Original 1st printing 14&3/8 x 21&1/8" concert poster for a series of January 1967 shows held at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit, MI. Shows listed include: Mc5 and the Trees (1/20), Scotty's Group with the Passing Clouds (1/21), the Plague with G-Water Blues (1/27) and MC5 with the Vernon Highway Band (1/28)
Art by Gary Grimshaw, image is # 12 in the Russ Gibb Presents/Grande series.
Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster is in good/decent (B/B-) condition; there are a set of hand-colored diagonal tape pulls in the upper left/right corner tip and in the bottom center margin (bottom center also has an additional sliver of clear tape), along with a series of tack holes/tiny vertical tears along the top margin, a light amount of handling, a slight wave/warp to the paper, a few light handling dings here and there, a few tiny pin-prick spots and tape remnant marks hiding within the image area and a couple of pieces of archival tape on the reverse, otherwise fine.
Despite the assorted conditional issues on this example, it still presents itself quite nicely. VERY early Grande/Grimshaw piece featuring a cool portrait of the MC5's Fred "Sonic" Smith as the central image.
