    Trans Continental Pop Festival Original Concert Poster (1970). If you happened to catch the recent DVD release "Festival Express," you know the story of the five-day train journey through Canada in 1970, with a diverse group of rock musicians including Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead, the Band, Buddy Guy, and others, as they traveled from Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, and on to Winnipeg, as part of a rolling Rock Festival and non-stop party. This is an extremely scarce poster for two Calgary shows, and is in Excellent condition. These shows were known for out-of-control protests over ticket prices that nearly derailed the entire event; the fact that posters for the show still survive is remarkable in itself, let alone this one in such perfect condition! The concert was a rare event, and so is this opportunity to own this poster. Do not let it slip away!
