The work of Fillmore poster artist David Singer is a sub-genre of poster art in itself. Singer’s output was the largest of any single Fillmore poster artist. Initially Singer's photo collage style often gets overlooked as it's not as obvious as some of his predecessor’s illustrations. However with a second look collectors discover the great depth beauty and symbolism in his body of work.

This Grateful Dead poster was made for a historic run of shows by the band. These four nights at the Fillmore were the very first after the release of “Workingman’s Dead” and featured a rare acoustic set each night. The New Riders of the Purple Sage opened for the Dead at these shows.
