    Description

    Alan Freed Freeport High School Gym Concert Poster (1956). Very Rare. Window card printed on card stock for a show on Friday May 4 "Rock 'n' Roll / with / Allan [sic] Freed / at the / Freeport Fling", Long Island. The poster features a classic three-quarter length image of Freed and announces "Music by / "Big Al" / Sears". Measures 14" x 22". In Very Good Plus condition with two horizontal creases across the lower left corner, some minor wear to edges and corners, slight surface loss to lower right corner, general toning.

    We believe this is one of only two known examples of this poster, and the only stand-alone poster featuring Freed, that we have ever come across. An amazing poster featuring the Dee-jay who is credited with coining the phrase "Rock 'N Roll"!
