- PROMO photo press slide negative -
The photo shown above ^^^ is the actual item you will receive, it is photographed with digital camera at high resolution under a bright light-box to show the fine details of the image.
Held up to natural light at appears 'translucent' (see through)
It measures 5cm x 5cm (50mm x 50mm)
As it is a 'negative' the image appears inverted/flipped (i.e. a right-hand guitarist will appear playing left handed or printed text will appear like mirrored/unreadable)
If a printed photograph were made from this negative, during the processing everything would be flipped & everything would look/appear completely correct.

These negatives were used in the none digital/Internet age through the 1970s to the early 2000s for the promotion of bands/singers/artists with their LP/single releases, tours, appearances, press releases.
The collection of various sized negatives, slides, photos & cuttings came from the office clearance of a Soho, London based photographics office who produced promo work & photographic material for major labels in the 1970s & late 1990s.
I obtained them from the building contractor who was tasked to clear & dispose of everything left in the office & then renovate. All items were due to be destroyed/sent to landfill. I am selling the items purely as 'music collectibles' as their are many folk who collect this sort of memorabilia. (Below shows sample pictures of the collection)
NO reproduction rights are given with this sale, it is purely a one-off sale for a single collectable slide ONLY
* Item is sold on merit of what it is. ' A collectible slide negative ONLY ' - sold from me to you ' *
I WILL REMOVE ANY ITEM IF REQUESTED, just drop me a message through eBay, I don't want to upset anyone.
This company was responsible for creating, producing & distribution of press releases, press kits, promo shots for many major record labels through this time.
This very slide was used to create the many promo photos that now sat in many music memorabilia collections across the world.
~# YOUR CHANCE HERE TO GET THE NEGATIVE FOR YOUR MUSIC MEMORABILIA COLLECTION#~
Original Promo photos are hard to find these days in their own right, since they are not really issued these days in the Internet/digital age we now live in. Often getting very good prices when sell on eBay.
A very rare item indeed. In all my years buying and selling on eBay i have not seen these offered by any other seller, so there are exceptionally rare indeed.
A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY MUSIC COLLECTION
Promo press photos produced from these slide negatives were created using the old fashioned, very traditional dark-room process back then, before the advent of digital labs. This item is sold as a collectible ONLY.
I have NO EXPERIENCE WHATSOEVER with creating photographs from negatives, handling or working with negatives, of what this photo would produce like these days. I have no idea. They may have contrast/brightness loss. Grain changes or colour shifts.
After all these years there is a chance some may not print as well as did originally since lots are 20+ years old now. I really don't know. All have been kept in protective sleeves all these years, but with natural decay/aging i cannot guarantee the quality they would produce to
*** I AM AFRAID I CANNOT REFUND WHERE THE SLIDES PRODUCE LESS THAN PERFECT PRINTS, IT IS THE SLIDE NEGATIVE I AM SELLING AS A COLLECTIBLE, NOT THE ABILITY OR RIGHTS TO REPRODUCE FROM IT***
FREE postage/shipping on ALL additional SLIDES since they are nice and light in weight!!
Payment to be made via PayPal ONLY
(PLEASE WAIT FOR ME TO SEND YOUR AMENDED COMBINED INVOICE IF YOU ARE BUYING SEVERAL ITEMS)
Lots and lots to come onto eBay in the coming months, nearly 30,000+ in total, all artists A through Z
Happy bidding - BE LUCKY !! hope it goes to a good home ! NO RESERVE !
I will be listing new items from the archive every day, in no particular order. As the collection is randomly sorted.
So please check back again or consider adding me as a favourite seller.
If you have a favorite band/singer and would like to see the slides i have of them, drop me a message and i will try to prioritize them to go on next. I estimate at least a year to list the whole collection to eBay.
