The Rock and Roll Pop Art Auction
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
It has that classic boxing style concert poster look, and though letterpress printed on cardboard, it is not a concert poster. Especially made to promote Redding's release of his self-penned "RESPECT", a song that would catapult Aretha Franklin to stardom in 1967. Future Capricorn Records boss Phil Walden represented Redding and together they created their own business empire in the mid-60's. The partnership came to an end with Redding's tragic death in 1967. We're aware of only a few examples of this cardboard poster; one is at the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in Redding's hometown of Macon and another at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Printed by Globe Posters of Baltimore, Maryland, 22" x 30.5", EX. Estimate $6,000-$10,000.
