Here we have a very special poster produced for Vermont’s Phish in 1991. This is a Fall Tour Blank produced for shows on their fall tour. This particular example was from their show at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota on October 6th, 1991. It was photocopied by the student activities group with hand written event information at the bottom before the concert and posted around campus to promote the show. 

 

The art was designed by the band's first art designer, Jim Pollock. His legacy with the band began by making simple fliers for their shows in the late 1980's. He designed the cover of their first album "Junta", and later produced T-shirts and stickers. Pollock has continued his decades-long relationship with the band and has even created posters and vinyl re-issue artwork for Phish in recent years.

 

By 1991, Phish was beginning to grow from a college dorm bar-band to playing larger clubs and small theaters. After a 14-date summer tour accompanied by the Giant Country Horns, Phish went into the studio to record their album "A Picture of Nectar" during most of July and August - before embarking on this fall tour. They performed 49 shows on the 1991 fall tour between September and December. Phish fans and collectors are aware that material from their 1.0 era is extremely difficult to find.
