One week in New York in the early-’60s

December 24, 2013
An ad from the Village Voice in November 1963.
New York in the early-’60s, when you could see Dylan, Miles, Sam Cooke within a few days of each others.

This was sent in by a reader in response to ‘Beyond Llewyn Davis,’ as a sort of proof-of-concept regarding the remarkable ferment happening in New York in the early 1960s.

No exact date, but it seems extremely likely to be from the Village Voice in November 1963. [Ed note: The photo of Bob Dylan matches the one from the cover of "The Times They Are A-Changin'" and it appears the Sam Cooke/Mary Wells show at the Apollo took place on the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated.]

All our thanks to Jim Eigo for this fascinating time capsule.
