DescriptionFD-D18 The Doors 1967 Denver, Colorado Rick Griffin Concert Poster. A second-printing concert poster for The Doors, Allmen Joy and Gingerbred Blue playing at the Family Dog's Denver location on Friday thru Sunday nights, December 29-31, 1967. This poster is known as FD-D18 in the Family Dog numbered series and actually has two nicknames: "Pay Attention" (after what the alien's holding) and "Space Man" (yes, after the alien himself).
This is the second printing of this very popular poster, identifiable by the Family Dog triangle in the upper left corner having a black background. First printings are all red up in that triangle.
Anything for the Doors in 1967 is pretty great, of course, and their LP Strange Days was sitting at #9 on Billboard's album chart this week. Their latest single, "Love Me Two Times," had also come out earlier in December.
Sometimes people think that the second-billed Allmen Joy were Gregg and Duane Allman opening for the Doors, but that's not the case. The two bands coexisted at the same time, but Gregg and Duane spelled their group with an "a," as in, "Allman Joy." The Allmen Joy was an entirely different outfit.
Measures 12 5/8" x 21 3/4" and grades to Very Good Plus condition, for some edge creasing in the lower left area which doesn't break the purple color, and a bumped and creased lower left corner. Also a couple of other very light surface creases in the upper left corner area. COA from Heritage Auctions.
