Original Poster for 1970 Performances by Laura Nyro and The Band at The Berkeley Community Center

Los Angeles: Bill Graham No. BG-215-OP-1, 1970. First Edition. Vintage single poster for two separate January 1970 concerts by Laura Nyro (January 24th, one performance) and The Band (January 31st, two performances) at one of Bill Graham's "alternate" venues, The Berkeley Community Center in Berkeley, CA. First issue, per the points in Eric King's poster guide.

The time of these performances found both Ms. Nyro and The Band touring at the peak of their creative powers. Laura Nyro had released "New York Tendaberry" in the fall of 1969, a record that took her already-established gift for songwriting into much darker territory. The Band had released its second eponymous record, also in the fall of 1969, which contained songs that are deeply ingrained classics today, including "Up on Cripple Creek" and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."

A poster that was printed only once, and in small numbers due to it being for an alternate venue. As a result, an item that is somewhat scarcer than other Bill Graham posters from the same period at Winterland and Fillmore West. A superb example.

14 x 22 inches. A few tiny tackholes and one very small bruise (artwork not affected) at the extremities, Near Fine condition overall.

King, The Collector's Guide to Psychedelic Rock Concert Posters, BG-215-OP-1. Grushkin, The Art of Rock, BG 215, p. 137.
