Singer's collages rarely related to the bands or events they advertised. BG227 was a study of forms: the parallel chambers of the nautilus released, or perhaps contained, the stuff of galaxies, and the brightly-defined triangle represented the spiritual. The pure beauty of the design made BG227 a piece of original art. The concert was another example of Bill Graham serving the fans both what they wanted and what they needed: The Grateful Dead and Miles Davis.
The 2nd printing poster displays a white "W" after the "No. 227" in the bottom left hand margin. It measures 14" x 21", was printed after the concert, and is now available at 50% off as our Deal of the Week.
