Society w/Grace Slick, the Grass Roots, Big Brother and the Holding Company and Quicksilver Messenger Service at the Fillmore Auditorium on Saturday, February 26, 1966.

    Known as FD-2 in the Family Dog numbered series, this poster comes from the personal archives of Bob Cohen, the man who co-owned the Family Dog and ran it with Chet Helms from early 1966 until the firm's demise in late 1968.

    For a full description of this poster, its background and its importance, please refer to our listing of the first printing of this poster in this very auction.

    Measures 14 ¼" x 20" and grades to Near Mint condition, with the only flaw being the slightest corner bump in the lower left corner. Very tiny crease and tiniest bit of white-tip. COAs from Bob Cohen and from Heritage Auctions.

    Literature: See Grushkin, Paul, The Art of Rock: Posters from Presley to Punk, Abbeville Press, New York, 1987, p.95 (illustrated).
