The top of this poster uses the elements of the album cover art. The text strips have been moved, and the title has been enlarged, tilted to the right rather than the left, and has had most of its color removed, all to take advantage of the larger space and to be more legible from a distance. Pammy and Nicky have also been tilted sightly to the right. Where we expect to see Tim Curry’s face, we have the RSO cow on a yellow blob, itself atop a red circle. The bottom of the poster is the purple pixellated art from the inside of the album gatefold. The text strips listing the bands have been spaced out, and the punctuation at their ends removed.

This poster is promoting “A 2-Record Set.” Almost offhandedly it mentions that Times Square is “Coming to a Theatre Near You Oct. 17th.”

You know, I may have talked one of these off the wall of the upstairs record store at the Quakerbridge Mall, but I can’t remember for sure anymore.

    Yeah, it’s old news, there’s a link near the bottom of the right column, but I’m not going to delete your message, because the more links the better. Anybody checking it out, be warned that she generally only interacts online for a day or two every several months.
