Original 1st printing 13&7/8 x 19&7/8" concert poster for rock n' roll pioneer Bo Diddley appearing with Big Brother & the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin) at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, CA on 8/12-13/1966.
Art by Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley, image ("Earthquake") is # 21 in the Family Dog/Avalon series.
Medium flat vellum stock poster is in STUNNING near mint (A-) condition; aside from a nearly-invisible pair of micro-pin holes in the top left/right corners and a soft pinch ding or two hiding within the image area, this example can not be topped.
An absolutely GORGEOUS bright/clean example of the 1st printing "Earthquake" poster.
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:
