Handwritten note from Prairie Prince to Tommy with washing instructions for the shirt that he personally made and gave to Tommy. Prairie was drumming for ‘The Tubes’ and also played drums on a couple of ‘Teaser’ tracks.

Tommy hanging out with the band ‘Coven’, August, '76. It's suggested that Tommy contributed guitar parts to some of the album, ‘Out of The Vault’ (in particular, ‘Black Swan’).
