1969 review of the Rolling Stones days after their Madison Square Garden performances...



Item # 666109

December 4, 1969

THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York City, December 4, 1969

* Lengthy review of The Rolling Stones
* Post Madison Square Garden concert - 1969 U.S. Tour


Advertised on the front page (which includes a photo of Mick Jagger), but starting on page 42, is a lengthy, multi-page review of Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones. Multiple photos of the band are included. Nice to have this review only days after their Madison Square shows.

Wikipedia Notes: The Rolling Stones' 1969 Tour of the United States took place in November 1969. Rock critic Robert Christgau called it "history's first mythic rock and roll tour",[1] while rock critic Dave Marsh would write that the tour was "part of rock and roll legend" and one of the "benchmarks of an era."

Provenance: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive.

Background: The Village Voice was an American counterculture newspaper known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. It introduced free-form, high-spirited, and passionate journalism into the public discourse - a tradition it maintained throughout its 60+ year history. It is quite common to find great political cartoons, satirical cartoons and articles, thought-provoking editorials, and ads and reviews for both concerts and theater productions - both on and off Broadway. Many iconic writers and musicians credit their appearance in The Village Voice for at least a portion of their success.

Alert: Many issues of The Village Voice contain articles and/or photos which some consider offensive, and are certainly inappropriate for children. If purchasing, please do so with discretion.

Complete in 80 pages, margins are a bit wrinkled, but in overall good condition.
