This is the only poster that I have ever seen with Jimi Hendrix & Led
Zeppelin on the same billing. I am about 99% sure it is the only one
This poster measures approx. 14" x 20 1/2", and was printed on a
sturdy/coated (not glossy) index stock. The terrific psychedelic
artwork is courtesy of Linda Segul.
In addition to the poster we have available in NM condition, we also have
one that we can offer at a lesser price with minor border flaws. It
is still a very nice poster, and would frame beautifully. If you are
interested, please send us an email or give us a call.
We understand that on a valuable poster such as this, collectors will want
assurances that this is the "real deal". This poster was purchased
directly from the promoter, Bob Blodgett, who guaranteed that he had not
reprinted this poster. We believe him, as this poster would be all
over the place (with Jimi & Zeppelin on the bill) if there were reprints
available. However, it's not. We rarely see them.
