Soul artists photos posters

Recommended Posts

There's 4 types of soul pics thay can be worth framing ....

1/ Gig posters (many being printed up by a Baltimore company)  -- most of these were full colour.

2/ Posters showing artists pictures made to sell to fans (shown in above link).

3/ Promotional photos of groups/ artists organised / printed off back in the day by their record companies or management to hand out to bookers (who would then use them to promote live shows or to us in newspaper ads for those shows).

4/ Old printed sheet music sheets (US or UK).

With regard to the promo photo shots of acts .... a big find was turned up about 8 or so years back when a filing cabinet from a Baltimore booking agent was discovered that held 100's of such photos sent out in the 60's / 70's. Some artists pics were in the horde in multiples. The guy who found them, auctioned em off on Evilbay & made a tidy sum. I believe quite a few of the photos ended up over here in the UK.

Other good items that look great framed & hung on the wall ... old soul tour programmes (both the front covers & the inside page bios / pics) ....

Other items I've had a while & have been meaning to get framed up ... old live show artist contracts for shows staged in the UK ... I've got some Twisted Wheel ones, one for the Imperial Ballroom, Nelson + one for Ike & Tina Turner when they played Wigan Casino (+Bolton Casino) on the same night ... these old contracts look especially good as they were always done on coloured paper (yellow, pink, blue, etc) ....   no idea why I've hung onto the Casino one as I never attended the club & didn't rate it (being from an earlier era).
