    Description

    Ike & Tina Turner Revue 1967 Hot Pink & Yellow Day-Glo Concert Poster (AOR-1.72). An original cardboard window card for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue at the Exhibition Gardens in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for two shows on Friday night, March 3, 1967.

    This wild, red-and-yellow-flames design was used by Ike & Tina through much of the 60's to tremendous effect. Calling themselves "The World's Most Exciting Show" in the headline, they needed a poster design to match, and they pretty much hit a home run with this wildly popular look. The Day-Glo colors just reach out and grab you, and all the sunbursts, circles, different type fonts and many song titles give the window card a strong feeling of action.

    Poster measures a pleasurably oversized 17 x 28 1/4" and grades to Very Good condition. COA from Heritage Auctions. Literature: See Grushkin, Paul, The Art of Rock: Posters from Presley to Punk, Abbeville Press, New York, 1987, p.48 (illus., from a different city).


    More Information: A real nice added attraction of this 1967 version of the poster is the prominent song title "River Deep - Mountain High," their Phil Spector-produced classic that Rolling Stone magazine ranked at #33 on its list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time." Even Spector himself considers it his best work, and in 1999 it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. On the charts it barely made a whimper in America, but it went all the way to #3 in England, and is considered an influential masterpiece. And this is the only Ike & Tina Turner concert poster you'll find it mentioned on.

    Condition details: One pinhole in each upper corner; the bottom corners have 3-4 staple holes each. Also about half-a-dozen tiny staple holes in the flames around "River Deep Mountain High," but very unobtrusive. Even more unobtrusive are about a dozen sets of staple holes down both sides of the poster, mostly in the artwork, but barely a factor. This includes in the yellow under "TT" and to the right of "Show!," and in the pink "I" in "Ike" and last "R" in "Turner." These things are so little that you might not see them until you look at the poster several times (what happened with us). Also a single pinhole above the "Any Thing" circle. Upper right corner has a 2 ¾" crease, intersecting the top of "S" in "Gardens," and a smaller one about 1 ½". Lower right corner is dinged which crumples the Colby Poster printing credit a little bit, and there's also a three-inch vertical crease in that corner's white margin.
