Promotional flyer, most likely designed to be folded into thirds as a brochure, advertising the vocal group Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans, listing their recent tour stops, radio plays, and television appearances. Bob B. Soxx played shows with James Brown, Jackie Wilson, and many others. Put together by the frontman, Bobby Sheen, aka Bob B. Soxx, this flyer urges bookers and promoters to get in contact with Sheen to promote Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans. The recto of the flyer displays a photo of the group with crudely drawn compass map listing various tour stops, with detailed information on the verso. The group was produced by Phil Spector and consisted of Sheen, Darlene Love, and Fanita James. With only one hit, "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah," the group was short-lived, though members went on to perform in The Crystals, the Blossoms, and several other projects.
