Memorabilia: Photographs

I have hundreds of press/promo 8 × 10 glossy black-and-white photos (and a few in color, too) dating from the 1960s through the early 1980s. More than half are of jazz artists, and the rest come from all corners of popular entertainment: blues, comedy, soul, folk, cabaret, R&B, rock, singer/songwriters… looking for Count Basie, Roy Buchanan, Johnny Cash, Kenny Burrell, Flip Wilson, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, Tracy Nelson, Cannonball Adderley, or Steppenwolf? I might have it—and all photos are genuine and most are in excellent condition.

All photos ship in a stay-flat mailer with extra reinforcing cardboard. Here are a few examples, and of course there is no watermark on the actual photos. Contact me with questions or for a list of who is available, and refer to my Sales Policy page for information on invoicing and payment.

Photo of Gil Scott-HeronThe singer, poet and spoken-word performer, Gil Scott-Heron, formed the Midnight Band in 1974 with his longtime collaborator, Brian Jackson. The next year they released the critically acclaimed album, The First Minute of a New Day, on Arista Records. This photo was taken at that time. The upper left corner has a small paperclip wrinkle, as well as a bit of rust from the clip—the photo was clipped to a reprint of a 1975 Rolling Stone article, “Gil Scott-Heron: Survival Kits on Wax.” Otherwise, the print is in excellent condition. This offer includes a copy of the reprint, which is in excellent condition. The Troy Street Images watermark does not appear on the actual photo. Price: $13. Contact me for more information or to purchase.
