Blues music heavyweights "Howling Wolf" and "Muddy Waters" faced off in a musical showdown at Club Paradise in Memphis on 10/24/70. Offered is a 17 x 27-1/4" broadside from this classic event, which was titled "Battle of the Blues" as printed on an orange ribbon below the date section. This colorful poster is printed on light cardboard stock and features sharply focused photos of the legendary bluesmen Wolf and Waters. Moderate overall wear is noted, including pinholes at the corners, surface chipping on the periphery and scattered light creasing. Despite these conditions, this relic of a long ago era remains very appealing with nice gloss and bold graphics against day-glo orange highlights. No word on who came out on top, but surely all in attendance were winners in getting a chance to see these giants of American music flash their rousing riffs.
