A rare 8 x 10 signed at the world famous Tower Records on the Sunset Strip

Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, and guitarist. As a member of the Wailers, a reggae band that included Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh, and later on his own, Marley propelled reggae to worldwide popularity. Glossy 8 x 10 Island Records promotional photo, signed and inscribed in black felt tip “Lyn, One Love, One Rasta, Bob Marley.” In very good condition, with some light irregular adhesion to portions of signature and inscription, a vertical crease to right side extending through a small portion of signature and inscription, a couple stray ink marks, and some scattered light surface marks. Accompanied by a statement of provenance from the brother of the photo’s recipient stating, in part: “My brother worked as a buyer at the most famous Tower Record…Bob was in the store promoting an album and my brother received an autographed photo. My brother’s name was Lynn…As you can tell, Bob misspelled Lynn’s name…My brother was too nervous to point out the mistake.” Marley photos of any size are scarce, particularly 8 x 10s. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
