"August, 1970 was busy for Bill Graham, and mid-month concerts ranging from blues to acid rock and including big-names and no-names had to be scheduled and promoted. Singer found the large triptych to be a useful vehicle, and arranged the performers around another classical-style collage. On this poster, the performance dates were to be read clock-wise, beginning at 11:00. Three of the four concerts were held at the Fillmore West. Scheduling and anticipated audience size caused Van Morrison's show to be held at the Berkeley Community Center and Led Zeppelin's to be held at the Oakland Coliseum."
