The Faces: The Rock'n'Roll Circus

Dave Marsh, Creem, April 1973

THE LAST WEEK of April 1973 the American Retreaders Association shared the Executive Inn, Louisville, Kentucky, with a collection of dwarves, freaks, dealers, high-wire acts, aerial motorcyclists, a few journalists, a mother-and-son balancing act, a Chinese woman who dangles from arena ceilings "suspended only by the hair of her head," and a couple of rock 'n' roll bands.
