Poppy’s letterhead featured Glaser’s now famous Poppy poster image on the back.
Informational brochures for Tomato were similarly surreal.
Glaser also designed Eggers’ 1971 wedding invitation, composed of an elegant double-sided geometric design. The wedding reception took place at Eggers’ home in Brooklyn Heights, where Townes Van Zandt composed “If You Needed Me” and “Pancho and Lefty.”
According to this list of his appearances, Van Zandt played the Eggers’ wedding for “more than an hour.” (Eggers produced almost all of Van Zandt’s studio albums and later became embroiled in a legal dispute regarding control of Van Zandt’s musical legacy.)
A promotional piece for Utopia Records, c. 1972, is a dense biographical portrait of all the involved personnel, including Eggers and Glaser.
Eggers had a storied career from beginning to end. An excerpt from his bio on this poster describes how he got his start:
Kevin left the ninth grade and Brooklyn for California. The tender age of fifteen found him lugging golf bags around the Bel-Air Country Club. He got interested in the agency business where he was soon involved booking musical acts into bowling alleys. This experience honed his ears so much that he returned to New York, winding up in the mailroom at the G.A.C. Booking Agency. This led to a position as Sid Bernstein’s assistant and an assignment to call Liverpool to track down a then unknown group called the Beatles… Kevin then became associate producer under Bernstein for the Beatles first New York appearance.This article also appears in PRINT.
