We are pleased to present this original Village Theater flyer for the first time in our auction! This was produced to advertise Vanilla Fudge and The Yardbirds in New York on Friday November 3rd, 1967. The Village Theater later became the Fillmore East! This was apparently the beginning of a week long engagement, through November 8th for the Yardbirds at the venue, according to newspaper ads from the era. 

 

This Yardbirds concert took place just months after the band released their 4th and final album "Little Games". It was their first album recorded after becoming a quartet featuring Jimmy Page as the only lead guitarist, and Chris Dreja switching to bass guitar. Featured on the flyer are Long Island's early psych band, Vanilla Fudge also on the bill for November 3rd. The group's original members recorded five albums together between 1967–69 before disbanding. When Led Zeppelin first toured the United States in early 1969, they opened for the Vanilla Fudge at some of their shows. It's a miracle this original flyer has survived all these years, in any condition!
