Coincidentally, at the same time those amazing unpublished Rolling
Stones pics turned up, I found 3 incredible shots of Hendrix (and one of
opener Buddy Miles Express) that I am quite certain are also
unpublished! These are original prints that the photographer rather
crudely affixed to a copy of Axis: Bold As Love, and it looks as though
the album cover with photos was hanging on his/ her wall for many years,
as there are pin holes and very old tape on the backside. I thought
about removing them from the cover, but on its own it is a remarkable
piece of folk art!
These were found at The Alameda, CA Antiques Fair, and I'm thinking that the person I bought them from is a dumpster diver.
As Buddy Miles is the opening act and the region I found these, I'm just about 100% sure they are from Winterland, San Francisco October 1968.
"New Yorker Bob Egan has one cool job title. The self-styled ‘pop culture detective’ spends his time tracking down the exact spots famous pop culture events took place. Once sure he’s got the right location an album cover was taken, or a famous film or television show was filmed, he documents, photographs and maps it on his website Pop Spots, superimposing the original vinyl cover on to the location as it looks today. It’s a treasure trove for the music nut and the ultimate travel guide for pop pilgrims. Never walk down Sullivan Street, Greenwich Village without Neil Young’s ‘After The Gold Rush’ on your iPod again." Link via Rock 'n' Roll Snob
"One of underground rock’s most unusual stories of the 1970s, the tale of an obscure debut LP by a Detroit singer-songwriter named Rodriguez becoming a source of hope and inspiration to the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa, is the basis for the thought-provoking new film, SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN. The original motion picture soundtrack album will be available starting July 24th through Legacy Recordings, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. The vinyl version of the soundtrack will be released by Light In The Attic Records."
If you've never heard Rodriguez you definitely should check him out. Link.
"In 1964, photographer Michael Rogier traveled to Tokyo to photograph Japanese teenagers. What came back was a moody and evocative document of jazz heads, pill-poppers, all-night benders, Tokyo Beatles, and a generation of young people pushing against Japan’s societal pressure to conform." via Teenage
