    Description

    Jimi Hendrix Experience 1970 Sacramento, California Cal Expo Concert Poster. An original, colorful, first-printing psychedelic concert poster promoting The Jimi Hendrix Experience playing at Cal Expo in Sacramento, California at 3:00 PM on Sunday afternoon, April 26, 1970.

    This is one of the gorgeous ones... a deep, rich, sublime design of purple, orange, green, black and white with a magnificent purple horse and warrior being attacked by a serpent as the central image. Printed on thin, glossy paper, this poster damages very easily and yet we have a near-perfect specimen here, which is very difficult to find.

    This was the second date of Jimi's final, Cry of Love tour, which ran from April to September of '70 and would conclude with the last show of his life in Fehmarn, Germany. Jimi was playing with Billy Cox on bass and original Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell on skins by this time, with the poster giving their names up top. It also tells attendees to "Bring a Picnic Lunch, a Blanket & a Smile."

    An amazingly rare and collectible poster that Heritage has never had the pleasure of offering before, ever. And in the best condition possible. Measures 9 3/4" x 28" and grades to Mint condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
