Description


Vintage Decca Records promo card of the group, 5.5 x 4.25, signed in blue and red ink by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman, and Charlie Watts. In fine condition, with some scattered faint staining. Signatures were obtained at the Locarno Ballroom, Coventry, England on April 17, 1964, and is accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient, which reads, in part: "I joined the school's Old Boys Rugby Club. In the early 1960s, the club was successful but needed more fund-raising and so several of my fellow club members decided to promote concerts to raise money. In 1963 they contacted the Rolling Stones before the Stones were really famous, and booked them to appear at the Mecca Locarno Ballroom…However, by the time they came to fulfill their contract…they had a current song in the Hit parade…and there were several thousand frenzied fans there to see them…I and several club members joined the Stones in the rest rooms, where we chatted, drank with them and watched as they played cards before it was their turn to go on stage. The Stones had brought with them promotional picture cards which they very kindly signed for me on the night." An early and particularly boldly signed example, obtained as the band was building their fan base, and shortly before the band's first trip to America.
