But let's worry about that tomorrow; we've got plenty of '71 goodies to tide us over for the time being. Here are some selected Voice ads and announcements dating from the Fillmore East's last six months of operation.
|1/14/71 issue, full-page ad.|
|3/18/71 issue. The previous week's "Scenes" column (issue now missing from the archive) had included a discussion on the market for Howdy Doody collectibles--was this gig booked before or after that article?|
|3/25/71 issue. Review in the 4/8/71 issue.|
|4/15/71 issue. There was also a nearby ad for Elliott Randall at the Fillmore, but most of it was cut off.|
|5/6/71 issue. There was an article, but naturally this issue has been removed too.|
|6/17/71 issue. Couldn't resist the bootleg record ad.|
Various Fillmore-related and other pertinent articles:
Buddy Miles concert review from the 1/14/71 "Riffs" column (link goes to a nearby ad).
Review of final shows in the 7/1/71 "Riffs" column.
Christgau on Bill Graham, 7/8/71 issue.
A report on the huge Grand Funk Railroad show at Shea told from the perspective of the technicians and stagehands, many of whom were Fillmore veterans--7/22/71 issue.
"Audience Guide for the Wary," a cool run-down of various venues that attempted to fill the Fillmore void (Academy of Music, Beacon, etc.), in the 11/25/71 "Riffs" column (link goes to a nearby ad).
