Bruford rummages in Yes archive…

Rummaging through his early Yes posters for an upcoming book project, Bill came across this fine example of the sort of intricate poster art that was much used on the European scene in the 60s and 70s. Before local rock radio and TV carried paid announcements for upcoming gigs, most of the local concert promotion was by heavy use of posters, which could be quite elaborate.

Interesting to note the highest ticket price for this 1971 gig of 75p was about $1.15, and the lowest – 40p – about 62 cents! This poster and another from the Bruford archive will be in the ‘Art of British Rock’ by Mike Evans, published later this month by the Elephant Book Company. More details as they become available.
