Phenomenal original 11.5 x 16.25 Polydor Records promotional poster for The Who, showing the four band members staring into the camera against a red background, signed in black ballpoint by Keith Moon, Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, and John Entwistle. The poster is an offset print on thick 300 gr./m² paper by the printing house R. Stöpfgeshoff GmbH & Co. KG of Wuppertal, Germany. In fine condition, with a tiny pin hole to each corner and trivial creasing to lower left. The consignor notes that the autographs were obtained in person by his father at the Circus Krone Building in Munich on April 13, 1967.
After releasing their first two albums—My Generation and A Quick One—through Decca and Brunswick Records, The Who signed with Track Record in 1967, an upstart independent record label founded by their managers Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp. During the label's early days, Track remained very reliant upon distribution support in the United Kingdom from the large Polydor Records label based in Germany. A remarkable and highly appealing early band poster signed by the full Who lineup.
