BG-1 FD-1 Concert Posters 1966 First in Their Series (Jefferson Airplane)

These are the two posters that launched the Bill Graham Fillmore and Family Dog Avalon series of concert posters that defined an era in late-60s San Francisco. FD-1, the first Family Dog concert poster, features the Jefferson Airplane with Big Brother and the Holding Company (before Janis Joplin joined the group), and is nicknamed “Tribal Stomp.” BG-1, the first poster in Bill Graham’s famed “numbered series” of concert posters, also features the Jefferson Airplane in a much simpler and more straightforward design. Both events took place in February 1966 and the rock-music world would never look back. Enthusiastically discussed by collector Pete Howard of PosterCentral.com (phone 805-540-0020, email pete@postercentral.com).
