Original 1st printing 14 x 20&1/8" concert poster for the Grateful Dead and the Sons of Champlin appearing "with other groovies" at the Straight Theater in San Francisco, CA from 9/27-28/1967.
Art by C. Braga, image is featured in the Art of Rock on page 201 (plate 2.224).
Medium-thick vellum stock poster is in good (B) condition; a set of tack holes (top left, top/bottom right corners, bottom center margin), along with a fair amount of toning along the top margin, a moderate degree of moisture rippling to the paper, a series of soft smudges and light handling dings scattered around the image area/edges and a stray pin-prick surface mark or two, otherwise fine.
Amazingly enough, about a minute-and-a-half of black and white footage from one of the shows surfaced about three months ago, check it out HERE:
KILLER 1967 1st printing Grateful Dead poster with crucial historical significance (*drummer Mickey Hart's debut performance with the band on 9/29). Unlike many existing examples, this one does NOT have "Dance Classes" hand-written anywhere on the poster.
