Background Singer, who went on to work for the Rolling Stones, Santana and many others, made his name creating posters for Bill Graham (1931-1991), a leading music promoter whose chief venue at this time was the Fillmore West. This characteristically elegant example of singer's work presents the head of Michelangelo’s David mirrored in the style of a playing card. At the time of these concerts The Kinks were at their most popular, touring with hits including Lola and Waterloo Sunset. Elton John was then a newer talent, having had his first US hit that year with Your Song. Recordings of both exist, from these sessions. Ballin’ Jack, a Seattle band, had their only hit that year, Super Highway, while Juicy Lucy were British and known then for their version of Who Do You Love?
