Item # 700793

January 11, 1968

THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York, Jan.11, 1968

* American musician - guitarist Frank Zappa
* "The Mothers of Invention" rock band

* Sally Kempton editorial with photo

The front page has a heading: "Zappa & the Mothers: Ugly Can Be Beautiful" with lead-in: "Anti-Idols" and photo showing Zappa with his wife. (see images) I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
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.
This is the complete 56 page issue, one fold along the center, nice condition.

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

Alert: Many issues of The Village Voice contain articles and/or photos which some consider offensive, and are certainly inappropriate for children. Please purchase with discretion.
