The quality of this postcard is not the best, but the artwork by Wes Wilson and lineup by Bill Graham is kinda killer. BG-55. Dates were March 17-19, 1967 at Winterland (the Friday and Saturday shows) and the Fillmore Auditorium (Sunday). Chuck Berry was the headliner, of course, with support by the Grateful Dead and Johnny Talbot and De Thangs, both of whom had been the warm-up acts for Otis Redding the previous December at the Fillmore.

In fact, the Dead did a lot of Chuck Berry covers over the years, including Around and Around, Promised Land (my fave), Johnny B. Goode, and Run Rudolph Run, which Pigpen sang during a run at the Felt Forum in New York at a couple of other venues in December of 1971. They did not play it when I saw them on New Year's Eve 1971/1972 at Winterland, probably because by then Christmas was behind us...
