    The Who Who Are You Picture Disc LP (MCA Records MCAP-14950, 1978): Original Full Cover Press Proof with Six Original Press Proofs for Amnesty International's The Secret Policeman's Ball EP (Island IL9630, 1980).
    A great grouping, as follows. (1) A full color press proof, 26" x 14" on heavy cardstock, for the landmark Who album issued just days before the death of drummer Keith Moon. Based on the stock number and a note on the back cover regarding sound quality, this was the cover for the picture disc issue. Initialed at the bottom margin with the notation "Color OK" and the date "10 9 78". Very fine with minor creases and trimmed close at right edge. (2) Starring Pete Townshend, Tom Robinson, Neil Innes, and John Williams, the third in a series of Amnesty benefit auctions took place in 1979 and two records were released. Available here are six great press proofs from "The Music" 12" EP. All printed on cardstock, one is in full color, 26" x 14", and has a handwritten and initialed "QC" approval dated "3/30/81". The five other cardstock separation proofs with full registration marks are each 26" x 17" and are stapled together at top. They consist of black/magenta/ yellow, black only, magenta only, yellow only, and magenta/yellow. An interesting look at the printing process. Light inky fingerprints on the top piece with handwritten file notes, otherwise excellent. Would make an interesting display. All items are from the collection of Bert-Co Graphics founder's son. Very few of their archives were saved from destruction many years ago; these are likely unique and certainly very desirable, perfect for display.
