Jethro Tull Handbill
  • Jethro Tull Handbill
Revelation was the over-arching theme of Singer's melodramatic poster. The composition played off the names of British rockers, Clouds, and folk group, Georgia Sea Island Singers, and was a good example of the depth of his work. Headliner Jethro Tull, led by guitarist/vocalist/flautist Ian Anderson, was a very popular live attraction throughout the 1970's.
Print Variations
The handbill was only printed once before the concert and displays a calendar of upcoming Bill Graham events on the reverse. It measures 4 1/2" x 7 1/8".
There were also some pre-concert postcard mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG225 image (see BG225/226). They measure 7 1/8" x 9".
About David Singer
During his Fillmore era, from 1969-1971, Singer created more posters for Graham than any other artist. Singer's posters are notable for his use of collage, incorporating thousands of images clipped from magazines spanning several decades. He developed a format that included a stunning variety of lettering styles, applying them in close relation to the theme or subject of a poster.
