Lou Reed... First solo act and review - in Greenwich Village...

Item # 664224

July 31, 1977

THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York, Jan. 25 and Feb. 1, 1973 (a 2-issue set)

* Lou Reed - "Walk on the Wild Side" fame
* 1st solo performance and review
* two-issue set

The January issue has a full-page ad for his 1st performance as a solo artist. The February issue has a follow-up review. Nice to have both in a newspaper from the very "village" in which he performed.
An article featuring Yoko Ono is included as well as a piece by Jill Johnston. Multiple large and full-page ads for various musicians of the era are included.

Many of the other classic elements (Nat Hentoff, Jules Feifer, etc.) which helped make The Village Voice such an iconic publication are also present.

The issues are complete, have occasional edge tears, but are otherwise good. See images for details.

Note: 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.

Provenance note: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive. Quite honestly, due to content and provenance, how does one determine the value such a rare issue?
