Nice price indeed... I remember in the pre-ebay days they were hard to find, I remember answering an ad in Record Collector thenhaving to get two buses and walk through a long industrial estate to buy some La's CD singles off a guy who worked in a Tile cutting factory (!)... crazy times!

I think I had this article up on the geocities site, but I've never seen the cover for it.

Edit: http://web.archive.org/web/20091026193901/http://www.geocities.com/the_las/labits5.html

I had a post album release interview up (see link above).. this magazine is from 1987, which means it could be something interesting, before the constant self criticism.

RECORD MIRROR MAGAZINE 21/11/1987 T'PAU, DREAM ACADEMY, HAPPY MONDAYS, THE LA'S

Kev, some unique items there. Nice.

Inverted in Photoshop, for anyone that's curious..

Myself and James picked up a few of these at least a decade ago, £5 roughly, at the time. I may even have been sent them by James, I can't recall.

There's a few more, along with the same photos, but with the US label logos (London, I think) and contact details, as opposed to just the Go! Discs label logo and UK phone numbers.

Yeah I got them from a Newcastle record fair as I remember and sent a set over to you mate... the same guy I got them off later pointed me towards some La's white label test pressings/fan club badge etc. in the years to follow, and I've since picked up a few more press photos over the years too...

The thing to remember with these (I know he'll not get the £50 he's currently asking...) is copyright isn't included... I doubt you'd get much problem if you did buy them to reproduce/blow up larger but then there are some reproduction places that do it by the book and would ask for copyright permission maybe?

In times gone by I would have been all over that poster but alas I'm gonna reign in buying any paper goods/memorabilia as I just end up storing it away and letting it gather dust... hope this went to a nice home... great poster!
