Cold Blood was one of the pioneer bands of the "East Bay Grease" sound, San Fran’s brass horn heavy funk-rock of the 1960s. They musically broke ground when Bill Graham was blown away during an audition they played at the Fillmore West in 1969. The legendary Tower of Power horn players performed with Cold Blood several times. The style of their noted lead singer, Lydia Pense, was often compared to Janis Joplin. It was Joplin herself who became a fan of their music and recommended the audition to Graham. 


This original poster was designed by Texas poster artist Ken Featherston. Ken was a major figure in the history of Armadillo World Headquarters and met his tragic end by mistakenly being shot to death at the venue at the age of 23 in 1975. Armadillo posters are currently enjoying top collector demand. This can be attributed to several reasons including scarcity and historical significance as ground zero in the Texas psychedelic scene.
