Jimi Hendrix Featured On Official Record Store Day Poster
The Hendrix estate's camp sent over these details: The poster was created from a photo of Jimi Hendrix that was taken in a small record store in New England by Ira Rosen just prior the release of the landmark album, Are You Experienced.
Jimi's sister, Janie Hendrix had this to say, "It's entirely appropriate that an image of Jimi Hendrix is on the official Record Store Day poster. He was an avid music fan and record collector himself and, of course, his recordings are among the most enduring and cherished of all time. Jimi's musical legacy and influence grow with every passing year so, in a sense, he makes Record Store Day last much, much longer than 24 hours."
Only 5,000 copies of the poster will be made and will be free to Hendrix fans at fully participating record stores in the United States.
