This poster is signed in pencil by the artist Randy Tuten!

We have only offered this issue once before in our auction, and it was not SIGNED! The Grateful Dead in 1973 were on the cusp on a transition in their sound and songwriting. Pigpen was no longer in the mix and the keyboard style of Keith Godchaux created new textures in the Band. This poster designed by Randy Tuten advertised two nights in Providence during the month of September, however the first night (9/14) was cancelled at the last minute.

The show on the 15th rocked hard, and the soundboard recording has circulated between fans for decades as a deadhead favorite. This concert was one month prior to the release of their album "Wake of The Flood", which featured many of the newer tunes in the set including the full Weather Report Suite. Great, beautiful, eye-appealing art by Randy Tuten! Obviously, he "borrowed" the skeleton & roses likeness from prior imagery.
