Description

David Singer was a collage artist, but BG279 and BG280 represented his experimentation with freehand drawing. The experiment was clearly a success, and this swooping, linear sketch, Oriental in flavor, was striking. In this poster, a male, moon-reference figure topped a Samuri-style figure. Closer examination revealed an eagle, and the Samuri became the man's cloak. The lettering recalled the birds of BG250. BG279 and BG280 should be viewed as complementary works of art, and both have become extremely valuable examples of the artist's product. BG279 is also notable because Miles Davis, in his third appearance at Fillmore West, achieved top billing.

The poster was only printed once before the concert. It measures 14" x 20 15/16".
