    Description

    Grateful Dead - Memorial Poster, Carousel Ballroom (1969). 1969 was a tough year for Rock and Roll. The Stones had deaths during their show at Altamont, and San Francisco's Grateful Dead lost their original keyboard player "Pigpen." This poster is from the show the Dead threw to celebrate the life of their fallen comrade. 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, but that does not detract from the beauty of this 14" x 22" poster. With no tackholes, and just some minor creases this very rare poster grades VG/EX.
