A month after their scheduled appearance in San Francisco, superstar band Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young returned to the city to play four sold-out dates at the Fillmore West.
Our vintage concert handbills feature performances from the Fillmore, Fillmore East, Winterland, the Avalon Ballroom and more.
The handbill was printed before the concert and presents a calendar of upcoming Bill Graham events on the reverse. It measures 4 9/16" x 7 1/8".
There were also some pre-concert postcard mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG199 image (see BG199/200). They measure 7 1/8" x 9 1/4".
Randy Tuten is the only poster artist whose work spans five decades of design for The Fillmore. The 23 year-old San Francisco native was hired by Bill Graham in January, 1969, and their mutual taste for traditional, readable design style led to a long-lasting work relationship. Although influenced by the compositions of "Fillmore Five" artists Mouse, Kelley and Griffin, Tuten avoided "... Heavy meaning in my posters." Tuten's style reflected his skill as a draftsman, and his designs evolved into an eclectic mix of graphic imagery, lettering and photographs.
