In Concert: Comerford Theatre, Tuesday February - Captain Beefheart and the Magi - 1971. 
Magnus Productions, New York - Original promotional poster for a performance by Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band and Ry Cooder at the Comerford Theatre in Wilkes-Barre, PA, Tuesday, February 2, 1971.At first blush, a double bill that doesn't quite seem congruous. But on consideration, Captain Beefheart and Ry Cooder had a great deal in common. Beefheart was a experimental blues deconstructionist, and Cooder was a blues historian with deep roots in American folk music. Neither musician performed with any great frequency, and both stopped performing in general (with a few exceptions) in the late 1980s, each more interested in recording and exploring outside the world of touring and promotion. Beefheart gave up music for art, and Cooder gave up making his own records in favor of assisting the work of obscure and undiscovered folk artists the world over.Beefheart was at this moment in time in between "Lick My Decals Off, Baby" (1970) and "Clear Spot" (1972). Cooder was in between "Into the Purple Valley" (1971) and "Boomer's Story" (1972). Looking at this poster, we are between the devil and the deep blue sea. One wonders if the two men met, and how they got along. A serious rarity, and a moment in time that no vinyl record store clerk, even with the worst hangover of his life, could ever discredit. 12 x 22 inches, rolled. Near Fine.
