The poster shows photos of each singer. Printed by "Woolever Press Los Angeles, Calif." Measures 14" x 22". In Very Good condition with three heavy fold creases horizontally and one vertically. There is some stray printing ink, particularly to "BLUES". Pinholes to top corners and wear and toning to borders.
