The poster features a shot of the Haley and the band and announces "In Person / Bill Haley / and his / Comets / Of "Shake Rattle And Roll Fame / "Rock Around The Clock" "Razzle Dazzle" / And Many Other Famous Decca Recording Hits". Printed by Hatch Show Print, Nashville. Measures 14" x 22".

    Not just a sensational Bill Haley poster, but one that documents an important moment in the history of 20th century music. At this very show, in Lubbock, Texas, Buddy (Holly) and Bob (Montgomery) opened for Bill Haley (see pictured advert from Lubbock Morning Avalanche, October 14, 1955). They were spotted by a Nashville scout Eddie Crandell, who helped to get Holly his first ever recording contract with Decca Records.
