Yeah, I know it will be a dufficult task getting all the copyright's and such straightened out, especially considering that all the artists involved are from different record companies and have different publishing companies, but it's really cool to hear some of that stuff that you don't hear on the radio anymore. There's a radio show that comes on WOFX in Dayton, Ohio every Sunday from 6-9 called "The Jelly Pudding Show" that plays stuff like that, but nowhere else around here can you hear REAL classic rock. I have read about Great Society,and knew who they were, but I had never HEARD them.
So you're already ahead of the game Toni, I thought I was finding something new . I was checking their site out and had NO IDEA how much some of those posters and stuff were worth. Just amazing.
Hey, you DID find something new. I only know about it because it was my business for many years, and I still am a collector. Actually, my non-compete clause runs out in 11 months and I may go back into the business (ssshhh, that's a secret)
The bottom line on Fillmore stuff, by the way, is that most of it isn't rare at all & in many cases, the prices have been intentionally inflated. Bill Graham printed thousands more of everything than he actually needed. Tickets are the perfect example - there are over 2 million uncirculated tickets to old Fillmore shows still available - for some shows, there are over 5000 tickets in the "vaults" (considering the Fillmore only held about 1200 people, that's a lot of tickets).
To date, the most expensive San Francisco rock poster sold is probably the Acid Test - one showed up a couple of years ago with an unusal venue marker and it went for over $26,000.00. Time to check in the attic people - I still buy these crazy old things.

Which is why I could (and probaby should) shoot the Wicked Witch of Rosemont, who claims that boxes of my hippie stuff and record collection "just disappeared - I don' know where that stuff is" when I decided to move out. Actually, most of my clothes and other stuff "disappeared", too.
She had no idea what it was worth, so I doubt she still has the stuff. I take some small consolation in that she probably either sold it at a flea market or garage sale for beer money or used it as fuel for a backyard bonfire while casting some sort of voodoo/vengeance spell my way. Either way, at least she didn't profit much from it.
I least I managed to get my guitars, basses and other musical equipment out before she could torch them as she threatened.
