 ITEM DESCRIPTION
 Original 1st printing 8&1/2 x 11" tan/buff colored-stock concert flyer for the ("Amazing") Charlatans appearing with Jefferson Airplane at California Hall in San Francisco, CA on 1/8/1966.
 
 Art by Charlatans lead singer George Hunter, image ("Rock & Roll Biplane") pre-dates the numbering system implemented by the Family Dog after Chet Helms took over several weeks after this show; this image is designated FD-IV in the Eric King guide.
 
 Thin flat stock flyer is in very good (B/B+) condition; a series of four (4) tack/pin holes along the top margin (left/right corners and over the "S" of "Sat." and the "n" of "Jan."), a couple of soft pin-prick/splatter stains in the lower right and right center margins (over "brought to you by" and next to the second "l" of "Roll"), a whisper of handling, a trio of ULTRA-soft horizontal roll bends (mostly visible from the reverse) and a series of very light tape pulls on the reverse, otherwise fine... an overall superb-looking example of this EARLY pre-numbered Family Dog flyer from 1966.
 
 An interesting historical footnote; this event ran concurrently with the Fillmore Acid Test, so the promoters for both shows (Family Dog/Merry Pranksters) arranged for transportation between the two venues so neither would be undersold. Allegedly, temporary FD caretakers/promoters (and future Grateful Dead managers) Danny Rifkin and Rock Scully left their own show to check out the Fillmore and never made it back. A fascinating artifact with a VERY neat back story!
