    Bo Diddley/Etta James Memorial Auditorium Concert Poster (1955). Extremely Rare. Window card printed in green, red and black on card stock for a "Top 10 Rhythm & Blues Review" in Chattanooga, TN on Tues. Sept. 27. This eye-catching poster shows photos of most of the acts on the bill, some with hit songs listed. Interestingly, there is no image for two of the headliners Bo Diddley (though with songs "I'm A Man" and 'Bo Diddley" listed) or Etta James and the Peaches. Other acts listed with photos include Fay Adams, The Clovers, Big Joe Turner, Bill Doggett, The Charms, and Paul James Big Band. Measures 22" x 28.5". In Very Good Plus condition, with diagonal crease to lower right corner, rubbing and wear to corners and edges, some toning, particularly to borders.

    This is a rare color combination for a concert poster. The line-up of acts is equally striking, with three Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductees featured: Bo Diddley, Big Joe Turner and Etta James.
