Description

Offered are a pair of vintage R&B/soul broadsides that are as impressive as the cast of names they depict. Produced by the Globe Poster Company, these 35x22 heavy stock broadsides once adorned the Stanton Theatre of Baltimore, displaying an array of colors with concert information as well as images of the upcoming performers. The 1964 example is headlined by Red Foxx, Otis Redding, Mary Wells and Gladys Knight and the Pips, while its 1965 counterpart features The Marvelettes, Gladys Knight, Jackie Wilson and The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Both broadsides show vertical folds and varying degrees of moisture toning, as well as edge and surface wear associated with venue-displays. The 1964 example also shows a seven-inch tear on the middle of the bottom edge. Nonetheless, these elusive broadsides are complete and feature very aesthetically pleasing fronts. Loaded with Soul and R&B icons, these vibrant broadsides are more than deserving of a little Respect
