Description

Purchasing a mic stand and cassette tapes—just days before commencing the Sgt. Pepper sessions

DS, one page, 8.25 x 10.25, December 1, 1966. Receipt for a purchase of “1 Floor Stand & Boom…9 4p. Cassette Tapes c 90…16 M.3 Flashbulbs” from Studio Jeunesse in London. In fine condition, with a block of toning to the upper left corner, staple and filing holes to left border, and expected document wear. The ideal vintage Lennon signature is unaffected by any of the stamps or notations on this interesting art-related document. Later that week, on December 6, the Beatles would begin recording Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band—perhaps the most influential album ever produced. Given this coincidental timing, perhaps the tapes and microphone stand Lennon purchased from Studio Jeunesse were used during these early Sgt. Pepper’s sessions—maybe even used to record a ‘Lucy in the Sky’ demo! Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
