(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $5,360.60 (includes buyer's premium)


Original 1970 UK pressing of Lennon’s ‘Instant Karma,’ signed on the sleeve in black felt tip, “Peace from John Lennon,” and “Yoko Ono.” The 45 record is included. The record was presented to a nurse at a London hospital where she attended to either John or Yoko. Accompanied by a letter of provenance which states: “The Instant Karma sleeve signed by both John & Yoko was previously the property of Norah Josephine Kilcline. Norah was a nurse who lived and worked in London for many years and during this time she attended to either John or Yoko during a visit to the hospital where she worked. John and Yoko gave the signed record to Norah as a present when they were discharged.” Also accompanied by a printed eulogy for Kilcline and a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. In fine condition, with some scattered light creases, with a few near top edge, slightly touching a couple letters of signature, and a mild album impression. Recorded by Lennon while technically still a member of the Beatles, ‘Instant Karma’ was recorded on January 27, 1970, and released a little more than a week later, making it one of the fastest-released songs in music history. Although it is unknown exactly who was being treated in the hospital, it is well-documented that Lennon never left Ono’s side during an emergency blood transfusion during her pregnancy in late 1969. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
