Jimi Hendrix Experience 1967 signed concert poster

Original bright yellow 20 x 30 promotional poster for a Jimi Hendrix Experience concert at Hastings Pier, England, on October 22, 1967, signed on the back in blue ballpoint, “Jimi Hendrix,” “Noel Redding,” and “Mitch.” Reverse is also signed in blue ballpoint by Graham Nash of the Hollies. In very good condition, with intersecting storage folds, with all three of the band’s signatures on a single panel, scattered creases, two small holes to top corners, and a small area of paper loss to lower left.

Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the son of the original recipient which reads, in part: “My mother regularly attended gigs at Hasting Pier during the sixties and seventies. Whilst at the October 1967 Jimi Hendrix Experience gig she told me she got chatting to Jimi’s sister and was dancing in the crowd. After the gig she invited my mother back to the band’s dressing room/trailer to meet them all. I’m not sure if she pulled the poster off of the wall before or after this, but once she was with the band she asked them all to sign the poster for her. Since that night it has been kept folded up in a drawer with other autographs.” Hendrix was in the middle of his second European tour in support of the band’s critically acclaimed album Are You Experienced. A vibrant example—on a seldom seen format—with direct and personal association to a Hendrix concert. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.

Jimi Hendrix Experience Vintage Ink Signatures

Vintage ink signatures, “Love to you forever, thank you—I wish you the best of love constantly, Jimi Hendrix EXP,” “Backwards, Noel Redding xxx,” and “Love, Mitch xxx,” on a light blue 5 x 6.5 sheet, with a pencil sketch of Hendrix in the center of the sheet, almost certainly done by the fan before meeting the band for their signatures. Double-matted and framed with a printed descriptive caption which states, “Signed in 1967 at a gig in London,” to an overall size of 16.5 x 19.5. In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of Hendrix’s signature, toning along upper portions of folds, and some scattered light creases. Hendrix played London several times with such luminaries in the crowd as John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, and Eric Clapton taking in the shows. A one-of-a-kind set of signatures from the legendary power trio, with a very lengthy sentiment from Hendrix, acquired during their rise to prominence. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.

RR Auctions Jimi Hendrix

Bob Dylan’s Bringing It All Back Home album signed on the front cover in blue ballpoint, “I Dig It Too, Jimi Hendrix,” and signed on the back cover in blue ballpoint by Experience member, “Mitch” [Mitchell]. Moderate skipping to signature and sentiment resulting in just the impressions of some of the letters and a fairly light but still mostly legible appearance, light contrast to end of last name of signature, scattered noticeable creases, soiling, and toning to covers, and owner’s notation on back cover, otherwise very good condition. The record is included, with the inside sleeve bearing several sketches and doodles in an unknown hand.

Accompanied by a 2011 letter of provenance from the original recipient, CP Lee, which reads, in part: “On the Tuesday 4 April 1967 Jimi Hendrix appeared on the BBC’s Dee Time TV Show…together with a friend…I went to the Studio at about 11 o’clock in the morning and after several hours of standing in the drizzle the side door opened and Jimi Hendrix and Mitch Mitchell stepped out…Mitchell went off leaving Jimi with us and he spent nearly 15 minutes talking with us…Maybe as a result the lack of an album and also because I was crazy about Bob Dylan, I’d taken along a copy of Dylan’s ‘Bringing It All Back Home.’ Because Dylan had disappeared from view after his motorbike crash I asked Jimi if he knew what had happened to him—’Yeah sure,’ said Jimi, ‘He’s fine, I spoke to him just a few weeks ago.’ I asked him if he’d sign the album and with a laugh he did and he wrote ‘I dig it too.’”…Jimi…then asked if we wanted to go for a drink (to the nearby Welcome Pub)…To my eternal regret, we said, ‘No, we had to go.’” Also accompanied by a copy of Lee’s book, When We Were Thin, which also recounts his meeting with Hendrix.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience appeared on the debut of Dee Time, a youth show hosted by Simon Dee, and the band’s wildness made the launch a success. Hendrix’s singles were already Top 10 hits in the UK and the Jimi Hendrix Experience would soon release its first album, Are You Experienced, in May of 1967. Mitchell was the drummer for the Jimi Hendrix Experience, which he joined in 1966. He would become Hendrix’s most valuable partner. The pair would frequently record together and as a result, were especially in sync during live sets.

That Hendrix signed a Bob Dylan album is fitting, as Dylan was one of his musical idols. “When I first heard him I thought, ‘You must admire the guy for having that much nerve to sing so out of key,’” said Hendrix. “But then I started listening to the words. He is giving me inspiration.” Dylan gave Hendrix confidence in his own voice as well. Hendrix would go on to cover Dylan songs such as “Like a Rolling Stone” and “All Along the Watchtower.” Dylan would later say to Hendrix, “I don’t know if anyone has done my songs better.” A remarkably symbolic signature tying together two of the most influential musicians of the twentieth century. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
