Design by Donna Sicklesmith, extra-thick glossy stock poster is in good (B) condition; there is a fairly pronounced curl to the paper from being rolled too tightly, along with a small wedge tear/creasing in the lower right corner of the centeral design, a few edge crease scattered along the outer margin area, a couple of small stress bends hiding within the image area and a trace of age spotting, otherwise fine.
Very uncommon multi-act poster from the late-1980's, this poster comes from the collection of former Bo Diddley band leader Debby Hastings. Check out a compilation of clips from the event HERE:
