After Bill Graham closed the Fillmore West in San Francisco, posters were replaced by paper handbills handed out at shows. Printed cheaply on thin paper but beautifully lettered by Randy Tuten, these handbills were produced from 1971 to 1973, as far as I know. This one has some great shows on it, beginning with The Band ("Cahoots" had just been released a few months before), Hot Tuna (that show's second-bill act, Joy of Cooking, were great, as were Tower of Power), and the Dead and Riders on New Year's Eve, which I saw with some friends from high school. I'm pretty sure I was 15...
