Chicago's first album, released in March 1969, was a smash hit and put the band [then known as 'Chicago Transit Authority'] on the map. From this auspicious beginning, Chicago went on to even greater fame and became one of the seminal American rock acts. The jewel-tones and simple composition of this Singer poster make it popular among Chicago aficionados and poster collectors.
The poster was only printed once before the concert. It measures 13 7/8" x 21 3/4".
The 2nd printing is on coated stock and has "W 2021" in the lower right hand margin. It was printed in 2021 by Wolfgang's in a 250 copy run. This reprint measures 14" x 22".
During his Fillmore era, from 1969-1971, Singer created more posters for Graham than any other artist. Singer's posters are notable for his use of collage, incorporating thousands of images clipped from magazines spanning several decades. He developed a format that included a stunning variety of lettering styles, applying them in close relation to the theme or subject of a poster.
