Avid 1960's poster collector Andrew Hawley, from Vintage Rock Posters, announces his search for vintage 1963 Bob Dylan Newark, New Jersey Mosque Theater concert posters. According to Hawley, “Dylan first big concert was only six months earlier at TownHall in New York City. He was an artist’s artist with many top acts like Pete Seeger and Peter, Paul and Mary have great success with Dylan songs. The Mosque Theater concert in New Jersey was his first foray into New Jersey. The show was not a sellout. His songs were popular, but folk fans were not familiar with the artist yet.”
Hawley continues, “The Mosque Theater promoter was Moe Septee who was an early promoter of 1960s folk and rock acts. The poster is unique because it incorporated newspaper and magazine quotes in its layout to hype the Dylan concert. Septee borrowed this technique from Harold Leventhal who used quotes in the poster that promoted Dylan’s first big exclusive show at the TownHall in New York in April, 1963. The poster was designed by the New York based printer Murray Poster Printing Company. The boxing style poster was 14x22 inches and printed on thick cardboard. The imaged used on the poster is a typical Dylan promo photo used on many other concert posters.”
Hawley is willing to pay $5,000 cash for this or any other original 1962-1966 Bob Dylan boxing style concert poster. Any condition would be accepted. Please call 310-346-1965 or email andrew at vintageconcertposterbuyer.com.
