Time Life launched its new Spotlight Gallery enterprise with a gala event at Mr. Musichead Gallery in the heart of the Hollywood’s “Rockin’ Row” on Sunset Boulevard. The reception, lasting almost four hours, attracted hundreds of fans including a group of KLOS listeners who won the right to attend a champagne reception before the event was opened to the public. Spotlight Gallery’s first effort is the release of three limited edition clear vinyl LPs + album art lithographs — signed in the plate by band members —of ABKCO Records’ 12 X 5, Let it Bleed and ‘Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!’
Only 2,500 of these hand-numbered and embossed museum-quality lithographs will be available through a special license granted by ABKCO Music & Records, Inc. Attendees at Mr. Musichead were offered an opportunity to avail themselves of some especially low numbered editions. These highly valuable collectible LP and lithograph sets, each with a Certificate of Authenticity, are available on a first-come, first-served basis at www.spotlightgallery.com or by calling 1-877-914-3040. The lithographs are printed on acid-free, 100# Opus dull cover stock measuring 20” x 24” with an image area of 16” x 16.” No additional copies will be produced after the initial press run is exhausted and the signature plates will be destroyed.
The event at Mr. Musichead was hosted by air personality Chris Carter, heard weekly on Sirius XM’s Radio’s Chris Carter’s British Invasion and on KLOS’s Breakfast With The Beatles featured artisanal cocktails curated by Pura Vida Tequila.
