Seller ID: 16729

This is a flyer or handbill or small window poster for a performance by Jimmie Lunceford at the Alhambra Theatre in Campbellsville, Kentucky. I date the poster to around 1935.

An original jumbo Globe Posters window card printed in the summer of 1955 for a blockbuster 12-act R&B concert tour overloaded with talent.

And that wasn't hype: the dozen acts on this poster combined for a staggering SEVENTY-THREE Top 10 R&B hits in their careers. Top Ten! If you wanted to cite the Top 20 instead, that number reaches up over 100. If you listened to the radio at all and this show came to your town, how could... View more info

Chick Webb, Ella Fitzgerald, Handbill, 1935

By: (Chick Webb)

Price: $250.00

Publisher: San Francisco, Alcazar Ballroom: ca. 1935

Seller ID: 16734


This is a handbill or flyer for Chick Webb's N. B. C. Orchestra featuring Ella Fitzgerald in a performance at the Alcazar Ballroom in San Francisco, probably in 1935 or 1936. Ella Fitzgerald, age 16, had joined Webb's band in 1935, and Webb died in 1939. Some say that Webb actually adopted Fitzgerald, but this idea seems to be unfounded. At any rate, Webb realized the genius of Fitzgerald and featured her as a singer. Webb himself suffered from a congenital spine disease but still became an important jazz drummer and assembled an orchestra that frequently "cut" bands of Count Basie and... View more info

This color, 8X10, publicity photograph has only light wear in the bottom margin. Near fine. Dee Mullins was an unusual country singer in Nashville in the 1960's and 70's. Despite a good voice and good songs, he never had a great deal of success. Born Dwight Mullinaux in Gafford, Texas on April 7, 1937, (d. 1991) country singer Dee Mullins must have raised a few eyebrows among the Old Boys Club in the Country Music establishment when he hooked up with Shelby Singleton's Nashville-based SSS International Records (later re-named Plantation when it became a Sun subsidiary) in the late 1960s and be...
