This is an odd and interesting handbill from the incredible hand of psychedelic master Lee Conklin and it's the FIRST appearance of the handbill to appear in our auction! This marvelous piece promoted a June 1969 run of shows featuring Country Weather at The Barn in Rio Nido. The artist also created one of his most desirable and valuable posters of the genre for a Grateful Dead show that occurred 1 week later and was at this same venue. 

 

A Mint example of the POSTER for this issue realized $1725 in our August 2018 auction. This ORIGINAL HANDBILL offers the same popular and iconic art for less than the First Print poster currently commands! An extremely scarce issue seldom surfaces at public auctions in ANY condition. This example is in very clean condition with no tears or pinholes! See details below.
