Description


Incredibly rare Woodstock Music Festival program, 8.5 x 11, signed in black ballpoint on his full-page image, “Jimi Hendrix.” Some light wear, soiling, and creasing to covers, a few ripples and creases to some of the pages, and some wear to binding, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient of the signature, which reads, in part: “I attended the Woodstock ‘Aquarian Exposition’ with a number or friends from my hometown in New Jersey. Given the awful traffic we had experienced coming in, we decided that the smart move would be to wait until everybody else left …We mostly hung out on and around our van parked alongside the main egress from the area, in a prime spot to observe traffic…At one point when the traffic came to a halt, the car directly in front of us was a station wagon with Mitch Mitchell, Billy Cox and Jimi Hendrix in the back seat. We crowded around the car and started schmoozing with them. I had my Woodstock Program in my hand and at some point Jimi took it from me. I recall him looking at his picture in it and handing it back to me…It was actually some time later that I realized that Jimi had signed my program. When he died a little more than a year later I felt a personal loss. In those twenty or so minutes he really connected in a real and personal way with us.” Scheduled to close the music festival on Sunday evening, several delays saw Hendrix and his band finally take the stage at 9:00 a.m. Monday morning, after much of the crowd had already left. Included in his 19-song set were such classics as ‘Foxy Lady,’ ‘Fire,’ ‘Voodoo Child,’ and his iconic rendition of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’ Even unsigned original Woodstock programs are quite scarce and highly sought-after; boasting a crisp, bold signature of the legendary guitarist, this is by far one of the most impressive Hendrix items ever to come to auction—the first we have ever seen, it is fit to be the cornerstone of a magnificent music collection.
