    Big Brother and the Holding Company (featuring Janis Joplin) - Rick Griffin-designed Concert Poster #BG136 (Bill Graham, 1968). Legendary Zap Comix artist Rick Griffin's posters for the Fillmore are among the most sought-after items by collectors today. Here is a wonderful example, for a historic show starring Janis Joplin, at the time still performing with her original back-up band, Big Brother and the Holding Company. Joining Janis and the boys that night was Santana, prior to the release of their debut album on Columbia Records, plus the new horn-powered outfit from the Windy City, Chicago Transit Authority (soon to shorten their name to Chicago). This design is known by fans as "Heart and Torch," and it remains one of Griffin's best. The poster is in incredible Excellent condition, fresh and sharp. A real beauty!
