I love old programs and advertising, and sometimes they are things that appear inside of records. Recently we had a collection that included dozens of clippings from Rolling Stone, each placed inside the appropriate album (so you could read an interesting interview with the Boss while you listened to Tunnel of Love, for instance).
These images are of a March 24, 1967 program for the Minnesota Symphony Orchestra which I found inside a copy of Mstislav Rostropovich’s recording of Benjamin Britten’s cello sonata (written for him I believe). The program that night, featuring Rostropovich, featured Stravinsky’s Symphony of the Psalms, Britten’s Symphony for Cello and Orchestra, Tcaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello and Orchestra and Rissky-Karsakov’s Easter Overture – a fine and varied selection for listeners interested in the cello.
Many of the ads are for local businesses – one interesting page includes an ad for the Twin Citian Magazine, Doc Evans’ residency at the Gaslight (where he recorded an album for Audiophile in 1967), and Hi-Fi Sound (then on South 12th Street).
