March 17, 1966

THE VILLAGE VOICE, Greenwich Village, New York, March 17, 1966

* American singer James Brown "Mr. Dynamite"
* Madison Square Garden concert advertisement
* The Byrds - rock band upcoming performances ad

Page 16 has a small advertisement for a "Mr. Dynamite James BROWN" performance at Madison Square Garden. He is known as the "Godfather of Soul".
Another ad on the same is for "The Byrds" concerts in the area. (see images)
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 32 pages, tabloid-size, one crease across 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. Rare as such.

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.
