Here is the original full page advert promoting the anti-gun single ‘Saturday Night Special taken from the band’s third studio LP, Nuthin’ Fancy. The ad appeared in Rolling Stone magazine in April, 1975.
It lists US ‘summer tour’ tour dates from 14 May – 6 July. The imagery used by MCA’s marketing department is unusual. It shows a woman holding a cosmetics compact mirror,checking her hair; two bottles of whisky; two lipsticks; a gun and what looks like two human brains!
If there is a subliminal message there, i’ve not worked it out yet. What do you think? What would the NRA say about Ronnie’s lyrics?
