    Paul Revere & The Raiders 1965 Concert Poster Upon the Release of "Just Like Me".
    An original cardboard window card advertising the fast-rising Paul Revere and The Raiders in Salem, Oregon on Saturday night, December 4, 1965. This poster's as much fun as the group itself. "Come early!" it says, but "Dress Up: School Clothes." Hard to tell if that's a suggestion or an admonition. Advance tickets were $2.00, available at two locations.

    Lovely four-color poster segueing from blue to red to green over a white backdrop. Hilarious, corny, early publicity photo of the band doing a pile-on with Revere himself at the top of the heap, mimicking Washington crossing the Delaware. And how about that slug line just below their name, which matches the photo nicely? "Wildest Sound For Miles Around." Indeed they were, which nationwide TV audiences would see for themselves when PR&R became the house band on ABC's Where the Action Is TV show.

    This concert happened just moments before the group took off for the moon. Six song titles are given at the bottom, all having been released as singles on the powerhouse Columbia Records, but none of which broke them through. Some were definitely regional hits in the Pacific NW, however, and helped build their ascent to stardom.

    Now check this out: In December 1965, Paul Revere & The Raiders' new single was "Just Like Me," which would finally break them through nationally and make them stars. That 45 first entered the Billboard magazine singles chart in the issue dated December 4, 1965... the exact date of this concert poster. Now how is that for just the most amazing career timing and serendipity? Pretty much makes this rare poster unique, and BTW, the only one we've ever seen.

    Measures the standard 14x22" and is in lovely, unused, Near Mint condition with only the slightest of tiny corner bumps having occurred in the last half-century. COA from Heritage Auctions..
