Original 1st printing 14 x 22" concert poster for Big Brother & the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin) appearing with Santana and Chicago (Transit Authority) at the Fillmore West in San Francisco, CA from 9/12-14/1968.
Art by Rick Griffin, image ("Heart & Torch") is # 136 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore series.
Medium-thick flat index stock poster is in very good (B/B+) condition; there are tackholes/tape residue marks in all four corners, along with a small stain in the right center margin, a few stray handling dings here and there, a couple of nearly-invisible horizontal roll creases and a lightly-penciled message on the reverse*, otherwise fine.
Conditional issues aside, this example actually presents itself quite nicely. It comes from the archive of noted psychedelic poster historian Walter Medeiros- this was his personal copy (*the message on the reverse says, "this was tacked on my wall for many years").
