Singer's Southwest was both pure and cruelly barren in BG182, a sharp contrast to the rocking music of split-billing B.B. King and Country Joe & the Fish at the Fillmore West.

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 9/16" x 7 1/8".

There were also some pre-concert double-sized mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG183 image (see BG182/183). They measure 7" x 9 1/8".

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.
