Description

    Grateful Dead Memorial Concert Poster, Carousel Ballroom (1968). A striking "skull" design by Alton Kelly makes this Carousel Ballroom poster a favorite for Deadheads. We can't say for sure who the "Memorial" was for - certainly not Ron "Pigpen" McKernan (who passed away in 1973), as we erroneously reported in an earlier description. This poster is not part of any numbered series but bears the designation A.O.R. 2.160, for where the poster appears in the book "The Art of Rock." Also on the bill was Charlie Musselwhite and Petris. The days of the week across the top of this poster have been blackened out with ink (this appears to be the result of a typo, as the actual concert dates were in 1968, not '69, as these dates would imply; this does little to detract from the beauty of this 14" x 22" poster. With no tack holes, and just some minor creases, this very rare poster grades VG++.
