Thinkin’ ‘Bout An Old Cowhand

On February 8, 2016, in News, by Ben Marks


It’s been a tough couple of weeks if you follow the obituaries, so apologies for the delay in giving Dan Hicks (the guy on the right in the far-left image) his due. This is a triptych advertising a series of shows at the Avalon featuring the Charlatans, for their performances between between May and July of 1967. These are all scans of postcards rather than posters. All are anchored by photos by Herbie Greene. Rick Griffin designed the first two, Robert Fried executed the last one—in the manner of Griffin, you might say. Anyhow, here’s to the Charlatans, and that old cowhand.

    I loved this old music, and the man who kept his licks hot through all the years of tears…

    Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks band, free at the beach in San Francisco…

    In Vancouver in the early seventies …

    In Victoria at the old Memorial Arena …

    Now singin’ in the celestial choir of the Lord, with Django…

    Dan Hicks, Paul Kantner, and Signe Anderson, R. I. P.

    Thanks for the reminder on these. I have them and loved Dan Hicks, but completely forgot.
