According to "Eric
King's Guide To Psychedelic Rock Concert Posters", this poster was printed
just once...all NR 8 posters are originals. Eric has drawn this
conclusion after several interviews with artist, Victor Moscoso. We
particular reason to doubt this, but we certainly have two distinct
variations of this poster.
This original/first print poster (we will call it Type A) has noticeably
lighter colors than the Type B original. The pink is a pale pink,
and the blue is a "baby blue". It is also slightly longer than the
Type B (1/8" or so).
This original/first print poster (we will call it Type B) has noticeably
darker colors than the Type A original. The pink is more
intense, a magenta, and the blue is deeper, a royal blue.
We have seen no posters that transition these two color combinations, so
we do not think that the variations were caused by strong/weak ink within
the print run. We think it is a separate run using different inks,
and cut at a different length. We rarely see the Type A poster, and have
priced it accordingly.
