Description


Track Record promo card for The Jimi Hendrix Experience, 4 x 6, dated October 1967, signed on the reverse in blue ballpoint, “Jimi Hendrix, Keep Kool.” Reverse lists catalog numbers for four singles, “Hey Joe...Purple Haze...The Wind Cries Mary...The Burning of the Midnight Lamp,” and the trio’s recently released debut LP, “Are You Experienced.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient, a young Danish journalist who was interviewing Hendrix for his school magazine, in part: “The autograph is written on January the 7. 1968…The short story is that 3 schoolboys…contacted the road manager Lemmy Kilmister for an appointment between two concerts, which we got. And Jimi Hendrix was very relaxed and gave us all the time we needed, but outside the door the big Danish and Swedish newspapers were waiting. And when we were finished the time was up and they didn’t get in.” Of special interest is the photot showing Hendrix taken during the interview; one which shows a table with a number of promotional cards, and another in which this very promo card is held by the recipient, about to be handed to Hendrix for his signature.Of special interest is the photo showing Hendrix’s bandaged right hand, which he injured just four days prior.

Arriving in Gothenburg on January 3, 1968, for their four-show tour of Sweden and Denmark, Jimi and his band wasted no time in beginning the party. After a long night out, they returned to the Hotel Opalen, where the staff soon began receiving complaints. Upon entering Hendrix’s room at four in the morning, the staff found that his drunken rampage had ended with a punch through the hotel window—and a seriously injured Hendrix. He was taken to a hospital to receive stitches in his right hand and charged with criminal damage; luckily the Swedish authorities granted special permission so the band could travel to Denmark for the tour’s penultimate show. Augmented by its fantastic provenance and mention of the band’s young road manager—heavy metal legend and Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister—this is an exceptionally desirable promo card dating to the Experience’s brief yet notorious Scandinavian layover. Pre-certified REAL.
