This custom encompasses more than 27 years of Silver Surfer and Joe Satriani history...

The focus of this Silver Surfer/Joe Satriani custom is the original relase 45 “Surfing with the Alien” off of the album with the same name. 

The artwork for the album, released August 1987 was “borrowed” from Marvel Comics’ issue #1 June of 1982 Silver Surfer, page 6, panel 1.  No permission was ever granted for this although the album was re-issued in August 2007 for its 20th anniversary.  That  Legacy Edition artwork is displayed with the 45 and the comic is on the left surrounded by the USPS first day of issue stamps and postmarks commemorating Marvel Comics.

On the right, a photo of Joe Satriani is autographed and displayed with a Limited Edition “Silver Surfer” guitar pin.

In sleeves on the back you will find each item’s provenance as well as a duplicate comic to read.  No other gathering of entertainment fine art will you find to match this History in Vogue original and one of a kind.  It is the pinnacle of assemblage.

Everything is contained within a custom-built wood frame and protected by conservation glass.

We build customs occasionally by special request.  We have several pieces already finished and ready for purchase at www.nwlimited.com so come claim your piece of History in VogueTM!

If the rain comes…

I can show you, I can show you…

Rain.  I don’t mind.

Shine, the weather’s fine.

Can you hear me, that when it rains, and shines.

(When it rains and shines.)
It’s just a state of mind.

“Rain” was released in 1966 as the B-side to “Paperback Writer” and has been called The Beatles’ finest B-Side.
Could it also have been the very first music video?
“The inspiration for “Rain” is agreed on by Neil Aspinall, the Beatles’ roadie, and John Lennon. They both described the band’s arrival in Australia, marked by rain and poor weather.[6] Lennon said, “I’ve never seen rain as hard as that, except in Tahiti”, and later explained that “Rain” was “about people moaning about the weather all the time”.[7] ”  (from Wikipedia)
Backward, or forward, the historic Beatles song “Rain” as presented by NW Limited…History in VogueTM can be yours for $500.  Available now.

The Beatles Bug Out

for Deep Space:
Monday, February 4, at 7 pm EST (that’s 4 pm for us left-coasters), NASA will be beaming the song “Across the Universe” straight towards Polaris via its Deep Space Network.  The occasion, or occasions, more correctly, are the 40th anniversaries of both NASA’s Deep Space Network and the Beatles’ recording of that song, also the 50th anniversary of NASA’s founding.
Polaris is 431 light years away from here. Even at 186,000 miles per second, the speed at which the song will be travelling, that’s a long trip.
The Beatles make history again!
NW Limited has far more fitting tributes, for any occasion of your choosing.
Below are some examples of our Beatles series.

 Beatles #38 Back in the USSR  $500


 Beatles #33 Yellow Submarine $500

             
   
          Beatles #39 “Rain”  $400

Detail, lower left corner of “Rain” #39 showing postmark detail and vintage pin

These pieces began with England’s Royal Mail Beatles Album Cover postage stamps which were issued January 9, 2007 and a first-day-issue postmark, which ensures that these remain an exclusive commodity. Included within is a 45 rpm (songs vary), which is the centerpiece. Frequently, there are pins or other memorabilia added which are from the same era.
These have been extremely popular and yet they are finite. The universe, on the other hand, much less so. NASA invites you to play along, Monday night, but wouldn’t you rather have the ultimate Beatles tribute for yourself?
