Hound Dog Taylor, Original Alligator Record Promotional Poster, issued for his album "Hound Dog Taylor & The House Rockers" in 1971, the record which launched the iconic blues record label. Sadly, Hound Dog's tenure at Alligator was all too brief; his acclaimed album "Natural Boogie" followed in 1973 and led to increased success, but further Alligator releases were to be posthumous, as Taylor died in 1975 of lung cancer. The poster is about very good, printed to matte thin paper stock, 12 " by 17 ", horizontal machine fold to center, tiny closed tears to bottom right and top left margins, spot of tape residue to bottom left edge, pin holes to corners and right margin. The poster has been stored flat for many years in an archival folder. Scarce and of historical interest. J2260
