Description

Original 1st printing 19&1/4 x 25" concert poster for the Grand Opening of the Straight Theater in San Francisco, CA. Three shows are listed, from 7/21-23/1967, featuring: Quicksilver Messenger Service, Mount Rushmore, the New Salvation Army Banned and Mother Earth (featuring Tracy Nelson, 7/21), Country Joe & the Fish, the Charlatans, Blue Cheer and Freedom Highway (7/22) and the Grateful Dead with Big Brother & the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin, Phoenix and Wildflower (7/23).
 
 Art by Frank Melton, image is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 200 (plate 2.220).
 
 Medium-thin semi-gloss stock poster is in decent (B/B- to B-) condition; there are a number of handling dings/tiny bends/light creases and tiny pin-prick spots scattered throughout the image area, along with a moderate amount of edge/corner wear (tiny creases/nip tears and a series of thin bends), a pair of 1" and 2" horizontal tears in the right margin (sealed on the reverse with clear tape), a bit of moisture ripple to the paper, a small staple wedge pull in the left margin (just below the "S" of "Straight"), a randomly placed tack hole or two and other assorted little bits of wear and tear... this example has definitely been around the block a few times, but for such a large poster it's really not all that bad, all told- good/strong colors, unusual design, GREAT lineup... absolutely KILLER original 1967 poster from the Grand Opening of the Straight!
