1969 Ads Revisited: Fillmore East

Selected 1969 Voice ads for the Fillmore East.  I didn't bother saving the weekly listing ads, because show dates have been compiled elsewhere.  The focus here is on individual show ads sponsored by record companies, ads for unusual (often non-rock) events at the hall, and other Fillmore-related ephemera.

EDIT 3/19/2012:  Here's a post about the Fillmore East from the Bowery Boogie blog which I missed last week.

It is so nice to see the photo that I took of Jeff Beck in that Fillmore East display ad. Jazz&Pop Magazine used the same shot for their June, 1969 cover. I took it when I was 15. If I squint, I can see my credit on the bottom right corner of the ad.

Thanks for using it again.
