    Bo Diddley/Etta James Memorial Auditorium Concert Poster (1955). Extremely Rare. Oversized window card printed in green, red and black on card stock for "Top 10 Rhythm & Blues Review 1955 Fall Edition" 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 Williams Big Band. Printed by Globe Poster, Baltimore Measures 22" x 28.5". In Very Good Plus condition with some minor printer's ink smudges, minor wear to edges and corners, some toning.

    This red/green combination is an unusual design for a Globe poster of this era. The line-up features three Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductees: Bo Diddley, Big Joe Turner and Etta James. Heritage sold an example of this poster in March, 2017 for $8,750. See Sale 7157, lot 89222.
