A neatly constrained design reminiscent of BG030 characterizes this poster headlining The Grateful Dead, who were still largely a local group. Offering mixed fare, big-draw Lightnin' Hopkins brought blues to the table.
The 1st printing postcard is on coarse 8.5 to 9 point stock. It measures 5 1/8" x 8" and was printed with the original poster prior to the show.
The 2nd printing postcard is on smooth 8 point stock and measures 4 15/16" x 8". Some of the post-concert 2nd printing postcards have blank backs.
In 1986, Wes Wilson commissioned thousands of red, blue and orange 3rd printing postcards. This reprint measures 4" x 6".
Herb Greene's work chronicles the heyday of Haight-Ashbury. Living in the neighborhood, Greene worked by day as staff photographer for a San Francisco department store and photographed the early rock scene on his own time. Greene's artistic reputation grew with the musical milieu; he shot the cover of Jefferson Airplane's first album and is considered by many to be the 'official' photographer of The Grateful Dead. After a 15 year respite, Greene re-involved himself in rock photography. He's published two books, exciting pictorial histories of The Dead and has had several successful exhibits and tours of his work.
