San Francisco, California (PRWEB) March 24, 2016
Avid collector, Andrew Hawley from Vintage Rock Posters, announces his search for original 1965 Eric Von Schmidt, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez concert posters. Eric Von Schmidt donated this poster to honor the joint Dylan and Baez tour that year. During their joint tour, Dylan and Baez played in Philadelphia, New Haven, Newark, Ottawa, and ending with two shows in Pittsburg. According to Hawley, "1965 was a transformative year for Bob Dylan. With the release of two albums, he was moving away from Baez's shadow and becoming a leading folk music hero on his own merit. Dylan took a sharp turn in July that rocked the folk music world when he went electric at the Newport Folk Festival. In November, he married his first wife Sara Lowndes under an oak tree on Long Island. It is rumored that Dylan did not like the Toulouse-Lautrec like poster. This is not surprising since the poster probably a step behind what was going on is Dylan's life and music direction in 1965."
Hawley adds, "The Eric Von Schmidt Dylan and Baez is a beautiful 14 x 20 inch concert poster. Von Schmidt's initials are printed on the lower left side. The colors are rich with an art deco appeal. The poster can be faded if it had been left in the sun. Only the New Haven concert on March 6th has venue information printed in the top area. Smaller handbills were printed as well. It is assumed that the Dylan and Baez poster blanks exist in each of the cities they were sent to advertise for the upcoming concerts."
