Original 1st printing 16&5/8 x 21&7/8" (linen-backed to 17&3/4 x 23&1/4") concert poster for Cream (Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker) appearing with the Electric Flag (featuring Mike Bloomfield and Buddy Miles) at Robertson Gymnasium on the campus of the University of California in Santa Barbara on 5/24/1968.
Design by Chuck Miller, image (borrowed heavily from a 1967 Guild Guitar ad featuring a nearly-identical photo of E.C.) is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 268 (plate 3.44).
Medium-thick flat vellum stock poster has been partially restored to good/decent (B to B/B-) condition; all four corners and the top/bottom center margins have had a fairly extensive amount of work/in-painting to cover tack/staple holes and a couple of tiny areas of missing paper, along with a small area just above the electrical outlet in the bottom center of the image, along the top margin (a series of tiny pin-prick spots), and there remains a bit of fading to the red pass of ink, a series of hairline thin stress bends (flattened by the linen mounting) and a touch of toning to the paper... not one for the condition-conscious, but it's still all there.
VERY uncommon/not easy-to-find original 1968 Cream poster from the AOR, this is first one I have had since 2011.
