MacLean's interest in the human face and its many expressions put this rendition front and center on this Muddy Waters, Buffalo Springfield and Richie Havens offering.
1st printing A was printed before the concert and measures 13 15/16" x 21 7/16". There is no brown border on this version.
The 1st printing B also pre-dates the concert and measures 13 15/16" x 21 7/16", but this variant is identified by a brown border that runs along the top third of the poster.
During the early days of the Fillmore, MacLean was the most "present" member of the staff. She collected tickets, passed out handbills, blew up balloons and counted money for Fillmore productions. Impressed with her lettering skill on the upcoming attractions chalkboards, Bill Graham surprised her with an easel and art supplies for Christmas, 1967, and MacLean's poster artist career was launched. Untrained in graphic arts, MacLean's early style evolved into ornate, Medieval-Gothic designs. Faces in her posters wore trance-like stares, steady and serene, and evoke the detached spirituality of the sixties.
