Had a go at tidying up the image of Jim in the SSIS fold-out poster with the 7” vinyl. Don’t know if any of you guys have a crease proof copy, but I don’t…and I have three of them! Lol.
30+ years of being folded up will do that.
The crease stubbornly would fall all down the left side of his face across his eye (and when I say the left side…I mean from his perspective). I tried tidying it up years ago, but thought I’d have a fresh go…and just added a few other “improvements”. (Not so much with him…it’s impossible to improve upon perfection…)
The fresh attempt was spurred on by someone viewing my original attempt of “improvement” a couple of days ago.
My wonderful friend, Gillian, sent me this most AMAZINGLY HUGE poster of Mr Bowie. OMG…it is AWESOME! I love it! Thank you, Gillian!
More wall required at Casa Read…the Minds one is HUGE!
With my THIRD copy of the Someone Somewhere In Summertime 7 inch vinyl with fold out poster sleeve, I thought I would just cut Jim out (I know! I’m evil! All the rest of the boys are in the other framed copy – and it was Jamie Morgan who blurred out Charlie in that one, not me!) and have him on the wall in my bedroom. I know! How old am I?! Oh, but why the hell not! Just LOOK AT HIM!
Anyways…I thought We’d have some blu-tack around so I could just stick him to the wardrobe door, or on the wall somewhere, but no. No blu-tack. And no frame that will fit either. So temporary hanging measures have been taken! Necessity – the mother of invention! (Not that it is necessary to have a poster of Jim Kerr on your bedroom wall. WHAT AM I SAYING?! WASH MY MOUTH OUT! Lol.)
I have wanted this poster for SSOOO SO long! But it has been going for silly prices on eBay…UNTIL NOW! GOT IT!!! GET IN!!! Now…if I could just get Jim to sign it…that would be awesome! 🙂 But I am being greedy…
This photo is from the poster sleeve of Someone Somewhere In Summertime 7″ vinyl single. The sleeve folds out into a HUGE poster, with Jim and Charlie taking centre stage. Jim in a tie! Yes!
Unfortunately, the copy I got myself, having been folded up as the single’s sleeve for the best part of 35 years was a little creased! Using some magic, I’ve tried to smooth the creases out. Not bad, even I do say so myself.
That geko brooch on his collar looks AMAZING!
What a beautiful boy he is :-))
And the gecko…
Fold out magazine pin-up booklet with Jim on the cover. The inner blurb on the Minds is actually quite a good little blurb for such a throw-away piece of musical tat. And I do love that picture with Jim finger on chin, plotting world domination (or Derek’s demise from the band, at least).
