    Paul Ray and the Cobras/Jimmy Vaughan "Valentine's Dance" Concert Poster (Armadillo World Headquarters, 1977) Hold on to your hats, Stevie Ray fans! This could be the Holy Grail of all SRV posters! Paul Ray and the Cobras were a popular Austin blues band when 22 year-old Stevie Ray Vaughan joined on guitar in 1976. This rare poster is from '77, and it features the very first known photo of Stevie on a concert poster! It predates the famous April, '77 poster featuring Stevie's hand-written "Rome Inn" info (a copy of which is also featured in this sale) by two months, and features pictures of Stevie Ray with the Cobras, plus a shot of him with big brother Jimmie Vaughan and Kim Wilson of the (Fabulous) Thunderbirds. Incredible! The poster, printed in brown ink on beige card stock, is in VG condition, with water stains and numerous tack holes. Try and find a better one -- it won't be easy!
