Jimi Hendrix Featured On Official Record Store Day Poster

An iconic Jimi Hendrix photo is being used as the official poster for Record Store Day 2013 which will be taking place on April 20th at independent record stories across America.

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.

Experience Hendrix will also be celebrating Record Store Day 2013 with the exclusive release of a limited edition individually numbered 7" vinyl single featuring the original mono mixes of "Hey Joe" b/w "Stone Free" which have been unavailable since their original 1966 release.

People, Hell and Angels, an new album premiering twelve previously unreleased studio recordings ('68 - '70) completed by Hendrix will be available at independent record stores starting on March 5, 2013.
