Description:
N.p.: N.p., 1970. Vintage flyer for a concert held at the James Brown Motor Inn in Baltimore, 1970. Billed as "A World Series Special Show," the concert would have been held on either Saturday, October 10, in conjunction with Game One of the 1970 World Series (which itself took place at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati), or Saturday, October 17, to celebrate the Orioles winning the World Series in Baltimore the preceding Thursday. It's unclear when Brown, whose second wife was from Baltimore, purchased the motor inn, located at the intersection of Franklin and Paca Streets, but a 2006 "Baltimore Sun" article notes that it was closed in 1971 after "developing a reputation for rowdiness." Brown himself is not billed on flyer, which notes performances by the Johnny "Hammond" Smith Trio, comedian Clay Tyson, and appearances by "TV Star" John T. McPhee and "Tap Dancing Wizard" Vertis Johnson. 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Lightly soiled, with a small chip to the upper left corner, Very Good Plus.
