Original 1st printing 14 x 20" concert poster for NYC folk/blues/rock legends the Blues Project (featuring Al Kooper) appearing with the Great Society (featuring Grace Slick) at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, CA from 4/22-23/1966.
Art by Wes Wilson, image is # 5 in the Family Dog/Avalon series. This was the first full-color poster in the series, as well as the first Family Dog show held at the Avalon.
Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster is in excellent (B+) condition; just a set of tiny ("cub") staple holes (all four corners), a 1/2" tear in the left center margin, a few light edge dings and tiny creases, a stray soft handling ding or two, a VERY soft set of tape pulls and a tiny bit of pen scratch ("C. Harris" in red ballpoint) on the reverse, otherwise fine. A MIGHTY sharp/crisp example overall.
This poster (and several others we are featuring in this sale) comes from the collection of underground comix artist (and personal friend of Rick Griffin and Rick Shubb) George Metzger. Read more about George HERE:
