Item # 704716

July 27, 1972

THE VILLAGE VOICE (weekly), Greenwich Village, New York City, July 27 1972

* The Rolling Stones North American Tour 1972
* Madison Square Garden concerts review
* "Exile on Main St." album
* Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts,


Two photos on the front page (which includes a photo of Mick Jagger), but starting on page 33, is a multi-page review of Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones with another photo of Jagger. 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 American Tour 1972, also known as the "Stones Touring Party", shortened to S.T.P.,[1] was a much-publicized and much-written-about concert tour of the United States and Canada in June and July 1972 by the Rolling Stones. Constituting the band's first performances in the United States following the Altamont Free Concert in December 1969, critic Dave Marsh would later 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 88 pages, one fold across the center , nice condition.
