This poster is signed by the artist, Wes Wilson!


This was the last poster in Wilson's steady run working for Bill Graham. The story goes, Wilson and Graham were at a disagreement when it came to negotiating pay. Many of these concert poster artists were earning pittances and Wilson became fed up with it. With his wife as his muse (as seen in BG-58 BG-60 and BG-62) Wes Wilson depicted a beautiful nude woman with her hand out begging for scraps almost tauntingly as symbols for how little he was earning for his work from Graham.
