Collectors take note - rare Velvets & punk memorabilia sales

Two sales of music related ephemera & memorabilia recently came across my radar, and I wanted to share them with you. Maybe if we pool our money we can buy some of this stuff:

VU setlist, circa 1970
The folks at Record Mecca recently announced the acquisition of a serious collection of Velvets' related ephemera from none other than the family of Velvets guitarist, Sterling Morrison. It's an insane batch of everything from show fliers & bills, to receipts from Max's Kansas City, to guitar strings used on the 1993 reunion tour dates. For a complete listing & all the necessary information click over to Record Mecca's Velvet Underground Memorabilia.

Secondly, the UK-based Dig Gallery has made a plethora of 70's punk related items available courtesy of photographer Eileen Polk. Items include the scarf worn by Jerry Nolan on the back of the Dolls second album, an original Blitz Benefit t-shirt, and a shirt designed by Richard Hell and meant to be sold at Manic Panic. Visit the Dig Gallery for all of this, and more.
