Our vintage concert postcards commemorate shows from Fillmore East, Fillmore West, Winterland and Avalon Ballroom.
Tuten brought the Bill Graham poster series back to earth in this black and white, California vegetable crate sticker advertisement for The Rascals. The light show was run by the Garden of Delights.
The only postcards known to exist measure 4 5/8" x 7" and were cut from the BG281/282 pre-concert double-sized mailer.
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.
