This poster is signed in black ink by the artist Mark T. Behrens!

Only the SECOND CGC graded example of this Frank Zappa original poster we have ever offered! The legendary Pepperland was a short-lived venue in the Marin County town of San Rafael that produced a series of excellent posters in the early 1970's. They don't often come up for sale, and when they do they are generally conditionally challenged. This amazing Frank Zappa poster features the Mothers at Pepperland with Tim Buckley and Kindred.

Due to financial reasons, in 1969 Zappa disbanded the Mothers of Invention lineup and released his acclaimed solo album "Hot Rats". In early 1970 he formed a new version of the Mothers, which also added three members of The Turtles. They toured extensively that summer and into the fall, including this run in San Rafael. Soonafter the new version of the Mothers debuted on Zappa's next solo album "Chunga's Revenge", released four months later. 

This lot is in Superb Museum Quality Condition with no visible flaws of any kind! No nicks, cuts, tears or pinholes! In March 2018, a same graded signed example like this one reached $817 in our auction. More and more collectors are coming into the fold with the knowledge that artist signatures add a whole other dimension to their treasures. Read our blog dated 1/20/18 where we discuss the skyrocketing demand for signed material such as this lot!
