Avalon Ballroom 6/17-18/66

Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band at Avalon Ballroom 6/17-18/66 by Stanley Mouse

© Chet Helms DBA Family Dog Productions All Rights Reserved

Catalog No. FD-13

AA very colorful and popular poster that is difficult to find as an original print. This is the first Family Dog poster designed by Stanley Mouse, and it predates the formation of Mouse Studios with Alton Kelley. The central image is of a bull labeled “Choice,” and is one of many examples of attempts by the artist to connect the theme with the name of the band-in this case, Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band.

Many original copies of this poster exist where the red ink is smeared and extends outside the black border, or into the central image. Well-printed copies command a substantial premium and are difficult to find.

The original poster was printed on vellum and measures approximately 14″ x 20″.

The second print poster was printed on uncoated index stock and measures approximately 14″ x 20″. It carries the notation “No. 13-2” in the lower right corner.

The original handbill was printed on very thin paper and measures approximately 5″ x 8″.
