Fantastic vintage hardcover autograph book, 6 x 4.75, beautifully signed and inscribed inside in blue ballpoint, "Love and Happiness to Louise forever, your things are beautiful, Jimi Hendrix," and signed on a different page in red ballpoint by Mick Taylor, Charlie Watts, and Bill Wyman. Other signers in the book include: Broderick Crawford, the Bluesbreakers (Mick Taylor, Colin Allen, and one other), and George Biondo. In fine condition, with wear to the album's covers. Accompanied by individual full letters of authenticity from JSA for the Hendrix and Rolling Stones signed pages. A marvelous combination of rock and roll icons.
The signatures in this autograph book were acquired by Abbott DuGally in the late 60’s at his well known shop at the time called Native Elegance on Hollywood Boulevard, which was frequented by celebrities in the music and motion picture business for their custom clothing, imports and exotic custom made items. Abbott made several custom jackets for Jimi during this time and on one occasion Abbot asked Jimi to sign this book for his niece (Louise) who was a big fan of his. Jimi gladly complied, writing, “Love and Happiness to Louise forever" (with an added heart), and also added for the store, “your things are beautiful." This autograph book also features two unique Mick Taylor signatures, one from 1968 (with Colin Allen) while he was a member of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers and again in 1969 less than an year afterwards as the new guitarist of the Rolling Stones; fellow Stones members Charlie Watts and Bill Wyman also signed on the same page. A business card from DuGally's Native Elegance is included.
