This is an original Bill Graham Program advertising a run of shows at the legendary Fillmore East in New York City, featuring Allman Brothers, Johnny Winter, Elvin Bishop Group, and more on 3/11-13/71.

The Allman Brothers March 12th and 13th shows were recorded and released as the famous double album Allman Brothers Band Live at Fillmore East! The March 11th shows were also recorded, but deemed unusable by producer Tom Dowd as the band had, for the occasion, invited a horn section to play with them, but Dowd felt their contribution didn't gel with the group sound. Nevertheless, this run of Fillmore East shows is LEGENDARY!

The Fillmore East was Bill Graham's contribution to the New York City music scene in the late 1960s. The venue operated from March 1968 to June 1971. During that period, the Fillmore East hosted some of the most memorable shows of the era. Unlike the West Coast Fillmore, the East Coast counterpart did not use many posters to promote each show. Instead, the promoter produced these vintage "Playbill" style programs, featuring beautiful artwork, album advertisements, and bios/photos of the band's upcoming shows at the venue.
