This event was not held at the Grande Ballroom, but was promoted by Russ Gibb.
This image was designed to promote the First Annual Detroit Rock & Roll Revival, which was held at the Michigan State Fairgrounds. It is a great looking image and is always in demand.
The original poster was printed on white stock and measures approximately 17″ x 22″.
The second print poster was printed in 1992 and measures approximately 17⅝″ x 22″. The notation “© 1969, 1992 GARY GRIMSHAW All Rights Reserved” appears in the lower left margin.
The original postcard was printed on white stock and measures approximately 5⅜″ x 7″. There are several minor variations involving the border. For more information, see Eric King’s book. These cards were printed on a slick stock and, as a result usually have a worn look, even when mint. They are also usually cut slightly crooked - often missing one of the margins.
