Les Paul Signed Iridium Jazz Club Postcard + Vinyl - Owned By Tony Prince
A Les Paul signed Iridium Restaurant & Jazz Club postcard. Also comes with an original 1951 10" vinyl press of Les Paul and Mary Ford's 'The New Sound! Volume Two'. Provenance: These were sold at the auction - The Tony Prince Collection, through Omega Auctions where Tony sold a lot of his own personal collection. Tony Prince is formerly a British radio disc jockey who broadcast on Radio Caroline and Radio Luxembourg in the 1960's/70's, before later becoming a programme director and businessman, responsible for establishing the remix label DMC. The postcard has been signed "To Tony - Howdy - Les Paul" in black marker on the reverse side. This originally came from the Iridium Restaurant & Jazz Club, where Les Paul would frequently perform as part of the Les Paul Trio from 1995 until his death in 2009. The front side of the postcard has a calendar with listings of performances. The postcard has some crease marks, a sticker mark on the front side, as well as some slight tanning on the reverse side (see photos). This measures approx. 6"x4.25". The vinyl comes in a hard card sleeve that has quite a bit of wear and tear, including a split on the top edge, a sticker mark on the reverse, as well as surface marks/foxing and tanning common with an item of this age. The vinyl also has a fair amount of scratching on both sides. Note that both of these are being sold as pieces of memorabilia.
