Using a characteristic picture-frame presentation, Singer's safe house appeared more menacing than the outdoors in this B.B. King-Santana split billing.

Print Variations

The handbill was only printed once before the concert. It presents a calendar of upcoming Bill Graham events on the reverse and measures 4 5/8" x 7 5/16".

There were also some pre-concert double-sized postcard mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG180 image (see BG180/181). They measure 7 1/4" x 9 1/4".

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.
