Medium-thin glossy stock poster is in excellent (B+) condition; there are a series of tiny edge crinkles/creases along the left/right margins, a few tiny thin vertical stress bends hiding within the image area, a bit of curl to the paper from being rolled, a couple of very tiny pin-prick age spots ("foxing") around the outer margin area and a few stray pinch dings here and there, otherwise fine.
Semi-uncommon festival item from a mostly-forgotten (with good reason, apparently) event from the same group of promoters that put on the Atlanta, Toronto and New Orleans Pop Festivals. For a first-hand report on the event (courtesy of "Rolling Stone"), read HERE:
