Ultra-Rare AOR 3.165 Jimi Hendrix Electric Factory Poster

Ultra-Rare AOR 3.165 Jimi Hendrix Electric Factory Poster

Item Description:

This rare Jimi Hendrix poster was used at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia on February 21-22, 1968. It was designed by “Strange,” who is unknown and designed no other poster we know of. This was the first poster that the Electric Factory produced and it is incredibly rare. This show is somewhat legendary and best described by Larry Magid, co-owner of the Electric Factory: “A few weeks after (our) opening, Jimi Hendrix performed. He had painted his hands with Day-Glo colors. With the rest of the stage darkened, a spotlight caught them. For a few moments, all you could see were his hands, flying up and down the neck of the guitar, flying over the strings. At the end of his performance, Hendrix set fire to the guitar."



These posters were printed on thin stock and due to their large size, were easily damaged. Of the ten or so known examples, none are anywhere near Mint and most are restored. The example offered here is the only one we have seen that has not faded significantly—its colors are amazing. While it has restoration and is linen backed, it is the best-looking one we have seen and it would look incredible in a frame.

Condition:

Apparent Near Mint Minus. Restoration to repair border damage and a few punctures in the body. Because this poster is linen backed, it is impossible to tell exactly what was done, but under black light, most of the restoration appears to be on the upper edge.

Medium:

A Buyers Premium of 15% will be added to the hammer price of all lots.
