Andrew Hawley, from Vintage Rock Posters, is a serious collector of vintage 1950's and 1960's rock ‘n’ roll concert posters. Hawley announces his search for 1960's Fillmore Era concert posters. Fillmore rock posters are more about an era of music verses a particular poster layout or graphic style. According to Hawley, “Fillmore Era concert posters represent the heyday of the 1960s rock scene and advertise concerts of the top acts such as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones. These rock concert posters were printed in small quantities (500 or less) and hung locally to advertise the shows. The posters varied in size and style ranging from psychedelic to the straightforward boxing style poster. A boxing style poster has a simple layout that features an artist name along side a photograph and the song titles of their latest hits. The psychedelic posters made their debut in the late 1960's and came out of the San Francisco Bay music scene.”
Hawley adds, “Most Fillmore Era rock concert posters were printed locally. The Bindweed Press based in San Francisco was a leading psychedelic poster printer. Baltimore’s Globe Posters were known for printing garish color boxing style posters. Globe Posters stared in 1929 and is still in business. For decades, they printed boxing style posters for vaudeville acts, movie theaters, burlesque houses, and boxing events held in the south, midwest and the east coast. In the 1950s, they started printing posters for rock acts.”
Hawley is searching for original 1960s Fillmore Era posters for The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin, and the Rolling Stones. Hawley pays $3,000 cash for these vintage concert posters. If you happen to have one these relics, please call 310-346-1965 or email Hawley at andrew(at)vintageconcertposterbuyer(dot)com.
