 ITEM DESCRIPTION

 Original 1st printing (LARGE edition) 18&7/8 x 34&7/8" concert/event poster for the first and only Monterey International Pop Festival, held at the Monterey (CA) Fairgrounds Arena (and surrounding area) from 6/16-18/1967. Art by Tom Wilkes, image is featured in the Art of Rock on page 258 (plate 3.5). While no acts are listed, the now-legendary three day event featured performances by the Association, Laura Nyro, Lou Rawls, Hugh Masekela, Eric Burdon and the Animals, the Byrds, the Blues Project, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Electric Flag, Moby Grape, Country Joe & the Fish, the Blues Project, Steve Miller Band, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Al Kooper, the Paupers, Simon & Garfunkel, Johnny Rivers, the Mamas & the Papas, Canned Heat, Big Brother & the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin), Otis Redding with the Bar-Kays and Booker T. & the MG's, Ravi Shankar, the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, the Who and the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Thick foil-coated index stock poster is in excellent (B+) condition; a tiny amount of wear (a tiny "nip" with a little soft fraying) in the top left corner tip, a few small vertical stress bends (mostly along the left side, several of them are quite well-camouflaged), a few tiny handling creases and bends around the edges and a couple of stray surface dings/scratches, but I honestly have to say that this is probably one of the best-looking (conditionally) examples I have EVER seen. Most of these are in very compromised shape with numerous conditional issues, this one has NO holes, tears, heavy creases or anything like that... an absolutely GORGEOUS-looking specimen of the large Monterey. Since the ENTIRE thing was filmed (by D.A. Pennebaker), we can now enjoy this playlist of about 40 or so assorted clips;
