Description

David Ruffin

Original neon orange and yellow 22 x 33 1969 David Ruffin and others concert poster. The Norfolk Arena was the setting for a soul extravaganza starring The Temptations' former lead singer, David Ruffin, in November '69. His first and only major hit as a solo artist, 'My Whole World Ended (The Moment You Left Me),' was, in fact, intended as a Temptations single earlier in the year. Though they enjoyed moderate success on the rhythm & blues charts, Kool & The Gang were still nearly four years away from mainstream success on the pop charts. It was Mel & Tim's 'Backfield in Motion,' however, that was most familiar to those in the Norfolk audience, as it was #3 on the R&B singles chart and would hit the top ten in the pop charts the folllowing month, becoming a standard staple of oldies radio for decades after. A fabulous boxing style poster from Globe Posters of Baltimore. In fine condition, with scattered light toning and soiling.
