    Sam Cooke + Nine Others 1961 Rockland Palace, New York City Concert Handbill. A cool blue & white advertising flyer for "10 Fabulous Star Attractions" headlined by Sam Cooke at New York City's Rockland Palace in the summer of 1961. Other attractions included Maxine Brown, Chuck Jackson, the Jive Five, the Olympics, Little Anthony of the Imperials, and more. "This is the big one!" it says across the top. "Kick-off dawn dance of the season." They even call it a "Breakfast Dance." They truly rocked until dawn!

    Sam was in the middle of his amazing career at this point, with past hits already including "You Send Me," "Wonderful World" and "Chain Gang." Presently, he was just coming off his famous hit "Cupid," plugged on the handbill between his two names. And then right after this, Sam would enjoy nine straight Top 10 R&B hits, including "Twistin' the Night Away," "Bring It on Home to Me," "Send Me Some Lovin'" and "Another Saturday Night."

    Measures 8 1/2" x 11" and grades to Mint condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
