Bill Graham was the first “Impresario of Rock.” He began producing rock concerts in December of 1965 in San Francisco and for thirty-five years, was the pre-eminent concert promoter in Northern California and the United States. The man and the company he built staged over 29,000 shows by the year 2000.

In the mid-seventies, Graham began presenting huge stadium concerts (known as Day on the Green shows) – extraordinary lineups with incredible spectacle. He started hiring photographers to document the shows. From then on, Graham hired the best local rock photographers to document what resulted in a photo archive encompassing 100,000 images of musical history and virtually every major artist of the period.

These Chromogenic Prints (C-Prints) are color prints made from high resolution scans of color slides and negatives in which colored dyes are coupled with light-silver compounds and printed on genuine photographic paper (Fuji Crystal Archive Super Type C Paper), which utilizes a traditional chemical process. The result is a truly beautiful photographic print, featuring color that is rich and continuous in tone. The archival stability is rated over 100 years in ideal conditions. This archival rating is based on research provided by the Wilhelm Research Institute.
