Item # 702091

December 04, 1969

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

* The Rolling Stones American Tour 1969
* Madison Square Garden concert review
* "History's first mystic rock and roll tour "
* Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, Mick Taylor

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. I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
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", 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."
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.
Complete in 80 pages, one fold across the center , nice condition.
