This is an original promotional poster from 1971 for the very first album released by Alligator Records. Accordingly to a very knowledgable source at Alligator, there were only 1,000 (or less) of these posters printed, and they were sent to DJs and PR people in promotion of the initial Hound Dog Taylor release. The poster is signed in the lower left corner by Bruce Iglauer, founder and president of Alligator Record. The hand drawn alligator beneath his signature is a moniker sometimes found with his signature. I received this today via the mail directly from Mr. Iglauer.
And you can see Hound Dog's 6 fingers!
Bruce Iglauer has done a lot for the blues by keeping Alligator strong.
Congrats Christopher. Looks good framed.
Real nice Chris,congrats.nicw framejob.
She’s a beaut. Congrats Chris
great piece great sigs, congratulations
But you gave me a panic attack when I quickly read "signed by all" and "holy grail" hahaha
I thought you had Syd signed too lol
Thanks guys. Much appreciated. I was reluctant to accept the frame guy's recommendation for the pink inner matte, but he's been right before and it is Pink Floyd after all. Goodcat53 - sorry for the rather careless language, haha. It's funny how the definition of "holy grail" changes the longer you're in this addictive hobby. With Syd, this would indeed be as good as it gets.
No worries, my blood pressure is back to normal now haha
great choice on the pink border. It goes great with this LP color
the placement of the sigs are awesome... all slanted similarly and pleasing to the eye.
I'm Jealous! Congrats, Looks great!
That's the nicest Pink Floyd signed album and display I've seen in ages!
I'm with Steve, that is simply gorgeous. Framing looks amazing, congrats!
