Jimi Hendrix, Doors, Grateful Dead Concert Posters – Authentic or Bootleg?

In this video I display both the original, pre-concert printings and the after-the-fact reproductions of two 1967 concert posters involving the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the Grateful Dead and the Doors. Those three legends appear across two posters advertising concerts in Santa Barbara, CA thrown by promoter Jim Salzer. The differences are subtle, but to collectors the stakes are significant! Cast an eye and see if you have an original advertising piece or just a later reproduction… the latter vastly outnumbering the former. Enthusiastically discussed by collector Pete Howard of PosterCentral.com (phone 805-540-0020, email pete@postercentral.com). And if you love the psychedelic poster trip, be sure to eyeball more old psych posters shown on this page located here on my web site: http://www.postercentral.com/psychedelic.htm

  1. The first poster shown was done by fellow artist John Cushing. He did the one poster for Jim Salzer. Happy to know I have a first printing of this poster! I was never sure.

    Thank you for verifying that I have an original. I attended the concert but could not remember if I bought it there or afterwards. Very helpful.
