The "Biggest Show of Stars for '60" Window Card is a jumbo window card for performances on May 17, 1960 at the Orpheum Theatre in Madison, Wisconsin, by Little Anthony and the Imperials, Lavern Baker, the Coasters, Bo Diddley, Jimmy Jones, Clyde McPhatter, Jimmy Reed, Joe Turner, Sammy Turner, and Lloyd Price and His Biggest Show of Stars Orchestra with Harold Cromer as master of ceremonies.
