Y Kant Tori Read Press Release From Atlantic

I was rather excited to receive this item because I can not recall ever seeing it anywhere before! Below you will find scans of the official Y Kant Tori Read press release from Atlantic Records from 1988. I must give credit to MysT who obtained this press release and made it available to all of us. Thanks also to Richard Handal for emailed the scans to me.

Y Kant Tori Read band photos proofsheet

Robert Mezzio sent me this scan, which he says is from roughly late 1986. He says, "From what I understand, these shots were done sometime not too long after Tori's cereal commercial, which is why her hair is shorter than other various promo shots you see for YKTR - she was still trying to grow it out, and had a perm. Those crazy 80s!"
