This Pink Floyd UFO poster was sold at auction in March. Here is that image and the Auction House's Description. BEAUTIFUL PIECE!

Pink Floyd UFO London Michael English 1967 XL Silkscreen

Original 1st printing 39" x 29" hand-pulled silkscreen concert poster for Pink Floyd (featuring Syd Barrett) on 2/27/1967 and 3/10/1967 (2/27 show was with the Brothers Grimm) and Soft Machine on 3/3/1967, all at the U.F.O. Club in London, England. Design by Michael English (pre-Hapshash & the Coloured Coat), medium-thick flat index stock silkscreen poster is in good to very good (B to B/B+) condition; a series of small creases/bends and tiny nips/tears scattered around the outer edges, a light to moderate degree of vertical/diagonal creasing along the left side of the image (a few soft folds), scattered small handling dings and a 4" diagonal bend in the bottom right corner (below Michael English's name), otherwise fine. This example presents itself VERY well, considering the age, size and fragility of the silkscreen ink... it will take a whole wall to display, but this is probably one of the most impressive-looking early Floyd posters from the "Piper at the Gates of Dawn"/Syd Barrett era. KILLER '60's "pop" graphic!

Hi Kiloh. Have come across some unreleased photos of SYD, and I thought I've seen ALL. Can we post for other SYDIDIOTS?
