    Description

    Temptations, Martha & the Vandellas 1967 San Francisco, CA Handbill. An original paper concert flyer advertising three huge hitmakers of the 60's and 70's playing at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco: The Temptations, Martha & the Vandellas and the 5th Dimension. The date was Sunday night, March 26, 1967, and a fourth act, The Kinfolks, is not pictured.

    If you look closely at the musical staffs for the top two groups, several hit song titles are listed in small red letters amongst the musical notes. Clever touch! Saves us the trouble of listing them. The 5th Dimension have no songs listed because they were new on the scene; their first hit, the Top 20 "Go Where You Wanna Go," was just exiting the charts at the time of this show. But they were just three months away from their super-smash, "Up, Up and Away."

    This red, white & blue handbill measures 8 1/2" x 11" and grades to Very Good condition. This flyer was once folded down into eighths or tenths, but has been stored flat for decades and none of the front's color was broken. It was once posted with some kind of adhesive on the verso in four different places, and that material is no longer there, but it left four moisture-deformed small areas that are also visible on the front: around "Sunday / Winterland / Post & Steiner," in the Temps' and 5th Dimension photos, and then harmlessly in the white under "Kinfolks." The areas on the verso are not sticky in the slightest, just rough to the touch. A slightly nudged upper left corner, and slight toning to the piece overall. COA from Heritage Auctions.
