An Oz subscription form doubling up as a flyer announcing the solo concert 'Music of the Mind' by Yoko Ono at the Saville Theatre on December 8th, 1967.

Oblong sheet (20.3x32.8cm.). Printed on recto only in rainbow colours by Copyrun Ltd., Tower Street, London. Illustrated with a photograph taken at the 14-Hour Technicolor Dream, with an image of Yoko Ono's face superimposed in the foreground (Yoko performed 'Cut Piece' at the event).


The Saville concert featured the world premiere of 'The Fog Machine', and, as the flyer adds, "Yoko's Film No4 will be shown in the Men's Room during the concert. All those who attend are asked to please bring a mirror with you." The left edge provides a subscription coupon designed to be completed, detached and sent off with 30/- to Oz magazine in return for a subscription ("2 Free Back Issues Will Be Sent Immediately!!!"). A flyer printing the same image, but without the tear-off coupon, was inserted into some copies of Oz #8 (January 1968), most of which were printed in b/w, though there was also a rainbow colour variant, only one copy of which has been seen by this cataloguer. This earlier and larger state (by virtue of the coupon), precedes the concert, and was mailed out separately rather than inserted into a magazine.


Two old mailing folds, a fragment of sellotape, and the handwritten address of the recipient to verso, date stamped December 4th, 1967 (the recipient was Fred Hunter, who recorded Yoko Ono at The Destruction in Art Symposium in September 1966). The flyer is illustrated in b/w in Yes Yoko Ono (ed. Alexandra Munroe with Jon Hendricks; NY: Japan Society/Harry N. Abrams, 2000), incorrectly captioned as a poster (the poster, which isn't illustrated in the book, was a completely different design).


Slight handling wear and old creasing, o/w Very Good plus. Extremely rare.
