Sold for US$ 360 inc. premium
A Frank Zappa signed program, 1968
For a performance at the Garrick Theatre in Greenwich Village in New York City, program features two different black and white photographic images of the band on the front and back plus "of the era" text on interior pages; Zappa's blue ballpoint ink inscription on front reads "Old Mother Band / Frank Zappa / Thank you / On [sic]." Included is a 'letter of provenance' from the current owner outlining how he and his brother saw Zappa one night at the Garrick and were asked to be part of a commercial for Hagstrom guitars that the band was then filming; a year later, the owner's brother saw Zappa again, reminded the musician about the commercial from the previous year, and then asked him to sign the program, which Zappa did.
