A highly attractive early 1960s James Brown concert poster from December 9, 1961 at the Eagles Ballroom in Seattle, WA.
A lot of collectors feel this is the best-looking James Brown concert placard ever made, with its colorful layout of red, green and yellow plus its charismatic design.
This one has it all – lovely graphics, pictures of the musicians, key song titles, big size… everything a collector would want. Plus, this was the year that JB had four Top 10 hits, adding a little to the poster’s cache.
The entire wording found on this vintage soul music window display, from top to bottom: (First the white venue info): Eagles Ballroom – Seattle, Washington – Sat. Nite, Dec. 9th – Dancing 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
(In the black & red stripe): The James Brown Show – (and then the body of the poster): Featuring In Person the Fabulous James Brown – (and on his coat): “Please, Please, Please” and “Try Me”.
Sugar Pie DeSanto “I wanted to know” [sic – the hit as actually “I Want to Know”], The Famous Flames, Nat Kendricks “Pigs Feet”, The Brownies – 6 Beautiful Dancing Girls! (In the red stripe at the bottom): James Brown Orchestra. (and in bottom white margin): Globe Poster – Baltimore.
This gorgeous James Brown tour window card was designed and manufactured by Globe Poster Company of Baltimore, on cardboard stock, and measures 22 x 28”.
Enthusiastically displayed and discussed by long-time collector Pete Howard (805-540-0020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org). I (Pete) will pay absolute TOP dollar for a version of this James Brown 1960s concert poster or several other types from the same era – in fact, all 1960s collectible concert memorabilia!
