Rare Photographs

Unlike promo photographs, these either carry the stamp of the photographer or the commissioning publication on the reverse. Most will have been hand printed by the photographer, or a member of their staff. In the case of the Hendrix images, all were printed and signed by the photographer. More will be added including images by Dezo Hoffmann and Linda McCartney.

All prices quoted include UK first class postage.

Stamped with the publication date November 17th 1962. The scan on the right shows the photo in printed form. Needless to say, the actual Melody Maker will be available for sale.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Green's Playhouse. Glasgow, December 5th, 1967.

The photographs seen here were taken by Ronnie Anderson, best known as an internationally acclaimed sports photographer. Between shows at Green's Playhouse, he was lucky enough to get backstage with the band and took these previously unseen photographs.

Back in 1993, I contacted him and set up a deal where he would produce a limited edition of 300 numbered signed prints for sale. The U.K. rock magazine, "Vox" was interested enough to schedule a review and full page print but this was postponed at the last minute due to Frank Zappa's death. Without the publicity, the project was abandoned and to my knowledge, no other prints were ever made.

Each print is approximately 304mm X 407mm with an image size of 270mm X 275mm. Any glare on an image is purely on the scan.

An important historical photograph. Photographed by Harvey Mann for the Daily Sketch and stamped May 11th, 1967.
