Closing of Winterland - 1978
    #4163238 - 05/11/05 08:37 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

My dad just passed on to me this awesome poster. It's the final show at Winterland in San Francisco, CA.



The Grateful Dead and The Blues Brothers (Dan Akroyd and John Belushi) played there. My dad was working for Bill Graham at the time. He got to squeeze orange juice in the morning with him! While really coked out, so I understand...

I've been searching the net far and wide for a price, but can't seem to find anything solid. Some guy on eBay is selling an artist proof for $2000, and I found a site that's selling framed replicas of it for $600. This isn't an artist proof, its just a print, but it is from the actual concert in 1978. So I'm thinking, even in its weathered state, its worth a good grand or so. The price isn't important though, the poster is awesome! Just thought I would share :grin:

Yeah I wouldn't ever sell it, I was just curious if it was worth anything. I don't have the DVD, actually I just found out there was one today while researching the poster. I'll probably end up buying it soon.

it's awesome, it's a 2 disc set, and they show parts of it on pbs all the time (they should be slowing down though, now that it's not exactly fresh out)... i had to buy it, and it's just got really good stuff. The bonus disc is way awesome.

it's the kind of thing you put on and just hang out to while your on the computer, or doing something around the house...
