    Description

    Barry Manilow 1975 Wilkes-Barre, PA Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising pop star Barry Manilow appearing at the local college gym in Wilkes-Barre, PA on Sunday evening, October 12, 1975.

    Barry had just become a major attraction at this time. Under the auspices of record executive Clive Davis, Manilow had already struck gold three times with "Mandy," "It's a Miracle" and "Could It Be Magic." His very next single would be the biggest of his career: "I Write the Songs," released in November. (That hit was written by Beach Boy Bruce Johnston, by the way.)

    Measures 13 5/8" x 21 1/2" and grades to Very Good Minus condition. Multiple pin holes and creasing in all four corners, with the vertical creasing severe in the upper right. A two-inch tear from the edge above "Sun." has been seamlessly mended. This was probably a college print-shop project, perhaps with silkscreened red, white and yellow, so allowances have to be made for that. Dirty scuffs over Barry Manilow's white name. Hard to tell if the uneven left edge is the result of chipping, or was made that way by careless students. Either way, it feels charmingly homemade yet oh-so-official. COA from Heritage Auctions.
