#35 is scarce — Warm Weather Series (otherwise all of above numbers is available in 40 sets of 58 or so?? I am researching making this available as sets only to collectors and collections, up to 40 sets — the remaining overruns were destroyed by MBW in 2016. There are 59 lots of 40, destined to be 40 sets of 59.

There are bands and artists that appear on this list but did not appear at the concert; there are bands that appeared at these concerts that are not listed above. (There are also concerts that had no poster)

Should I reformat this list by date? by size? Alphabetical by first headliner? 

There are also ticket designs and some scarce handbills (Femi Kuti – Steve Lacy)

Private collection of signed posters (signed by the performers)

Collection of correspondence, contracts, publicity still provided by record labels, et cetera— nine boxes ie. 30 yards or so. There’s about 40 hours of audio tapes, of varying production value, mostly on analog tape not digital. 

Michele Nelson (sic) also known as Michele Turner??
