Description

Prince and the NPG storm Tower Records in Piccadilly Circus

Purple felt tip signature, "'Love God,' P, '88," on a light blue notebook page affixed to a 6 x 3.75 sheet. Also included are ink and felt tip signatures of eight members of Prince's touring band, The New Power Generation: Atlanta Bliss, Boni Boyer, Sheila E., Doctor Fink, Cat Glover, Eric Leeds, Levi Seacer, Jr., and Miko Weaver. The signatures are in the same exact manner as the Prince autograph—notebook page affixed to larger sheet—with the reverse of each backing sheet bearing collector's notations indicating that they were obtained at the Tower Records in London's Piccadilly Circus on July 29, 1988. In overall fine condition. Accompanied by four photos of Prince and Sheila E. at the time of signing, a WEA Records flyer and a color 24 x 34 poster (tears and intersecting folds) for the Lovesexy album, and a letter of provenance, which reads: "I bought these autographs, photos, flyer and original poster in 2004 from a Dutch woman that was on holiday in London when she was at Piccadilly Circus and saw that it became quickly crowded in front of Tower Records. So she decided to go and stand in line with others, not knowing for what or who she was standing there but standing in line she heard that Prince and his band came for a signing session."
