About Us

Anonymous Artists of America at California Hall 6/16-18/67 by Michael Wood / Pyxis Studios


TThese great works of art were produced for seminal rock ’n’ roll shows that took place mainly in San Francisco, California during the 60s and early 70s. Chet Helms, of Family Dog Productions, and Bill Graham (Wolfgang Grajonca), of Bill Graham Presents, were the primary producers of these shows, but the scope of the posters we sell extends across the country and includes many different producers and venues.

Many early bands, including Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Iron Butterfly, Cream, Big Brother & The Holding Company, Canned Heat, and Country Joe & The Fish frequented these venues. Other stellar performers such as Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy, B.B. King, and Albert Collins played as well.

As you look at these works of art, you can almost smell the patchouli. The 60s were a heady time on the West Coast—LSD was legal, “make love, not war” was the slogan of the times, and rock ’n’ roll with a blues influence was the music of choice.

At Classic Posters, we strive to bring you the best selection available of these beautiful works of art. While we specialize in Bill Graham, Family Dog, Neon Rose, and Art of Rock items, we also offer interesting items from the Grande Ballroom and various Texas venues.

We want our site to provide you with lots of great information, and we hope that you will return again and again to tap into our resources. Our dynamic site is updated daily, so you will always receive up-to-date information about items that are available for sale.

Classic Posters traces its roots to its predecessor, Fillmore Poster—a company founded in 2004. Because the scope of posters that Fillmore Poster was dealing in expanded, a new name that would more accurately reflect that scope was needed. The­ new name, Classic Posters, belonged to Michael Erlewine, who had started a Web site by the same name. Mr. Erlewine shared our vision of becoming not only a place to purchase this art, but also to become the premier reference source for poster collecting. To that end, we struck a deal with him to continue what he had started and to complement and enlarge Fillmore Poster. Without the photographs and database that Mr. Erlewine supplied, this project would have been nearly impossible. In the coming months, we will be adding thousands of poster pictures—along with descriptions—allowing anyone to accurately identify and assess the poster(s) they have.

If you would like to see a particular series or single posters included, or if you have information that you think might be valuable, please let us know.

We hope you enjoy exploring the exciting world of 1960s rock ’n’ roll posters at Classic Posters!
