Original 1st printing 18 x 24&1/8" concert poster featuring the 5/20-6/27/1971 schedule of shows at Bill Graham's Fillmore East in New York City; shows/performers listed include: Leon Russell with Taj Mahal (5/20-23), Lee Michaels and Fanny with special guests Humble Pie (5/28-29), Laura Nyro (5/30), Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention with Head Over Heels (6/4-5, including an unannounced appearance by John Lennon and Yoko Ono), Bloodrock with Glass Harp and Alice Cooper (6/11-12), B.B. King (6/18-19), Johnny Winter with Edgar Winter's White Trash (6/24) and the Allman Brothers Band with the J. Geils Band (6/25-27).

 Design by David Byrd, image is # 11 (the final poster) in the Bill Graham/Fillmore East series and is featured in the Art of Rock on page 158 (plate 2.93).

 Thin glossy stock poster is in very good (B/B+) condition; there is a thin 4" diagonal bend along the lower right margin, along with a series of tiny white pin-prick surface abrasions/rub marks along the green border on the left side of the image area, a VERY soft 3" diagonal bend along the upper left margin, a bit of minor creasing in the top right corner tip, a touch of moisture rippling to the paper and a couple of hairline stress bends and tiny pinch dings hiding within the image area, otherwise fine.

 The closing night party was one of the most legendary blow-outs in Fillmore history, including special guest appearances (the Beach Boys, Mountain) and an Allman Brothers set that lasted well past sunrise. Check out the original WNEW-FM broadcast HERE:
