Series II: Jagmo Posters contains concert and event posters designed by Nels Jacobson at Jagmo Studios. Most of the posters in this series were printed by Terry "Speleo" Raines with an off-set printing process and print runs of fewer than 300 posters. The posters were designed especially for advertising purposes. The collection provides a sampling of Nels "Jagmo" Jacobson's artistic work across musical genres. Seen in a broader context, the collection provides insight to how regional and mainstream performers and venues promoted their shows over three decades and serves as a reference to artists that were actively performing in that era.
The artist files mainly consist of press clippings but also include biographical, tour, and album release information. The Michael Ochs Collection spans the years 1948 to 1994, with the bulk of the material dating between 1975 and 1985. The documents pertain to Ochs’ career as a rock and roll photographer, his career as a publicist for Columbia Records, the courses he taught at UCLA, and his radio programs. The collection provides rich documentation of both Ochs’ role in the rock and roll music industry and a history of the rock and roll genre itself. Ochs' research and interviews provide intricate details for those interested in the history of rock and roll music.
