Description
Hank Ballard & The Midnighters 1963 Jumbo Concert Poster. An original, vintage cardboard window card for these Rock-and-Roll Hall-of-Famers appearing at the Meadow Acres Ballroom in Topeka, Kansas on Sunday, July 28, 1963. This three-color poster (black, red and white) advertised Ballard and his backing band by playing up their two Top 10 R&B hits from 1960, "The Twist" and "Finger Poppin' Time." Chubby Checker famously took "The Twist" to #1 on the pop charts on two separate occasions, in both 1960 and 1961. So it behooved the promoters to make sure the public knew that Ballard both wrote the song and released it first. Not realizing the song's potential, the Midnighters first released it merely as a B-side in 1959. When they came back the next year and made it an A-side, it went Top 10 R&B... but they just missed the boat. Chubby's simultaneous 1960 release changed the world. A fun poster with a dynamic design, featuring all four musicians having a great time dancing, all with one foot off the ground. In fact, we're guessing Hank was cut out of the group shot down below and his image moved up top. Special note to poster collectors who enjoy learning about the production process of these things. Notice how the venue information up top is quite undersized compared to the space it's set in. That's because, for whatever reason, the printing plate for a standard 14" x 22" window card was simply shifted over and used on this 22" x 27" board. They didn't bother to re-size the venue information for the bigger poster. I guess we can understand them thinking, "Why bother?" The needed information was still there and fully readable, so completely functional; and like all vintage concert posters, this was just going to be thrown away on the Monday morning after the concert. Or so they thought... Measures 22" x 27" and grades to Very Good Plus condition. Basically in very crisp, lovely shape, but the four corners were repaired (with patching now only visible on the verso) and there's a ¾" edge tear to the right of "In Person." Also a couple of edge nicks to the left of Hank Ballard's feet, and some tape residue and lifts on the verso. COA from Heritage Auctions. HID03101062020 © 2020 Heritage Auctions | All Rights Reserved
