Hendrix back in Leicester Square
September 2004

an exhibition of artifacts, stage costumes and psychedelic art

Decidedly non-acid artwork for Green's Playhouse in Glasgow. In 1967, ex-Radio London DJ, Pete Drummond, toured with Hendrix and other Fab Forty Faves.

Right, is an autumn 1967 poster from London's Saville Theatre, which was leased in the 60s by Brain Epstein and NEMS Enterprises. In 1966, NEMS, in conjunction with Radio London, staged a Christmas pop show at the theatre (now the Odeon cinema, Covent Garden). One upcoming act advertised on the poster is 'Grocer Jack' himself, Keith West. On this occasion, he's listed separately from Tomorrow.

Autographs and signed album sleeve of 'Are You Experienced'.

The album contains 'Stone Free', the B-side of 'Hey Joe'. The song was first published by Radio London-associated music publishing company, Pall Mall Music.

There was no copy of the1966 Pall Mall contract in evidence, but the exhibition organisers say that there is insufficient room for them to display all the memorabilia simultaneously. Their intention is to regularly change the displays to incorporate different material.

There was also nothing relating to the bizarre 1966 Hendrix appearance at the Radio London Boxing Day family afternoon at Billy Walker's Upper Cut Club.

At the end of the Marquee exhibition, all the items will be auctioned.

Buy 'Are You Experienced' on CD (with completely different artwork) by clicking on the photo, right.
