    Description

    Arlo Guthrie, Linda Ronstadt 1974 Honolulu, Hawaii Concert Poster. An original paper concert poster from Honolulu, Hawaii advertising a double-bill of Arlo Guthrie "plus the rockin' country blues of Linda Ronstadt" playing together at the Waikiki Shell on Thursday night, July 18, 1974.

    A lovely red, white & blue motif enhances the appeal of this poster selling tickets for the two household names. Actually, Ronstadt was not there yet... you might be thinking, "How could she be second-billed in the mid-70's?" Well, she didn't blow up until the end of this year. At this point, summer of '74, she had never cracked the Top 20 singles chart as a solo artist, nor had an album enter into the Top 40. It would all change in December with the release of Heart Like a Wheel and its #1 single "You're No Good," the biggest hit of her career.

    Things in Hawaii have always been more casual than the mainland, and concerts were no exception. "A Sunbum Poster" it says at the bottom, identifying a common and popular concert-poster designer in the islands. And look how much fun they had with their Arlo description under his name.

    Printed on thin white paper and measures 16 1/2" x 22 3/4" and grades to Very Good Plus condition with a horizontal crease across the center at the bottom of the blue box which intersects nothing important and breaks no color, creases to the two upper corners and overall toning. The seven holes in the bottom white margin are not tack holes or damage, they're "pull marks" from the printing press. COA from Heritage Auctions.
