Velvet Underground – Sterling Morrison-Owned 1968 Hippodrome San Diego Metallic Handbill
A beautiful metallic ink handbill advertising the Velvet Underground and Quicksilver Messenger Service at the Hippodrome in San Diego, on July 5 & 6, 1968. This handbill is from the archive of the late Velvet Underground guitarist Sterling Morrison.
The Velvets were touring in support of their second album White Light/White Heat, released in January 1968. And Quicksilver had issued their self-titled debut only two months earlier–and as the tracks from their live album Happy Trails attest, they were on fire in 1968.
This rare handbill was a part of Sterling Morrison’s legendary archive, and was obtained directly from his widow Martha.
In virtually mint condition, with just a small ding to the top right corner. 5″ x 7″.
With a copy of Martha Morrison’s letter of authenticity, and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
