Original 1st printing 17&1/4 x 25" concert poster for the Jimi Hendrix Experience appearing with Cat Mother & the All-Night Newsboys and West Fauster (?) at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 5/3/1969.
Designer unknown (poster was distributed by CHUM-FM), medium-thin flat vellum stock poster has been professionally restored to very good/excellent (B/B+ to B+) condition; a large tear across the center of the image and heavy corner/surface wear (multiple pin/staple holes/small pulls and creases) have all been filled/repaired/flattened/painted over so the poster now lays flat and most of the work is VERY well-camouflaged within the design- you really have to examine the piece closely too see all of the work. VERY professional restoration job on this one, most of the issues would be obliterated by a good framing job.
GORGEOUS Hendrix concert item from the notorious "bust show" (Jimi got caught at customs with drugs in his bag), this version of the poster (there is also a David Byrd-designed cardboard tour blank) was apparently sold or handed out at the concert by the radio station sponsoring the show (CHUM-FM).
