United Artists Records Promotional Poster for the deluxe album BOB WILLS AND THE TEXAS PLAYBOYS FOR THE LAST TIME (1974). Bob Wills was born on a farm near Kosse, Limestone County, Texas in 1905. He was gifted in music and formed a seminal Texas band, The Light Crust Doughboys. The name came from Light Crust flour, the product that sponsored the band's radio show. Later Wills formed Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, the premier western swing band of the late 1930s and 1940s. The band appeared in several films and at least one short for Warner Brothers. Wills is considered one of the pillars of country music, but the fact is that his music incorporated many elements from jazz and swing. In 1974, United Artists recorded a double LP revisiting much of his music and setting it down with modern recording technology. The result was the album FOR THE LAST TIME. This poster is a promotional poster for the album, intended for display in record stores. As Waylon Jennings recorded, in Texas "Bob Wills is still the King." MovieArt does not sell reproductions. This poster shows some signs of general use and should be regarded in average used condition.
