The enigmatic Captain Beefheart brought his avant-garde brand of rock music to the Avalon in the Summer of 1966. The advertisement for that event utilizes an illustration from late 19th century German cartoonist Heinrich Kley. Very Early FD handbills like this have been soaring in value in recent months. Here is an opportunity to own an early, high quality specimen at a reasonable bid.
