PAE is pleased to present the FINEST QUALITY CONDITION, CGC graded specimen of this poster to EVER appear in our auction! This Electric Flag Original Poster boasts colorful fluorescent inks to advertise a 1968 Electric Flag, Traffic, Steppenwolf concert in Santa Barbara. The poster was created by artist Frank Bettencourt and the promoter for the historic Earl Warren was the late great Jim Salzer.

 

The Electric Flag showcased Mike Bloomfield, one of the most talented guitar players who ever lived. Bloomfield was a force to be reckoned with. From the Butterfield Blues Band, to the short lived Electric Flag, to the hours of recording with Bob Dylan, to the incredible instrumental prowess he exhibited jamming with Al Kooper - Bloomfield achieved legendary musical status at a very young age.

 

This Earl Warren Showgrounds poster was printed on very thin paper stock, making it difficult to locate in ANY condition. Finding one in this incredible, Museum Quality is almost unheard of. We've been auctioning posters for well over a decade, and never before has an example so fine passed through our doors. That in itself speaks volumes.
