    Blues Guitarist Otis Rush 1957 "First Texas Tour" Concert Poster Tour Blank. An original cardboard window card from 1957 for blues guitarist Otis Rush on "His First Texas Tour," easily identified to '57 by the song titles given. Rush was a wonderful left-handed guitarist who recorded in the 1950's for Cobra Records in Chicago.

    This was a "tour blank" poster, printed ahead of time by artist management or the national promoter, and then filled in at the top by local promoters with their own city-by-city concert date, venue and ticket information. This particular poster could not have been used for long, because it was obviously restricted to use in just one state - Texas.

    Measures 14" x 22" and grades to Very Good condition. Tack holes in upper left and lower right corners, complete with thumbtack rings; the other two corners have been restored and lack the tack holes, but still have typical light creases. Some surface grime and toning throughout. COA from Heritage Auctions.
