Malpractice Press Kit (1977)

Press package that Malpractice sent to a music fanatic in New Jersey in July 1977, after he wrote to the band when he saw their bio in Rock Scene magazine (March 1977). Click photos to enlarge.

8" x 10" cardstock poster, cut down from 11" x 17" presumably to fit into a smaller mailing envelope. The bottom portion which says "Specializing In Hard Rock" was cut off and used for Kevin's written note (below).
