This original first printing poster was produced for a special Pacific Northwest concert which, unfortunately, ended up being cancelled. The lineup was to be Frank Zappa's Mothers and The Grateful Dead on March 23rd, 1969 at the Seattle Center Arena. Lamb and Mint Tattoo are also listed in support.

 

During this era, both Zappa and the Dead were just gearing up to be two of the most prolific touring bands in history. This poster brings the best of both worlds. The portrait of 1930s actress Jean Harlow, popular for her "Laughing Vamp" screen persona, is beautifully haunting. The design, border and detail embracing this colorful relic is splendid, starting from the "Olympic Mouse" logo at the top center on down to the bottom edge. A very rare poster we may not see surface again.
