Original 1st printing 11 x 17" commemorative poster for the (1976) 1st Anniversary of Antone's ("Austin's Home of the Blues") in Austin, TX. In addition to Little Walter (pictured), the poster lists a number of legendary blues performers who had appeared at Antone's during its first year, including: Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon, Bobby Blue Bland, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, Carey Bell, Little Milton and MANY more.
Artist unknown, glossy-coated index stock poster is in good to very good (B to B/B+) condition; there are approximately 2" long clear tape remnants in the upper left/right margin and in the bottom center margin, a;long with a few tiny pin-prick age spots scattered along the upper margin/border area, a few soft handling dings and a whisper of surface wear, otherwise fine... aside from the tape/age spots, it's actually pretty sharp.
Very early Antone's poster from the first year of the club's existence, long before it became a staple of Austin nightlife.
