Scarce vintage program for the 'Sounds '68' concert at London's Royal Albert Hall on July 7, 1968, eight pages, 8.5 x 10.5, signed on the front cover in black ballpoint by Jimi Hendrix. In very good to fine condition, with light staining, moderate handling wear, and a central vertical fold. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient, which reads, in part: "This Jimi Hendrix autograph was obtained by myself and my mother on Sunday 7 July 1968 at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Jimi was in the audience watching the show, seated behind us in one of the lower boxes. My mother was in the music business at the time and would frequently get tickets to a lot of music shows which she would take me to, even though I was only 11 years old and wasn't always happy to go. People were going to get Jimi's autograph while he was sitting down, but we managed to get his autograph on leaving when we were walking out. We saw him outside as he was waiting with his entourage for a taxi. My mum would always remark how polite he was and looking at me said 'fans were getting younger.'" Amid finishing touches on Electric Ladyland, and a day after performing at the Woburn Music Festival, Hendrix played the part of spectator at the 'Sounds '68' concert, a Keystone fundraiser for the National Association of Boys' Clubs. The concert was headlined by The Move and featured other acts like The Byrds, The Easybeats, The Bonzo Dog Band, Joe Cocker, and The Alan Bown. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks.
