This is a gorgeous 2nd printing of the poster for an October 23, 1966, Sunday afternoon show at San Francisco’s Fillmore Auditorium, featuring The Yardbirds, and Country Joe and the Fish.

This double bill featured a British marquee act and a local Bay Area staple. The Yardbirds place in guitar history is firm, and this incarnation featured both Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page on dual lead guitars. Berkeley’s Country Joe & The Fish pounded out their own combination of psychedelia and socially relevant messaging. Condition is superb!

*For fans of music history, this is widely thought to be one of the best performances of the rare double-lead combo of Beck and Page. Page had originally joined the band as replacement for the previous bass player, Paul Samwell-Smith. Eventually Page picked up the guitar when Beck missed some tour dates due to illness. When Beck returned, Page stayed on with the guitar while Chris Dreja (who’d been playing rhythm) returned full time to the bass. This double guitar attack wouldn’t last long, and many feel this Fillmore show was the peak for this lineup.
