A poster from 'kevin_ayers8' at instargam

Boston Tea Party August 24,25,26. I think it looks genuine, but who knows?

The poster seems not to be on olivier landemaine site, so thought it might be worth posting here. The poster suggests three nights at the Tea Party in August 1967, rather than the one night (24th) listed on olivier's site.

NB There is a '1966 Poor Richard's' poster on 'kevin_ayers8' which looks fake. Like a modern design company (it says 'fly factory') have made an ersatz VU poster. And a second one also looks suspicous as there are no dates on it. I'm not going to post them here.

this poster is in the "Velvet Underground New York Art" book which gives it a measure of credibility. It also says that the "weekend of shows" never took place....

any sounds that we feel would detract from the performance has been left in place

Top left, blue sleeve with central picture: is that the June 1st 1974 live album from Cale, Nico, Eno and Ayers? Interesting.

I'd like to know which albums he really had at the front of his collection, rather than the (probably) carefully orchestrated display we see in the photo.
