Velvet Underground – Sterling Morrison-Owned 1968 Shrine LA ‘Last Minute’ Concert Handbill
A scarce handbill for the Velvet Underground, Butterfield Blues Band, Sly & The Family Stone and the Rockets (pre-Crazy Horse) at LA’s Shrine Auditorium July 12-13, 1968, from the legendary archive of the late Velvets’ guitarist Sterling Morrison.
The design of the original color psychedelic poster made to promote this Pinnacle-produced show rendered the band names virtually impossible-to-read (see second scan, for reference only.) As a result, the promoters had to make this rare and extremely legible black and white “last minute” handbill, noting the show was “This Fri. and Sat.”
In near mint condition, with only a flattened crease to the upper right corner. With a letter of authenticity from Sterling Morrison’s widow, Martha Morrison, noting it was part of Sterling Morrison’s collection, and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
A scarce handbill for what must have been an AMAZING show, with wonderful provenance.
