    Description

    Nancy Wilson, Ramsey Lewis, Olatunji 1963 Buffalo, NY Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising song stylist Nancy Wilson, the Ramsey Lewis Trio and "sensational Afro percussionist" Olatunji in concert at Kleinhan's Music Hall in Buffalo, New York on Saturday night, September 14, 1963.

    This was actually the exact moment Capitol Records songstress Wilson starting charting singles on the Billboard magazine record charts. Her first one, "Tell Me the Truth," had just entered the Hot 100 three weeks before this show. Nancy would go on to chart singles into the early 70's.

    As for the Ramsey Lewis Trio, chart-wise they would hit paydirt two years hence with their biggest chart hit, "The 'In' Crowd," in the summer of 1965.

    Measures 14" x 22 1/4" and grades to Very Good condition. Upper corners have slight dings; lower left has a one-inch crease; and lower right has a horizontal crease that goes through "Niagara." Light brown toning to the white board, especially around the four margins. But the entire artwork section of the poster is great; that splotch in the blue under "Sept." is a printer's anomaly. COA from Heritage Auctions.
