Rock ‘n roll collector Scott Mussell is searching for a rare Philadelphia area concert poster. In February of 1968 Jimi Hendrix and his band The Experience played two shows at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia. “A mysterious artist known as ‘Strange’ produced one of the most fantastic psychedelic images for a poster advertising the show” Mussell states. The multi color image features a silhouette of the band made up of extremely detailed tiny images that combine to produce an outstanding visual- even from the notably colorful era. Mussell is seeking the poster in any condition.
“It’s one of the posters I’d love to have on my wall. A real prize especially for a guy living in Pennsylvania,” Mussell adds. The poster was produced on thin paper and is a large size coming in around 24x34.75 inches. He’s willing to pay $3000- on condition- for an example of the psychedelic masterpiece.
Mussell is also interested in obtaining other Hendrix posters from around the country especially examples from the Philadelphia area including one from the Spectrum and another from Temple Stadium. Notably the Temple show came only a few days after the massacre of students at Kent State University and Hendrix opened the show with comments about the incident. “The Temple Outdoor poster is really interesting to me as I love historical connotations. I collect items related to American radicalism and the fact Hendrix spoke about the events at Kent adds a special wrinkle for me,” Mussell noted, adding that he would pay $1500- on condition- for an example of the 12x18 inch poster. If you have examples of any of these rock ‘n roll artifacts or other related materials don’t hesitate to contact Mussell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515.707.7250 anytime.
