August 24, 1967

THE VILLAGE VOICE (weekly), Greenwich Village, New York City, Aug. 24, 1967

* Early Neil Diamond performance advertisement
* American singer - songwriter - musician
* Pre "Sweet Caroline (1969)" song fame

* "The Bitter End" nightclub - Manhattan

Page 27 has a small advertisement for a Neil Diamond performance at "The Bitter End" nightclub in Manhattan. This is very early for this famous singer/songwriter. (see image)
source: instagram: The Bitter End holds a special spot in New York City history and the story of Neil Diamond.
It’s the oldest rock and roll club in the city, opening in 1961 and was the spot to go to for songwriters.
Neil was hired to perform here during the early stages of his musical career in the 1960s. It is where he made his television debut in 1967.

I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Complete with 36 pages, tabloid size, one fold along the center, nice condition.
