We are proud to offer this super rare, Original Cheetah Club Handbill, with CGC grading for the FIRST TIME in our auction! This first printing handbill from New Years Eve weekend in 1967 is stamped and postmarked on the reverse side (see second photo)!

 

Buffalo Springfield was the Rock/Folk springboard that launched several prominent Southern California musicians and one noteworthy Canadian, the great Neil Young. This new years run at the Cheetah were some of the last shows with original bass player Bruce Palmer. A month later he was deported a second time for drug possession, and replaced by Jim Messina. 

 

The Seeds got their start in Los Angeles during the mid-sixties and blossomed into the psychedelic era in 1967. They are renowned for their proto-punk garage rock sound. More recently, cover versions of various Seeds songs have been performed live by The Ramones and The Smashing Pumpkins.

 

The historic Cheetah Club was one of the hottest places to play if you were an up & coming band in the late sixties. Frank Zappa discovered the “Alice Cooper Band” there in 1967 and signed them to his label. Janis Joplin and Pink Floyd also performed there. Original Pre-Concert First Printing material from the Cheetah is extremely difficult to locate, so this lot represents a special opportunity! Awesome artwork by Eugene Hawkins! 100% Original with no restoration whatsoever!
