MISCELLANEOUS STRANGE AND WONDROUS THINGS

Rolling Stones, 5/30/1990, Steel Wheels concert "the Rolling Stones on Fox"; advertising poster (like a newsrack poster), approx 7" x 14" on card stock with the Stones' "tongue" logo in bright green on an orange and blue background advertising "79 3-D Glasses" to be used in conjunction with a live concert on Fox. Pretty cool and unusual Stones item; was tempted to keep it but decided to put it on the list instead. Condition basically NM-; minor tape removal residue but basically very clean and a nice item for a Stones collector, $30.

Now here's one you don't see everyday: John Cipollina, 9/8/1971, SIGNED BANK CHECK drawn on his Mill Valley bank account, made out for $35 to a local veterinary clinic maybe a dog care bill? Personally filled in and signed by John. Written during the period right at the end of his involvement with Quicksilver and before Copperhead, if I've got my chronology right here. No idea what something like this goes for, but it is a cool item for some Quicksilver, so will list it at $125 which seems about right, and see where it goes from there.

Hitchhiker's Thumb sign poster, KMPX Radio, circa 1967-1968. This is a two-sided 14 x 17" "poster" sign; one side had a map or San Francisco (for image, click here), and the other had a drawing of a hand with the thumb extended (for image front, click here). Apparently the theory was that you could hitch-hike by holding out the side with the thumb on it, whilst the other side had a map to guide you to where you were going in the event you were unfamiliar with the Bay Area's road system! KMPX was the first quasi-underground radio station in San Francsico and a very historic contributor to San Francisco's culture in the 1960s. I got 2 of these, keeping one and have one extra; the first ones I have seen; NM-/VG+ $65

Psychedelic Theater Program, "The Time of Your Life," by William Saroyan, presented at The Theatre, on College Avenue, Berkeley; opening 5/16/1969. Here's another oddball item; 6" x 8.5" folds over to 16 pp, plus bright orange psychedelic cover with the usual info inside on the actors and the production, plus some local ads. Click here and here and here for illustrations. "The Theatre" was founded in 1968 and evolved into the critically acclaimed Berkeley Repertory Theatre. I don't usually sell theatrical programs but the date and cover graphics on this one made it irresistable. Very nice NM- condition, asking $28.

Bill Graham Presents, 1979, approx. 8" x 11" spiral bound calendar for that year, B & W illustrations with dates noting important events in the BGP history; opening of the venues, important shows, etc. Nice copy with one small brown mark at the top cover, two inked-in events on one of the monthly pages, otherwise very clean better than this description sounds. Cool BGP related item, $15.00,

Bill Graham Presents, 25th Anniversary Calendar, 1966-1991, large oversize calendar, approx. 13" x 19", spiral bound, commemorating the anniversary of Bill Graham Presents, with each month annotated with important events in the history of BGP, all the way from Bill Graham's birthday, through the Fillmore years and up to events in the 1980s such as the fire and so on. Profusely illustrated with vintage photos, lots of other interesting information. Good condition; a crease on the back cover and small hints of wear here and there, but overall nice shape. Asking $25, neat item with all the events and dates. (Can probably be sent rolled in a large diameter tube.)

"Zam" (Zap Comix Jam), 1st ed Print Mint 1974, this is a miniature version of Zap Comix (5" x 7" size) 30 pp + color cover with panels by Rick Griffin, Victor Moscoso, typically disgusting stories by S. Clay Wilson, R. Crumb Gilbert Shelton, Spain Rodriguez, etc. I am not a comic book collector and do not intend to start listing them here but this has a very nice color artwork and I got sucked in by the Griffin and Moscoso stuff. I do not know anything about the ridiculous grading system that has taken root in the comic book hobby, but this is in excellent condition, basically unused, asking $22 for it.

Pink Pussycat, Hollywood, CA, circa 1966, advertising flyer for merchandise from this legendary LA strip club, 3.5" x 6"; foldover that opens up to 6" x 7" black on pale pink stock, advertises "love-in shirt," "strippers kit," and diploma for an honorary professorship in the "Pink Pussycat College of Strip Tease." Seriously. Don't believe me? Click here and here for illustrations. I have 2 of these little gems available, condition NM-, $25 each (*)

Pink Pussycat, Hollywood, CA, circa 1962-66, flyer and application form for the "Pink Pussycat College of Strip Tease," from this legendary LA strip club; 3.5" x 6" foldover that opens up to 6" x 7" nice hipster graphics of cat and fishnet stocking on front; reverse contains an application form; inside is a description of the course ($100 fee, which was a lot of $ back then) and description of the topics covered including such gems as "elementary bumps and grinds," "fundamentals of taking it off," etc....you get the idea. Click here and here for illustrations. 2 of them available, asking $35 each. (*)

Johnny & the Hurricanes, "Rockin' Goose", promotional card hyping this 45 RPM record from Furniss Promotions in San Francisco. Size approx 7.5" x 8.75"; machine folded in half like a greeting card. The front shows cartoon drawings of two geese looking at each other with question marks over their heads and the words Rocking Goose at the bottom. When the card is opened there is a nursery rhyme on the inside that says "there was a young gosling from sproose/Who rocked till his feathers came loose/and sang, listen men, it'll make the top ten/on big top it's called rocking goose" (the last being the title of the 45 record being hyped here). Below that it says Johnny & the Hurricanes Big top it's a smash. Signed by Cathy Furniss of Furniss Promotions in SF. Apparently Cathy Furniss was an early SF trend-maker who hyped promising records she thought would make that. Unusual item in good shape. $12.

Manticore Records, Premiata Forneria Marconi (P.F.M.); Italian progressive rock band of the early-mid 1970s, press kit in Manticore jacket consisting of a band bio and an 8 x 10 glossy photo of the band; presumably a fairly rare item for a now-obscure prog rock band, nice VGF+ condition, $18.

The other side of the folder contains several sheets of info on the revival project, description of the characters for those who might not have been familiar with them (!?!), and best of all, a letter from the public relations liaison for the project to one Barry Hansen describing the project and offering the use of the song on the recipient's radio program. Hansen is best known by his radio name, DOCTOR DEMENTO, and this letter and press kit came out of his archives. Super-cool and unique, condition VG+ - NM, $40.

"Five Summer Stories Plus Four" (surfing movie, late 1970s); great 5" x 8" handbill (blank, no show info) with fabulous color airbrush art by the great RICK GRIFFIN; shows the original art with a surfer holding a piece of glowing purple surf was in the middle of a psychedelic "5"; with a larger image of a "4" with a center image of a psychedelic nude woman surfing down a waive. Beautiful NM item, $27.50.

Grateful Dead, "Blues for Allah" clear decal sheets, circa 1976(?); clear decal on white backing sheet; has the Phillip Garris image but the details are covered by the white backing sheet; you have to remove the sheet to affix it to a car window or other glass.
