1973 Ads: Other Venues and Miscellany, Part 3

News flash: Da Capo Press is putting out Ed Sanders' '60s memoirs, entitled Fug You, in June!  Details and much more in a new interview with him at  Also check out a fab Facebook group I've just discovered, NY Rocks.  It's run by a fellow NYC expatriate to Canada--one who, unlike me, was actually there for most of this stuff!!!

Oops!  This was from the 2/1/73 issue but I missed it on my first go 'round. 

9/6/73 issue:

I'm no platform shoe fetishist, but I like this commercial artist's ultra-glam style.

Bonny Jugs?  Is that a band or an ecdysiast?

I really should have given Kenny's Castaways its own post, but I wasn't expecting their listings to be as interesting as they ended up being.

This is the first time I've ever seen him without facial hair.

Film ads are a whole 'nother realm entirely.  I love them and I would copy more of them, but the music ads are overwhelming enough as it is.  Had to give some props to the Elgin though.
