Zig Zag Magazine Album Ads

Earlier this week we bought a bunch of back issues of Creem and Zig Zag from a customer. While flipping through them, I noticed all of these amazing ads for albums that were coming out at the time. They're all records that I like a lot, and I felt like I should share their greatness. These are all taken from issues of Zig Zag. All the issues are from the 70's. The magazine itself is a mind-blowing and hugely informative treasure trove. There's all sorts of cool stuff inside these issues ranging from hand-written fold-out music scene family trees to interviews with John Cipollina telling insane acid trip stories. If you ever stumble upon some of these I highly suggest picking them up. (Blake)
