BG205 was considered one of Singer's most outstanding efforts. Humble Pie featured a young Peter Frampton, and the concert was memorable for Graham's production crew because the promoter, abstemious by nature, was dosed by the Dead and ended up playing percussion on stage for three hours.

Print Variations

The 1st printing poster is identified by the presence of a horizontal black line measuring 1/8" in the center of the right hand margin. The poster is slate gray and has faded black lettering. It was printed before the concert and measures 14" x 22".

The 2nd printing is a blue/gray color and displays dark black lettering. It omits the horizontal line found in the right hand margin of the original printing. It measures 14" x 22" and was printed after the concert.

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.
