Here we have a very SPECIAL offering from our own backyard! This 1970 Original "Tree Frog" poster is a very scarce relic from the Baltimore music scene of the 1970's. Tree Frog Productions was a grassroots promotion company that staged concerts at Painters Mill Music Fair, a small theater in Owings Mills Maryland, a suburb north of Baltimore. The posters were printed in small quantities and are next to impossible to find, in any condition.

 

This poster was produced for a Derek and the Dominos Concert on Sunday, November 29th 1970. There were less than 200 posters of this issue printed. The poster here shows a little bit of its age, but overall is a very good example from this short lived poster series. 

 

Derek and the Dominos material is highly sought after due to the small amount of posters produced during their short but important timeline together. Hot on the heels of Blind Faith, Eric Clapton performed with Delaney Bonnie & Friends, which consisted of future members of what would become Derek and the Dominos. Dave Mason and George Harrison also appeared in early jam sessions during the birth of the band. Probably most noteworthy is the inclusion of Duane Allman into the fold during August 1970.

 

Although Duane Allman did not tour with the band, it is important to note that this venue, Painters Mill, was the location of the final Allman Brothers Band concert Duane played live in front of an audience. The lineage between this venue and Duane Allman also being involved with “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs” is undeniable. Scarce Clapton related material is among the most desirable items issued, and this piece is sure to enjoy spirited bidding from collectors looking to add one of the most historic and sought after concert posters EVER to their collection!
