San Francisco: A. S. A. P. Press, 1967. Vintage three-color poster for two 1967 Butterfield Blues Band and Charles Lloyd Quartet concerts, to be held at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco on January 27th and 28th.
Promoted by Bill Graham for his legendary San Franciscan venue, and thusly illustrated in typical countercultural high-psychedelic style, this attractive poster is bold in red and yellow with an image of jazz saxophonist Charles Lloyd. Lloyd left his place in Cannonball Adderley's sextet to create his own quartet, as seen performing here. Not only was this quartet the first jazz group to ever play the Fillmore, but they there recorded their well-regarded live album, "Love-In," during the February January 27th performance as well. The Butterfield Blues Band, founded by blues harmonica player Paul Butterfield, at this point in its history consisted of seven musicians whose work was largely horn-driven and rhythm and blues-influenced.
14 x 23 inches, three-color offset lithograph. Very Good condition, with a handful of closed tears that have been backed with cello tape on the verso, and with areas of bruising to the verso as well.
