THE VILLAGE VOICE (weekly), Greenwich Village, New York, Feb. 22, 1973

* New Riders of the Purple Sage - country rock band

Page 41 has a nice full page advertisement for a "New Riders of the Purple Sage" concert at the Felt Forum in Manhattan. (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.
Other interesting items from the counter-culture era. Complete in 96 pages, tabloid-size, one crease across the center, very minor margin wear, 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.

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.
