DescriptionCaptain Beefheart & His Magic Band 1972 Irvine, CA Rick Griffin Concert Poster (AOR-4.125). An original Rick Griffin-designed concert poster for Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band performing in Crawford Hall at the University of California at Irvine on Saturday night, October 28, 1972. Opening act was the Portable People.
This was the same month that Beefheart released his seventh studio album, Clear Spot, on Warner Bros./Reprise Records, initially in a clear plastic sleeve.
Measures 14" x 20" and grades to Near Mint Minus condition. The center artwork is untouched, but there's a small amount of creasing in a couple of places in the black. Most notable is the lower right corner area, in two places, under "Griffin" and in the corner itself, which reveals just a microscopic white hairline. There's also mild creasing in the black margin area to the left of "Oct." COA from Heritage Auctions.
