Item Details

Mothers of Invention [and Tim Buckley and The Chambers Brothers] and Buffalo Springfield [and Collectors and Hour Glass (lights)]:. [Uncut sheet of two classic shows].

San Francisco, CA: Bill Graham, 1967. Second Printing/First Printing, "B" Variant. Both shows were Fillmore Auditorium events. The Mothers of Invention poster (BG097) was Stanley Mouse's first independent poster in Bill Graham's first series (Mouse is quoted as calling it his "Haiku poem, ... a series of visual syllables."). The 2nd Printing was printed after the concert on 8/19/1968 in a print run of 1,250 (an "A" is scratched in between the "h" and the "m" of "Graham", and "#97" was added to the poster just to the right of the Stanley Mouse credit above the date information).
The Buffalo Springfield poster was for a pre-Christmas concert and very deliberately avoided holiday tones. It is an early Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse collaboration at a time when Kelley picked in images and layout and Mouse did the graphics. All three variants of the First Printing were pre-concert. Variant B measures 11" x 21 1/8" and has an "A" scratched into the poster between the "H" and "M" of "Graham". Kelley inscribed the image of this poster. The cut marks are visible. An uncut sheet of a period event(s) is quite rare and this is a handsome copy. Near Fine. Very minimal edge wear, hint of toning at top edge, signed by Kelley in Springfield image, else bright and clean. 22.75"x28.25. Color prints. Item #3817

Price: $950.00
