Chuck Berry Concert Poster 1950s Big Rock & Roll Show Window Card

One of the earliest and greatest rock n’ roll concert posters ever made , this 1955 gem fell at the very beginning of Chuck Berry’s long and illustrious career. “Maybellene” had been out for only a few months when Berry toured the south on a package tour which mostly featured R&B and doo-wop. The only poster we’ve ever seen that referred to Berry’s performing act as a “Trio.” And did he write “Little Queenie” after playing with Queenie Owens, pictured at the bottom of this poster? Enthusiastically discussed by collector Pete Howard of PosterCentral.com (phone 805-540-0020, email pete@postercentral.com). And if old R&B concert posters like this scintillate you, head on over to this page here on my web site: http://www.postercentral.com/rhythmnblues.htm
