    Description

    Bobby "Blue" Bland 1966 Vancouver, B.C. Boxing-Style Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising R&B great Bobby "Blue" Bland performing at the Embassy Ballroom in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on Friday night, June 17, 1966. Vi Campbell, The Malibus, Emmett Davis and the Soul Brothers were part of his revue.

    Bland was right in the middle of four straight Top 10 R&B hits at this moment, but anyone who knows his track record won't even bat an eye at that. His new one this month was "Good Time Charlie," which rose to #6 in Billboard.

    This poster has the unusual feature of a white sticker at the top which changed (we assume) the venue, and possibly the city and time, too. The board measures 16" x 24 1/4" and grades to Very Good Plus condition. The only flaws on the front are a little tape residue to the left of Bobby's ear and general overall toning. Also a couple of red smudges down by the printers' credit. The verso has six instances of cello tape residue and some toning as well. COA from Heritage Auctions.
