The concert was held at the Fillmore in San Francisco on August 12, 1966. A Bill Graham Production, BG-023.The poster is 14 3/16" by 20" in size. The poster was designed by Wes Wilson. This is the FIRST PRINTING of the poster, before the concert.
The first printing can be distinguished by the. Porous white stock, the rich purple background color, the inclusion of "Wes Wilson 66" credit in the. Dark purple just below the Sat.13 date and the reverse side traces of ink on back from. This poster is in excellent condition, with small pin holes on the corners and a light crease to the top left corner. Overall, the poster is bright and clean. A very attractive vintage rock poster. The poster is better than what my photos can show.
The poster has been rolled up for many years. In order to take photographs I needed to lay a clear piece of acetate over the poster. This poster comes from the estate of a Santa Cruz musician. He loved and collected vintage rock.
Posters from the San Francisco Bay area for many years. Be sure to check out the other rock posters. That I will be putting up from his estate in the coming weeks.
