1958 Alan Freed

1958 Alan Freed "The Big Beat" Handbill

The finest rock handbill you will ever see and one of two specimens known to exist. You will drool over this "All In Person Show" with "17 Top Attractions…Four Great Bands…Cast of 60." The acts reads like a who's who of early rock: Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly & The Crickets, Chuck Berry, Frankie Lymon, The Diamonds, Danny & The Juniors, Billie & Lillie, Billy Ford & The Thunderbirds, The Chantels, Larry Williams & Orchestra, Screaming Jay Hawkins, The Pastels, Jo Ann Campbell, Ed Townsend, Dickey Doo & The Don'ts, plus Alan Freed & His Coral Records Big Rocking Band starring Sam the Man Taylor. Venue is the Orpheum Theater in Madison, Wisconsin. Dated, Wednesday April 23, 1958 it is 6x9". Some very light underlining of band names o/w EX-MT. It has peerless colors and a brilliant overall look. The full size version of this poster recently brought $16,000+ at auction. When you make it to heaven (hopefully) these acts are going to be the guys at the pearly gates. Just in case, bring the handbill
