James Brown Nipsey Russell Newport 1969 Boxing Style Poster
Original 1st/only printing 17&1/2 x 24" boxing style silkscreen concert poster for the legendary James Brown (with the James Brown Show and Orchestra) with special guest, the one and only Nipsey Russell at Festival Field in Newport, RI on 7/6/1969.
Thick flat stock silkscreen poster is in good/decent (B to B/B-) condition; light toning, edge/corner wear (bending/creasing in all corners and a tiny nip out of the top left corner, a moderate amount of surface wear (moisture/splatter stains in the upper right corner, numerous scattered tiny smudges, etc.), otherwise fine. Printed on fairly hearty stock, this poster was obiviously meant to withstand some wear and tear. JB and Nipsey headlined the Sunday afternoon show of the infamous 1969 Newport Jazz Festival (a near-riot which featured Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck, Jethro Tull, Sly & the Family Stone and a bunch of rock bands). Ultra-uncommon JB poster with a simple, but very cool boxing-style graphic.
