Dave Ball's Grand Hotel photographs

Bid for them online ... and there's more besides!


 

From the private collection of Dave Ball ex-Procol Harum Lead Guitarist: a set of 35 original prints from the Grand Hotel album cover shoot.

These are the only ones extant, the negatives having been mislaid years ago.

The photographs were largely taken by Iris Jordan using Dave Ball's camera.
They are all 10 x 8 inches (approx 25 x 20 cm)

Also included in sale: an original cover from Cashbox showing Procol Harum with the photo title: "Procol Harum Conquistadorable" (probably 12 x 8 inches).
 

A new copy of the Grand Hotel 40-year anniversary release, signed by Dave and including some of the photographs in the collection.

The auction is being run by www.hansonsauctioneers.co.uk on 17 November 2011. It's Lot #478

You can make a bid via telephone to the auctioneers or indeed make telephone bids live on the day.

All proceeds will be put towards Dave's continued attempts to make music (if that is a "good" cause remains to be seen!). If the winner of the auction is a Paler ie somebody who has found out about the sale via www.procolharum.com, or from BtP's Procol Facebook page, then they will receive a pre-release copy of Dave's new CD album, Don't Forget Your Alligator. (second place gets two copies, etc ....)

I doubt this auction will break the bank, so don't be scared about having a go.

Good luck,

Dave
