Jefferson Airplane – The Jaywalkers – BG-05 First Printing Fillmore Poster
Here's a beautiful original first printing Fillmore Poster, BG-05 OP-1, advertising the Jefferson Airplane and The Jaywalkers in May, 1966. This poster is in superb condition, with 3 very tiny and barely visible pinholes in each corner. The back has a very faint and small moisture stain, barely noticeable and of course invisible on the front. This is super super clean and unfaded; a beautiful example of a very rare and early Fillmore poster. Approx 14" x 20". Art by Wes Wilson, with the first printing 72 Union number. This poster comes the collection of the late Ralph J. Gleason (1917-1975;) one of the most influential jazz and pop music critics of all time. He was a central figure in the San Francisco rock scene, helped organize the Monterey Pop Festival, and co-founded Rolling Stone magazine. Bill Graham himself credited Gleason with suggesting the Fillmore Auditorium to him as a site for concerts, while the Family Dog met with Gleason at his home to discuss their idea to stage dance concerts, prior to their first show at the Longshoreman's Hall. This is a rare opportunity to obtain a poster from the personal collection of one of the key figures of the San Francisco Scene. On request, we will gladly provide a certificate of authenticity stating that this poster came from the Ralph J. Gleason Collection.
