Description

Promo photo produced for Hendrix's one-off Sporthalle show, signed at his only in-store autograph session: Cologne, Germany, 1969

Exceptional vintage 4 x 5.75 cardstock promo photo produced especially for a one-off concert at the Sporthalle in Cologne, Germany, on January 13, 1969, prominently signed in black felt tip, "Jimi Hendrix." Jimi did an in-store signing at the Du Monde Book & Record Shop in Germany on January 13, 1969, where he signed these promo card photos to promote his concert appearance later that evening at the Sporthalle. In very good to fine condition, with two tiny pin holes to the top, light overall creasing, and a central horizontal fold.

The autograph session at the Du Monde Book & Record Shop was the only in-store signing that Hendrix ever did—had it occurred in New York or London, it would have been absolute pandemonium. News footage of the event shows a relaxed atmosphere as he signs these special promotional cards for fans, with sketch artists also covering the event. Later that day, the Jimi Hendrix Experience performed a fantastic set that included 'Foxy Lady,' 'Voodoo Child,' and 'Purple Haze.'
