THE SMITHS-Hateful of Hollow-AUTOGRAPHED BY BAND
Here you are kids, a chance to bid on a great Smiths' LP signed by the entire band (try getting all 4 in a room together again). Please note that the signatures were NOT obtained by me, but rather a source whom I trust. The signatures were obtained by an individual who traveled to various clubs and venues in the 80's and early 90's to see bands he enjoyed and would obtain the signatures himself, in person. I am NOT an autograph expert, nor do I purport to be. The signatures do not come with a COA, but I would be happy to send additional photos to anyone interested. This is the gatefold, Rough Trade (Rough 76) release.
I would grade the cover VG+ as it only exhibits slight shelf wear. All four corners show absolute minimal pressure wear (slight pressure creasing on a lower left corner) and there is the slightest ring wear on the backcover. The signatures are with a black permanent marker on the front cover and are brilliantly clean (see photo). The record is a strong VG+ with only light, minor scuffs from passes across the inner sleeve and superficial, cosmetic scratches that will NOT affect play. . The label has no scratches or scuff marks (only light spindle marks) and the center hole is perfectly round.
