1st printing A measures 14 3/16" x 19 15/16" on vellum. "Family Dog © 1966 Mouse! Studios" appears medium blue/purple. This version was printed before the concert.
The 1st printing B shows "Family Dog (c) 1966 Mouse! Studios" in a dark, almost black color. It also measures 14 3/16" x 19 15/16" and was printed before the concert.
The post-concert 3rd printing is 14 1/4" x 19 15/16" and presents "30-3" in the lower left corner. "1967 (c) Family Dog Productions 639 Gough St., San Francisco, Calif. 94102" appears in the lower right hand corner.
No poster with the "30-2" designation has been found, leading to the assumption that there was no official second printing.
As a founding member of the Family Dog, Kelley handled promotions for the events at the Avalon Ballroom, drawing posters and handbills. He soon met up with Stanley Mouse, and their association nurtured Kelley's success as an artist. Kelley had a natural talent for collage and a keen eye for culling and combining imagery and styles from diverse sources. Teamed with Mouse's drafting skill, collaborations became increasingly sophisticated, yet irreverent. Kelley always worked by hand, producing posters and other print graphics for a wide array of entertainment-oriented clients.
