Description


Get That Feeling album by Jimi Hendrix and Curtis Knight, signed and inscribed on the front cover in black felt tip, "To Freddie, Jimi Hendrix." In very good to fine condition, with light scuffing, and several small surface creases. The record is included. The recipient of this signed album was 'Famous' Freddy Vonwyl, a well-known figure in the Swiss music scene during the 1960s and 1970s. A frequent presence in backstage areas and night clubs, Vonwyl became a trusted friend and acquaintance to many touring musicians, offering his services to fulfill their many needs and requests, no matter how garish, bawdy, or illegal. When Vonwyl died in 1999 his collection of signed memorabilia—the majority inscribed to 'Freddy' or 'Famous Freddy'—began to trickle into the public market following its discovery by Lucerne collector Toni Buhler. The consignor notes that Vonwyl obtained this signature on May 31, 1968, after the legendary 'Pop-Monsterkonzert' at Zurich's Hallenstadion, a concert that featured nearly forty British musicians, including the Move, Traffic, John Mayall, and Eric Burdon. Rarely does a signed Hendrix album with such terrific provenance appear in the marketplace.
