Would love to get some more info on this poster. It was given out in 1977 to attendees of an American Marketing Association event in San Diego and the art is by R. Watts. I’ve also seen it attributed to Bob Watts.

Google searches bring up Robert/Bob Watts who was a Star Wars producer but no art career is mentioned. I’d love to get my hands on even a reprint of this poster.

I think I may have a vinyl LP featuring that stunning artwork. I'm at work now and will have to check my archives tonight.

Just when I thought I've seen it all!

Pretty sure the mini poster that came with the soundtrack is not what is pictured above.

Scott_D is correct, this is not the same art from the LP.

In regards to the poster-
Unfortunately, there's not much more to say about this poster then what you already know-

The convention was September 22, 1977 in San Diego. And yes, this poster was given to those who desired one in attendance. Bob Watt was the illustrator of the poster and is credited as such, (I never heard "R. Watt" before). I am also unaware of any bootlegs or prints floating around. The original is 18" x 23".


Hope this helps,
Cheers!
