Interesting rare flyer of one of Angus Maclise's performances at the Filmaker's Cinematheque December 65 - just after leaving the VU. Great futuristic design!

It has a distinct 50s/60s sci-fi futuristic feel, right down to the "SPECTRO-MACH 1" reference.

I didn't bid in the end (expensive Christmas!) so it wasn't me Alfredo ; )
Thought it was quite reasonable $76.55 for such an interesting flyer.

Same here, I was only bidder and had to leave at time of ending, wrongly thought it would be enough ... a shame. I have the original Village Voice Film-Maker´s ads, so it was a nice addition ...anyway

I've never really understood why the stock singles are so much rarer than the promos; if as a record company you are going to the trouble of making some stock singles, why not actually press up a proper amount? What is the point of seemingly only releasing a few...?

Just a guess , but I would assume that any unsold or unordered stock singles were destroyed by the record company. promos(D.J. singles) were kept around
longer by radio stations.
