Chuck Berry and Chicago Transit Authority provided the decidedly un-peaceful music on this split-billing poster.

Print Variations

The handbill was printed once before the concert. It has a calendar of upcoming Bill Graham events on the reverse, and it measures 4 1/4" x 6 11/16".

There were also some pre-concert postcard mailers printed that were conjoined with the BG188 image (see BG187/188). 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.
