Sam Cooke Window Cards – Vintage Soul Music Concert Posters

Here we have three original cardboard boxing-style concert posters advertising shows by the King of Soul himself, Sam Cooke, over a six-year span. The first one is from Hawaii in 1959, with Little Anthony & The Imperials as the second-billed act. Then we have a bright pink poster from Virginia in 1963, listing several of Sam’s hit records, including “Twisting the Night Away.” And finally there’s a 1964 window card advertising Sam and co-headliner Bobby “Blue” Bland in concert out in California, just 11 months before Sam’s life would meet its tragic end. All three are enthusiastically discussed by collector Pete Howard of PosterCentral.com (phone 805-540-0020, email pete@postercentral.com). If old R&B broadsides like this make you swoon, be sure to view more located on this page sitting right here on my web site: http://www.postercentral.com/rhythmnblues.htm
