THE ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO BRINGS BACK THE SIXTIES WHEN ROCK WAS YOUNG

As one of several new exhibits, the AGO is showing a room full of posters from the Donald Muller/Ross Scott Collection. Above – Joan Baez and Bob Dylan – East Coast Tour, March-April/1965′ – is one of the earliest in the collection. It’s by Eric Von Schmidt (1931-2007), a musician, father of folk revival, and credited with discovering Bob Dylan and fostering the career of Joan Baez.

Above – ‘The Doors, August 8, Electric Circus, NYC, 1969′ – was made for a concert that never happened. At a 1969 concert in MIAMI, Jim Morrison was charged with indecent exposure and accused of trying to start a riot. He was arrested and fined $500.  <PHOTOS – Ross Winter>
