Concertgebouw, Amsterdam February 1975 concert poster
Original first printing concert poster advertising Chick Corea’s jazz fusion group Return to Forever at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam [Holland] on Monday, 17th February, 1975, in support of the No Mystery album – their fifth studio album, recorded at Record Plant Studios in New York City and produced by Chick Corea and Shelly Yakus. All members of the group contributed compositions to this album. Side A contains heavily funk-influenced material composed by each member of the group, whereas Side B is filled by Chick Corea compositions. Chick Corea won a Grammy for Best Instrumental Jazz Performance in 1975 for this album. “Flight of the Newborn” is Di Meola’s first recorded composition and his solos are an early example of shredding.
The poster measures 82.8 x 115.5 cm (approx. 32.6″ by 45.5″ inches) and is printed on thin, uncoated paper stock. The poster has been folded with some creasing and a touch of light overall surface handling wear. Additional photos available on request.
