Product Description

David Edward Byrd's 1968 1st Version Jimi Hendrix Fillmore East Poster with Concept Sketch. This preceded the now-famous orange final version Experience poster which included all the members of the band at Hendrix's request. This is a signed artist proof David published in 2013. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) and guarantee. Even though this first poster was not published, it has a great history and is Byrd's preference of the two. "At the very back of a yellowed folder containing old pencil sketches," he said, "I found this Hendrix idea and realized what a strange journey it has had. Jimi wanted all 3 band members to be in the poster, so I ditched this and used the now-famous orange one. But in 1970 I was asked to do a poster for a musical about the Rock recording recording industry called Soon, starring then unknowns Richard Gere, Barry Bostwick, Peter Allen & Nell Carter! It ran for 3 days. After I decided to create a finished painting from the original pencil, I made a subsequent decision to create the art as I originally created its successor — as a backpainted film positive, the same process used before the digital era to create animation cells. I also decided against the black background (which I DID use on the Soon poster) in favor of a deep blue-green. For me, this somehow captures the Experience of seeing and hearing him live that night, the only time I got to see him perform."
