signatures. Dating to only a year after their formation, these incredibly early Pink Floyd signatures are crisp, bold, and derive from the band's original stomping grounds—Pink Floyd played the Marquee on Sunday afternoons as part of the Spontaneous Underground club.

It was at the Marquee Club that future co-manager Peter Jenner saw the band perform for the first time, and on October 31, 1966, signed the four to a management contract with Jenner and Andrew King. A couple of weeks after these autographs were obtained, the band entered a proper recording studio (Chelsea’s Sound Techniques Studios), where they spent two days recording 'Interstellar Overdrive,' 'Let’s Roll Another One (aka Candy And A Currant Bun)', 'Nick’s Boogie,' and 'Arnold Layne.' This is a seldom-offered set with all original founding members, pre-dating any recorded material. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from REAL and a certificate of authenticity from Tracks, which notes: "As was common in this early stage of their career, all four band members signed their first name only…To date, this is the earliest set of Pink Floyd autographs known to exist. Indeed, Syd Barrett era Floyd sets are highly prized, and 1966 sets are virtually non-existent." Also includes a modern 10 x 8 satin-finish print of a circa 1966 photograph of Pink Floyd.
