Design by Jerry Pompili/Wilson-Frissora, image is anun-numbered image in the Bill Graham/Fillmore East series.

Medium flat vellum stock postcard is in decent/used (B/B- to B-) condition; there is a large 2&1/4" crescent-shaped tear in the left margin, along with a small rust stain in the upper left corner, a bit of minor corner-tip/edge creasing, light handling/surface wear, tack holes in the top/bottom center margins, mild paper toning, a torn mailing label and a bit of pen scratch on the reverse... definitely a bit on the used side, but it's all there.

Conditional issues aside, the Allman Brothers shows from this run were recorded and released later in the year as "At Fillmore East", one of the best-selling live albums of all time. Historic ABB!
