N.p. N.p., 1965. Original poster for the 1965 tour by Joan Baez and Bob Dylan. This poster given by Baez to Tisha Fein, longtime talent coordinator and producer for the Grammy's, with Fein's holograph notation to the verso: "Joan Baez gave me this when we did her Midnight Special tribute—Tisha Fein." A musical variety series, "The Midnight Special" aired on NBC from 1973-1981 and featured many live performances, a rarity for television of that era. Baez appeared on the show several times, and met Fein during the taping of her season three appearance in 1976.
The poster was designed by friend, artist, and fellow folk musician Eric Von Schmidt for Baez and Dylan's joint 1965 tour. Dylan reportedly disliked the poster, and only a very few were ever issued before it was shelved, making it one of the scarcer 60's music posters and Dylan items on the market. A key piece of 60's iconography, still being reproduced on posters and T-shirts, with a great association.
12.5 x 19.25 inches, with the blank at the top of the poster trimmed. Near Fine, with a bruise to the upper left corner, shallow diagonal creasing to the bottom right, and only a light amount of the fading that is endemic to this poster. Archivally matted and framed, with Fein's note visible via a cut-out on the verso of the frame.
