Jimi Hendrix: and the gods made love

In the beginning were The Beatles. They brought music. Then Dylan came and he brought the Word. And then there was Hendrix. His gift was the guitar. And with it, loudness, dedication, tenderness, passion, rage, ecstasy, sex, the Universe and stars, and the first rays of the rising sun.

Hendricks took almost 4 years to shape his vision: from 1966 until his fucking early and meaningless death at the age of 27 on September 18, 1970. And if we say frankly, we mean a much more specific period of time (namely 20 months), during which the albums “You You Experienced”, “Axis: Bold as Love” and “Electric Ladyland”, are Hendrix’s only studio work , completed during his lifetime, were still in dreams.

“Tattoo You”, The Rolling Stones, 1981. A promotional poster created by Peter Corriston, whose authorship is the legendary cover of Led Zeppelin’s album “Physical Graffiti”.

A poster in support of the 1981 American Rolling Stones tour. The poster was a new type of deal for that time: it combined the name of the group and the logo of the perfume company “Jovan”, which invested several million dollars in sponsoring the tour. The Jovan logo was also printed on the tour’s concert tickets.

Promotional poster released before the release of Paul Weller’s album “Stanley Road” in 1995. The poster was painted by Peter Blake, famous for his masterpiece – the cover of “Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” for The Beatles.

The promo poster for Bryan Ferry’s album “Slave To Love”, 1985. Art with a sexual connotation in the style of Hollywood films of the 1940s, depicting a woman with her hands tied, once caused discontent among the audience. Designed by Anthony Price, Brian Ferry and Simon Pexley. Continue reading
