B27963 – Paul Simon 1965 The Student Prince London Promotional Handbill (UK)
An original promotional handbill for upcoming events in 1965 at The Student Prince Folk Club in Wardour Street, London. The flyer lists performances in January and February of 1965 including an appearance by Paul Simon on 16th January. In Robert Hilburn’s 2018 biography of the singer ‘Paul Simon, The Life’ he explains that in 1965 “…Simon was on the road fairly constantly in England, playing more than sixty dates in four months. In some ways, he was a student again. Just as he had learned the skills of record making during the demo days and had sharpened his intellect at Queens College, he was learning about performing and adjusting to the life of a professional musician…”. It measures 12.5cm x 20.25cm (5 inches x 8 inches). The handbill has been folded leaving vertical and horizontal crease lines. There is wear to the crease lines and staining throughout. The condition is good.
