    Big Brother and the Holding Company - Peter Albin Signed Concert Contract, The Psychedelic Supermarket, Boston, February 23 & 24, 1968. Dated January 19, 1968, this three-page APA contract is for two shows per night for two days, the fee being $4000 against 50% of the total gross. Signed by George Papadopolous for the venue and Peter S. Albin (twice) for the band. This gig was part of their first East Coast tour. In the book On the Road with Janis Joplin by Road Manager John Byrne Cook, this show is mentioned: "...Big Brother plays at the Psychedelic Supermarket in Boston. The Supermarket is as close as you can get to a San Francisco rock-and-roll ballroom on the East Coast, and it's a reasonable facsimile. Janis and the boys feel more at home here than they did at the Anderson Theater, with its fixed seats. The audience fills the dance floor and Big Brother plays a spirited set, happy to feel something like their hometown connection to the dancers." Horizontal folds, Fine condition.

    Provenance: The Peter Albin Collection.
