Description

This 1965 Globe Poster Co. billboard advertising the Fall-October R&B Revue once adorned the Royal Theatre in Baltimore, Maryland. The 35-1/2 x 22 poster features the legendary Tommy Hunt, The Contours and the renowned Booker T and The MGs (of Blues Brothers fame), all backed by the Otis Redding Orchestra. This relic contains black lettering and photos imprinted on a vibrant orange and green background. Despite moderate creasing, vertical folding and having been exposed to the elements during its heyday, this significant broadside is an exceptional piece of advertising and American music history.
