Art by (and SIGNED in black sharpie by), Randy Tuten, medium glossy-coated index stock poster is in mint/near mint to near mint (A/A- to A-) condition; a SUPERB-looking example of this late-'70's oddball BGP poster featuring a pretty wide variety of performers.
According to an attendee of the 12/31 Dead show, small handbills were passed out that said, "Good things come to those who wait. Midnight will happen tonight at 12:30. Be prepared!"; apparently Bill had to be at the Cow Palace to ring in the New Year at the Santana show before heading over to Winterland. (*Thanks Doug!)
