Original 1st printing 21&1/2 x 33&1/2" concert/event poster for the Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival, held at Otis Spann Memorial Field in Ann Arbor, MI from 9/7-9/1973.

Hutto & the Hawks, Roosevelt Sykes and the Revolutionary Ensemble (9/7), Music of Detroit with CJQ, John Lee Hooker, Yusef Lateef, Charles Mingus, Jimmy Reed, Big Walter Horton, Ray Charles and the Raelettes and more (9/8) and the Johnny Otis Show, Ornette Coleman, Victoria Spivey, Infinite Sound, Joe Willie Wilkins and the King Biscuit Boys, Houston Stackhouse, Luther Allison, Sun Ra, Otis Rush, Homesick James, Lucille Spann, Mighty Joe Young with Carey Bell and Eddie Taylor and Hound Dog Taylor and the Houserockers (9/9).

 Medium glossy-coated index stock poster is in excellent (B+) condition; there is a small 1" diagonal bend in the upper right corner, a few stray edge dings and tiny nicks scattered around the outer margin area, a few light surface scuffs, a couple of minor handling dings here and there, a soft bend in the upper left corner and a bit of light creasing along the top edge, otherwise fine.

Great-looking example of the '73 Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival poster.
