This Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane original poster promotes the historic FIRST Kaleidoscope run of concerts. These shows were scheduled to take place at 1228 Vine Street, but at the last minute were moved to the Embassy Ballroom in the Ambassador Hotel, at 3400 Wilshire Boulevard. The Kaleidoscope underwent an additional location change until finally settling in the former Earl Carroll Theater at 6230 Sunset Boulevard. There, the "in the round" shaped stages were used to present the concerts.

All of the posters in the Kaleidoscope series have this unique, round design. This lot is part of a group of recently unearthed, original Kaleidoscope posters (all 9 featured in The Art of Rock Book) we have the pleasure of now offering to the collecting community in this auction!

Number 1 is the most important number in every collectibles market due to their historical importance. Seek out our blog dated 1/25/2010 for more on this subject. Accordingly, this is a poster that always gets massive attention whenever it appears at public auction. This is only the third CGC graded example of this original poster to appear at public auction. 100% Original with no restoration of any kind!
