This poster is signed by both artists in gold ink, Stanley Mouse and the late Alton Kelley. This poster, commonly known as the "Blue Rose," was created to mark the end of an era-the closing of Winterland in San Francisco. The Grateful Dead, as well as the Blues Brothers and the New Riders of the Purple Sage appeared in this New Year's show. This is one of the classic posters of the era and is a worthy addition to any collection. The final concert at Winterland, is regarded as one of the Dead's finest performances of all at the historic venue, playing for nearly six hours (which is all documented in the CD/DVD The Closing of Winterland). The final bow also included performances from New Riders Of The Purple Sage and The Blues Brothers. The Dead closed the doors and welcomed the New Year with high spirits, to say the least.
