The Who and Cream make their American debuts at these fabled Easter shows in Manhattan

Official program for Murray the K's Music in the Fifth Dimension musical showcase at New York's RKO Radio Theater on March 28, 1967, sixteen pages, 9 x 12, featuring assorted advertisements and images of all the scheduled acts, including: The Who, The Cream, Simon and Garfunkel, The Young Rascals, Mandala, Phil Ochs, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Mitch Ryder, Jim and Jean, and more. Program features ownership notations on a few pages. In very good to fine condition, with light handling wear. While Murray the K's traditional Easter break shows were a can't miss for young rock and roll enthusiasts, the 1967 event, which featured five shows a day at the RKO Theater from March 25th-April 2nd, proved particularly momentous due to the American debuts of unknown British bands The Cream and The Who. Much has been written about this fabled Easter week of performances on and off stage produced by Murray the K. An extremely rare program considered one of the 'holy grails' of rock concert programs.
