Bob James I saw something like this on my ceiling in the dark in '71! I asked my cousin who was spending the night, and not psychedelically entranced, "MAN! Did you see that?" He said, No man, but you did, and that's all that counts!" Dem wuz da daze, yas dey wuz!

The imaginative rock artist Lee Conklin has created quite a spooky image here on this "Poster From The Past". Centrally located is a photo of The Grateful Dead taken by famed rock photographer Herb Greene. The remainder of the poster includes numerous hand drawn faces with shading in a style somewhat different from most of Conklin's other work. The upper left and right corners featured the band's signature skull mascot, but not in a playful way. This time the artist took the viewer on a trip to Hell, in which the haunting images broke down in decay near the bottom...

A blue human hand is holding the stem of a small flower which has human eyes for leaves and a blossom with a tiny dancer in it's center is on this "Poster From The Past". At this point in time, the artist of this poster David Singer had begun experimenting beyond the framed collage style format that he is so associated with and started developing a technique which permitted greater freedom of using the entire poster or any irregular parts as area for the collage. During this period he developed and began using lettering styles unlike the Art Deco alphabet,...

Fifty one years ago back in 1966.... if you were down in Los Angeles, you could have passed the Acid Test with the Grateful Dead and the Merry Pranksters (Y)

Here is an original concert poster for Johnny Cash (circa mid-1960's) performing at a by gone music venue called the "Dream Bowl" which was located on Hwy 29 between Napa and Vallejo, California. It had such a rowdy and infamous reputation it was affectionately became known as the "Blood Bowl" for all the brawls that took place between the enlisted military personnel from the nearby bases and rough neck cowboys of the area. There was once even a local TV show broadcast from there televised on KTVU Channel 2 Oakland. It hosted all the big band greats of the 1940's...

Here is yet another collaboration of design between the "Top Dog" Chet Helms and the Master Big Five artist, Wes Wilson. This "Poster From The Past" features a photograph of an Orangutan as the central image. Family Dog's second poster in their series advertised the event known as the "King Kong Memorial Dance". It is also the first poster in which the famous Family Dog logo, also created by Wes Wilson, makes its inaugural appearance in the upper left corner on this poster. It appeared on virtually every Family Dog poster after this.
This poster is extremely rare and...

Darryl Richarde Just an absolute groovy poster ....obscure choice of subject. ...

An enormous Uncle Sam is pictured here as the central image on this "Poster From The Past" His elbows are resting on a globe while he is watching a fleet of ships and airplanes moving toward a much smaller man viewed from the rear. That man is wearing a red jacket with a yellow dragon on the back and is obviously a symbol of the Orient. In the background are numerous factory buildings with smoke pouring out from smokestacks. Looks like some sort of cold war propaganda. But who knows what the artists had in mind!? This poster was a...

Nan Lozito Rosenberg New Riders of the Purple Sage signed concert poster. The date was Sunday, October 20, 2013 (not the 21st). I was able to meet the band after as they were signing the posters. I had four members sign (Buddy Cage was ill and on the bus after the show). I traded my signed poster for one that Buddy Cage signed from the bus, while the others signed in the lobby.
Nan Lozito Rosenberg David Nelson is signing my poster. You can see the other three band members in the picture. Buddy Cage was on the bus, but he had signed a number of posters there.
Kevin Walsh That first name should be Wilfried, not William. Satty was German.

Despite the fact that this beautiful piece just happens to be a favorite of mine, there isn't really much to say about it other than WOW....."It REALLY Rocks"! A person's profile appears here surrounded by another fine example of Psychedelica from the mind of Master rock poster artist Wes Wilson. This time it IS quite legible though.
More than any other, this "Poster From The Past" is quite vulnerable to fading from light exposure and most that you run across appear to be a very light blue/gray. Very few survive with the vivid blue background color intact. Due to...

This "Poster From The Past" was designed by the Famous rock artist John Van Hamersveld, who was one of the people who helped form the Southern California psychedelic scene. Van Hamersveld was a founding partner in the Pinnacle Production Company, which was one of the first organizations to put on rock concerts and dances in the Los Angeles area. Most of these Pinnacle shows were held at the Shrine Auditorium and the early posters created for these shows are now highly sought after.
It was 49 years ago back in 1968 that the Jefferson Airplane along with Charlie Musselwhite,...

Mark Caywood Hey, Prof, yer knockin' the frisbee outta the park today! Moscoso and now Van Hamersveld?! Two of the masters! As you know, John VH also did some of the greatest album covers in history, including one of my favorites, WCPAEB vol iii. Btw: he's still working and just as great. Xo M ✌🎼
Rudy Koziolek This image is sublime. It magnifies the light in my life simply to possess (will that word get me in trouble on the internet?) ....for my eyes to behold this poster. It is SO affirmative for the likes of me .... of not only the spiritual epitome of 60s San Francisco and a lifestyle that many of us continue to strive to keep alive today, but also graphic, artistic evidence of, and our generations' brotherly respect for the nobility of indigenous style and culture. Thank you again Professor.
