Page 43 has a nice full page advertisement for "BILLY JOEL" gigs at Max's Kansas City nightclub in Manhattan. (see images) He would perform here 6 nights in a row.
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.
Complete in 96 pages, one fold across the center, small library stamp on the front page, minor margin wear, nice condition.

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