    Description

    O.V. Wright 1970 Detroit, MI Jumbo Globe Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising southern soul singer O.V. Wright appearing at Mr. Kelley's Lounge in Detroit for a "Pre-Christmas Show and Dance" over the weekend of December 18-20, 1970.

    Wright's Top 20 R&B hit at the moment was "Ace of Spades," plugged on the poster. Globe nicely did up the holiday colors of red & green on this board, even throwing in holly leaves for good measure.

    Measures 22" x 30 5/8" and grades to Very Good Minus condition. Two major tears, one in the top venue box (down to the "D" in "Detroit") and the lower right corner (up into the "E" in "Revue"). Nail holes with paper missing at the top center edge (where the tear starts), above "Days - 3" and in the lower right corner. Some water staining and mildewing on the bottom left edge over to the center. Then the normal amount of surface creasing, staple holes, grime and scuffing. Surface scratch from the left of "O" down into the "W" of "Wright." The Day-Glo colors remain bright and bold. COA from Heritage Auctions.
