Sixties Posters has assembled the largest collection of Boston Tea Party posters I've seen anywhere and the best part is that you can bid on them. You'll need deep pockets though.
The Boston Tea Party was a concert venue located on 53 Berkeley Street in Boston, Massachusetts.
Originally the site of a synagogue, and then a street mission, the location was later converted into a venue that showed underground films, before being bought by Ray Riepen and David Hahn and converted again into a concert venue. It opened as a rock music hall on January 20, 1967.
The venue became associated with the psychedelic movement, being similar in this way to other contemporary rock halls such as New York's Fillmore East and Electric Circus, San Francisco's Fillmore West, and Philadelphia's Electric Factory.
The early history of this venue is documented in the book Mansion on the Hill by Fred Goodman.
Highly sought after and extremely scarce third book in Araki's Sentimental Journey Series is being auctioned at Christies is expected to fetch $6180! A few years back I spent a week in LA with Keith from the criminally overlooked band Soviet. He was working with a producer on some new songs for a Hip Hop artist in Silver Lake. Coincidentally, that producer was also producing some tracks for the Jesus & Mary Chain. One of the Reid brothers, not sure which one, had left a handful of Araki books at the studio and looking back, I believe this was one of them. There was alot of very potent Czech beer involved that night, so I could be mistaken but had it been this book and had I known how valuable this book was, I would scanned the whole thing. Woulda, coulda, shoulda.
