Signed Setlist/Record/Paper?

Post by themucaro » Thu May 13, 2021 11:43 pm

Hi everyone,

Greetings from Ireland, just putting this out into the universe in hope :)

I've been looking to get a verified Leonard-related present for my wife - we followed him around Europe (see my sig. below) and had Dance Me To The End of Love as our first dance at our wedding in France in 2018. Such fond memories.. I'd love to get something like a signed setlist or record for our wall in our (first) house where we've some portraits of Leonard... it's slowly becoming more of a shrine actually!

A few months ago I found a signed setlist online and tried contacting Allan Showalter to verify it but didn't get a reply and someone else swooped in before me. The other day I came across a signed setlist which I thought was genuine however having contacted Jarkko there's some doubts about the signature unfortunately (thanks Jarkko, you saved me a considerable sum of money!! :D ). Jarkko suggested I put up a post here to see if there's any luck.

I don't suppose anyone has anything like that for sale? Maybe it doesn't have to be a setlist but his signature on some piece of paper even that I could frame along with a painting or portrait or record sleeve.

Here's hoping anyway, thanks folks, hope you're all keeping safe and well :)


P.S. I put up a post yesterday in another part of the forum about a very early and rare Sharon Robinson project called Terea that might be of interest to fellow vinyl collectors ;-)

Came across this item: Seems legit since there is some provenance with the letter of Robert Kory ... music-1994
