1964 Globe Poster Little Bobby Booker and His Rocking Rockets Letter Press Poster R&B Odenton MD

A Globe Poster Letter Press Poster for Little Bobby Booker and his Rocking Rockets. Very close in date and of course name, the picture of the musician is obviously different. This concert is a few day prior to the other listing. 

The date is June 19-20 and 21st, not stated but is 1964.

As stated in the previous post, the artist is not know but could be the artist on Hit Records. "here is a Little Bobby Brooks, from the same time and with a handful of singles on the Hit Records Label. Hit Records was located here on the east coast. The label specialized in covers of the day and they sold the records cheap. Most likely the same Little Bobby Brooks. The Rockin' Rockets was likely a local pick up band, a large big band R&B band." 
The back up band is billed as Rocking Rockets not Rockin' Rockets.

Size: 14 x 24 inches
Condition: only a small tear from nail hole at the bottom margin of the poster and a small hole at the center. A small water stain on the top left side of the poster. Light edge bumps and light soiling marks. The poster is still in amazing condition, these poster are cardboard and hung in the outside on a pole. Pleases see the images for more details. 

Globe Poster was known for doing named and no named bands from the 1920's to the 1990's. They for all intensive purpose documented the African American music scene from the time they moved to Baltimore in 1920s on up. Every generation of musicians went to Globe Poster. The posters grabbed your attention with the bold black lettering and simple, in this case one color design. Globe could use more color but why, the simple light blue diagonal block adds the attention your eye sees.
This one color was cheap and easy for the company and of course cheaper for the band.
