The Yardbirds live in Ontario
Very rare poster for The Yardbirds and The Staccatos at Hideen Valley Ski Resort, Huntsville, Ontario on Saturday evening August 26th., 1967 at 9 PM.
The Yardbirds live in Ontario
Well, file this under great Canadian Rock And Roll posters from the 1960s !
The concert poster seen above left was recently brought to our attention by Yardbirds fan David of Owen Sound, Ontario. The poster was created in August 1967 to promote and advertise The Yardbirds' one-night only concert appearance at the Hidden Valley resort near Huntsville, Ontario. The group travelled from New York City by bus to play the evening concert at the skill hill resort. The Staccatos opened the show for them. Both artists were on the Capitol 6000 label in Canada at that time.
In his book titled "Sonic Boom: The Impact Of Led Zeppelin. - Break and Enter", author Frank Reddon interviewed two Canadian Yardbirds fans who attended the show and they both said that The Yardbirds did not get on the stage until well after 11 PM. They claimed that this late start was due to the group being held up en route at the USA / Canada border.
The original poster measures 8.5 inches wide by 9.5 inches high and was printed on thick, glossy paper in black and white. It is probable that the posters were printed by a printing company in Toronto and that they were posted throughout the downtown Toronto area as the show was also advertised in The Toronto Telegram. A limited number of the same posters would also have been posted in the Muskoka Lakes area of Ontario; on bulletin boards at local grocery stores and the like. The picture that was used on the poster was taken a whole year before in 1966 when Jeff Beck was still in the lineup, and you can see from the original picture on the right that Jeff Beck has been "chopped".
An original copy of the poster sold recently for over $500 and this poster with the cello tape marks is the only one we have ever seen. Thanks David !
