The Who - unused and possibly unissued Christmas card from Track Record, mid 70's. Looks to be a 'in-house' mock up of a Christmas card, which would have been sent out to friends, colleagues and the media. The card comprises of a double folded card about 275mm x 190mm, with an inner card of 115mm x 190mm housing a colour photo [not picture, an actual photo] of Pete and Keith in the back of a car. On the front fold is a rubber stamp logo of "The Who" with a draw in green and red holly leave and berries. On the reverse side, written in pencil in the top corner are the words 'M Shaw'. This item, along with some other items on our web site came from the estate of the late Mike Shaw, long time friend and work colleague of the band. This item is again a one off mock up of what we believe is an unused Christmas card.

The Who - North America/ Canadian Leg of the 'Fallout Shelter Tour' 1973, itinerary details, EX+ condition, from the estate of the late Mike Shaw, long time friend and work colleague of the band. As you know these details/booklets were given only to the band members, management and major crew members. So they are very rare and very sort after. This 10 page itinerary contains all band, staff and crew members names along with hotel address and phone numbers, travel details, and production schedule etc. As well as local liquor stores, local clubs and local music stores in the towns and cities on route. The North American/ Canadian leg of the 'Fallout Shelter Tour' of 1973 covered the San Francisco, LA, Dallas, Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington DC. This 10 paged typed then photocopied document is the genuine item, this is not a reproduction, this is a 40 year old document. Only about 14 copies of these itineraries would have been produced and given to each of the named person on the top of page 1. There are a couple of hand written corrections on two of the sheets, referring to phone numbers and Air Canada. This document is a very rare example of an early tour itinerary, the earliest that we have had. These itineraries were produced and complied by 'Journeys Far & Near' from LA. This is a one off, and I don't expect another exists, most of these, even today are destroyed once the tour has finished.
