This vintage piece was designed by Canadian artist Bob Masse. Masse is one of rock's most seasoned and prolific poster artists. He is perhaps best known in the collecting world for his design of the July 1967 Grateful Dead concert at Vancouver's Agradome. His work has been hunted by collectors for decades and remains one of the most celebrated artists of the era.

Also featured with Big Brother in the lineup on this Cheetah poster are the Blue-Eyed Soul masters from Memphis The Box Tops. The week of these shows in Venice their hit single Cry Like a Baby was released and sold a million copies.

The historic Cheetah Club was one of the hottest places to play if you were an up & coming band in the late sixties. Frank Zappa discovered the Alice Cooper Band there in 1967 and signed them to his label. Buffalo Springfield and Pink Floyd also performed there. This was the second appearance by Big Brother & Janis at the legendary venue.

Condition details: creasing, handling, tape on back, toning.
