Original 1st printing 16&3/4 x 21&3/4" concert/event poster for the Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival, held at Griffin Hollow Amphitheater on the campus of St. Clair College in Windsor, Ontario, Canada from 9/6-8/1974.
Design by Gary Kell (Rainbow Graphics), image is featured in the Art of Rock on page 397 (plate 4.199).

Medium-thin glossy stock poster is in FANTASTIC near mint (A-/B+ to B+) condition; aside from a few stray fingerprints/light handling dings, a tiny 1/4" puncture tear in the lower left margin and a tiny bend in the top right corner tip, it is a nearly-unbeatable example of the '74 Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz poster.
GREAT "Payback"-era James Brown photo on this one.
