In this lot we are offering a beautiful and scarce Grande poster.

Early posters from the Grande are hard to find in any condition so even a lower grade copy like this is in  high demand from collectors.

The Spirit of Love was the Theme for this pair of  shows at the Grande. The Poor Souls Who we are Frut of The Loom Southbound Freeway and Passing Clowns were the performers over these two nights at the Grande in March of 1967. 

Many of the bands from this period that appeared at the Grande have clearly eluded the history books. Regardless of the lack of pedigree with these acts the posters themselves serve as incredible historical documents from a powerful period in music and culture.
