Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks and a detailed letter of provenance from the original recipient, in part: "The first Pink Floyd concert I attended was at Leeds Town Hall on the 28th January 1972 and this was one of several venues making up the Pink Floyd's UK winter tour 1972. This concert was all about Pink Floyd performing some of their most memorable music from the late 1960s but also performing Dark Side of the Moon, before its official launch on record in March 1973. I attended the concert with several friends studying at Leeds University who also knew roadies helping the band transport their equipment...as most were leaving the building my friends and I held back for a while and were invited to help remove some of the bands WEM speaker columns making part of the groups 360deg quadraphonic sound system...On completing the task we gathered around the bands 32 channel Allen and Heath sound mixing console weighing up the technology...the Floyd band members emerged and stood around the sound mixer for a chat with the sound engineers. Without hesitation the Pink Floyd concert programme was presented to each band member and on asking for their autographs they duly obliged. Whilst asking Roger Waters to sign I also plucked the courage to ask him what base guitar strings he used to this he replied 'Rotosound.' A friend also asked him about the main chord sequence for Interstellar Overdrive...and again he explained clearly the sequence." Also included is the original Leeds Town Hall January 28, 1972 ticket for the event at which these autographs were obtained.
