    Otis Redding Factory Concert Poster (Kaleidoscope Inc. Presents, 1967). For a show in Madison, Wisconsin, Sunday, 10 December, 1967. The support acts are the Bar Kays and the Grim Reapers. Measures 17" x 22". Accompanied by a letter of provenance. In Very Good condition with marks and discoloration to the lower border, remnants of adhesive tape to back of corners, some toning to edges generally.

    This incredible poster is also tinged with tragedy. Otis Redding was on his way to this show when the airplane he was traveling in crash landed into Lake Monona, just a few miles from its destination. Redding recorded his biggest hit "Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay" only four days before he died. The single was released posthumously, and went to no.1 on the Pop and R & B charts.

    This poster and those in lots 89304 and 89305 were obtained by an employee of the Factory club, who was allowed to take posters from the lobby following the show, with the permission of the owner.
