Dionne Warwick

A rare and stunning original concert poster by celebrated American graphic designer Milton Glaser for Dionne Warwick's debut performance at the Philharmonic Hall, Lincoln Center, New York, on Sunday 25th September 1966. With backing by a 24-piece orchestra led by composer Burt Bacharach and support from Anthony and The Imperials, Warwick wowed the near-capacity audience with showstoppers Who Can I Turn To, Don't Make Me Over, People and Somewhere.

When it came to emotion-packed, soulful interpretations of ballads, Billboard magazine reported the following week, Miss Warwick was second to none. An example of this poster is held in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC.

Excellent (A-)
Unfolded, backed on linen. The backing has smoothed and diminished minor nicks and creases to corners and edges. A few faints brown spots to the right border. Image and colours excellent
