A new milestone for us at PAE has been reached with this amazing, original 1965 cardboard poster featuring The Yardbirds. We have never seen the first original printing of this poster before until now!

 

The consignor of this item states that the original owner of this poster attended the show and acquired this relic from the venue that very evening. This EARLY Yardbirds issue also features The Lovin Spoonfuls and The Turtles, along with a long list of supporting acts at the McCormick Place Arie Crown Theatre in Chicago on December 11, 1965.

 

This concert showcased an early appearance of the legendary Jeff Beck on guitar for the Yardbirds, having replaced Eric Clapton just months prior. The band had just released a number one hit "For Your Love". This is also an early appearance by John Sebastian’s The Lovin’ Spoonful. The Turtles were also just digging into their first year together, having achieved breakthrough success with their cover of Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me Babe” reaching the top ten 4 months prior.

 

It cannot be overstated how scarce this first original printing is. We have seen MANY early Yardbirds issues over the past decade of auctioning concert material and we have never seen this cardboard poster pass through our doors before. There is a very good chance we may not see it again. Vintage cardboard posters from the early 1960’s are extremely difficult to locate due to such small quantities being originally produced for these early concerts.
