    FD-84 The Doors, Captain Beefheart 1967 Family Dog Poster Signed by Artist and Graded 9.6. A second-printing Family Dog Denver concert poster for The Doors, Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band and Lothar & the Hand People playing in Denver, Colorado on Friday and Saturday nights, September 29 and 30, 1967. Known as FD-84 (D-4) in the Family Dog numbered series and nicknamed "Flash," this poster was signed by the poster's creator, Bob Schnepf, in silver pen down in the lower right corner, and subsequently graded Near Mint Plus 9.6 by CGC (the Certified Guaranty Company).

    By the fall of 1967, the Doors had made a national name for themselves with the #1 hit "Light My Fire" that summer. Their debut album with that track, an underground radio sensation, was still #3 on Billboard's album chart at the time of this show.

    And yet, Elektra Records wasn't waiting. The band's second album, People Are Strange, had just been released to record stores a few days before this gig. And their follow-up single, "People Are Strange," would enter Billboard magazine's Hot 100 this very week as well, and eventually rise to #12.

    This very popular second-printing poster measures 14" x 20" and grades to CGC-graded Near Mint Plus 9.6 condition. Embellishing on that grade, we spotted a slight bump to upper left corner and an extremely subtle one to the upper right. COA from Heritage Auctions.
