Charles Brown Window Card, Percy Mayfield Concert Poster 1950s

Here we have a pair of scarce 1952 concert posters from Charles Brown and Percy Mayfield, two practitioners of slow, smoky, piano-bar rhythm & blues music in the post-war era. Both are very colorful window cards from the deep south, with catchy graphics, loads of song titles and tons of history behind them. They’re also both “tour blanks,” with Mayfield’s specific concert information machine-stamped in, and Brown’s written in by hand. Enthusiastically discussed by collector Pete Howard of PosterCentral.com (phone 805-540-0020, email pete@postercentral.com). If you love old R&B concert posters like this, be sure to go see more of them displayed on this page located here on my web site: http://www.postercentral.com/rhythmnblues.htm
