Original 1st printing 22 x 14&7/8" concert poster for Blind Faith (featuring Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Ginger Baker and Ric Grech) appearing with Delaney & Bonnie and Friends and Taste (featuring Rory Gallagher) at Varsity Stadium in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 7/18/1969.
Design by Dream Machine, Ltd., medium-thin glossy stock poster is in very good to excellent (B/B+ to B+) condition; there is a tiny 3/4" edge tear in the left center margin (just to the left of Clapton's head), along with a series of light creases along the top margin, a few light pinch dings/fingerprints here and there, a tiny pin-prick surface spot/thin stress bend or two hiding within the image area and a couple of corner-tip bumps, otherwise it is a SUPERB example of this somewhat hard-to-find original concert poster from the short-lived British "supergroup".
According to one source, low turnout from this event was later used as leverage by the promoters (Brower & Walker) to persuade Eric Clapton to recruit John Lennon for the Toronto Rock & Roll Revival (held several months later at the same stadium). Historic piece with a great design!
