At this point, Bill Graham had
begun experimenting with marquee style concert posters for his
non-Fillmore shows. He used this style frequently for Fillmore East
shows, and apparently liked the effect (either that, or he liked the fact
that he didn't have to pay an artist for the poster design). The
shows promoted on this poster are very historic shows. They are the
last of the Hendrix/Bill Graham shows, having taken place just four months
before his death. They are also widely considered as one of Jimi's
best live performances. A very young James Taylor shares the bill
for these shows at the Berkeley Community Theater.
