Original 1st printing 11 x 16&7/8" concert poster for the Grateful Dead appearing at the Old Renaissance Fairgrounds in Veneta, OR on 8/27/1972 (show was a benefit for the Kesey family-operated Springfield Creamery, and was "sponsored" by their main product, "Nancy's Honey of Yog(h)urt").
Art by Richard Sutton, medium-thick flat index goldenrod stock poster has been professionally restored to excellent (B+) condition; several small tears in the image area and around the edges (in the lower left corner, around "27th", above and below the "a" of "Grateful", top left corner and in a few other areas) have been filled/sealed, leaving a couple of VERY subtle discolorations (nothing serious) and a touch of light surface rubbing here and there (most of the repairs blend into the background fairly well), plus there is a subtle moisture ripple throughout the piece (concentrated mostly along the top edge) and a few tiny scuffs and pin-prick spots here and there, but overall it looks pretty nice.... very decent restoration job.
As a note of provenance, this particular example comes directly from a long-time band associate who very likely worked at the event (and MANY others).
As it also goes without much explanation, this benefit was also the LEGENDARY Merry Prankster-fueled party that later became known as the "Field Trip"; the all-day event was filmed ("Sunshine Daydream", which was FINALLY officially released in 2013), and by all accounts was one of the hottest, sweatiest, naked-est, craziest bacchanals the Pranksters ever held; listen to the show HERE:
