WIRED !!! JIMI HENDRIX POSTER ! 1969 Jimi Hendrix EXPERIENCE DARIEN HOUSE Poster Gunther Kieser - SEALED SINCE 1969 ! ! ! 100% authentic Jimi Hendrix Experience Poster from the late 60's. NOTE: STILL SEALED ! ! ! VERY RARE. The poster displays beautifully. Measuring at approximately 25 inches wide by 35 inches tall, this poster will stand out making it a fantastic conversation piece for years to come as well as a great addition to any collection. No tears, pin holes. Mint to near mint. The 1969 Jimi Hendrix Experience poster, also known as the Stuttgart poster, also deserves a mention. It was sold as a souvenir at the April-May 1969 US concerts. The story is that Kieser's image turned out to be so popular with the public that it was decided to have the poster reproduced but with an imaginary date and venue as not to confuse it with the original concert posters (the same thing was done with Kieser's Fleetwood Mac poster the following year). The poster was distributed by Jack Rennert's Darien House in New York and subsequently sold at the Spring 1969 US shows. Rennart was a huge fan of Kieser's art and had distributed his posters in America years before the Hendrix poster. There are two different sizes of the Stuttgart poster, but for an entirely different reason. The first printing was in the large A0 format and it was printed on the same uncoated paper stock as the concert poster and the poster program. Most of these were destroyed in a warehouse fire and only very few copies survived. This is the rare version, which was sold at the Spring 1969 US tour and is slightly smaller and is printed on light coated paper stock. The fact it measures approximately 23 by 33 inches indicates it was probably printed in the US regardless of the fact it says "Printed in West Germany". A great 1969 promo concert poster for the Jimi Hendrix Experience in Germany, with the famous “wire-hair” image designed by poster artist Günther Kieser. This image was a PROMO-POSTER - similar in style to the “tour blank” used for a number of dates on the Experience’s January 1969 tour of Germany. For each tour date, the appropriate information was printed in the white space below. Knowledgeable poster collectors are aware that the January 15 1969 version of this poster from Stuttgart was simply a souvenir merchandising poster sold at Jimi’s concerts, in addition to other outlets. Therefore, this version is not a poster advertising an actual concert date. The Gunther Kieser Hendrix concert posters were used to sell tickets for the guitarist’s 1969 German tour dates of January 11 in Hamburg; January 12 in Düsseldorf; January 13 in Cologne; January 14 in Münster; January 15 in Munich; January 16 in Nuremburg; January 17 in Frankfurt; January 19 in Stuttgart (not Jan 15, like the merchandising poster); and January 23 in Berlin. The complete wording as it reads on this poster, from top to bottom: Jimi Hendrix – Presented by Lippmann-Rau (the promoters). Printed the bottom in white space: Experience. Under this was supposed to be printed the opening act. 15.1.69: January, 15 1969 Mittwoch: Wednesday 20 Uhr: 10pm Beethovensaal (the venue and ticket price. In this case, The Beethoven Hall, which is the largest room in the Culture and Convention Centre.Stuttgart: The city in Germany Missing is:im Vorverkauf; Phonohaus; Pavillon der Städt. Bühnen; Verkehrsverein; Jahrhunderthalle und bek. Vorverkaufsstellen (the locations to buy tickets, as the promotional poster did not have this). Anyway you look at it, this Jimi Hendrix concert poster by Kieser is a true masterpiece of beautiful design and colors that demands respect almost half-a-century later. It remains one of the most enduring images, of any kind, from the psychedelic Sixties.. MOST POSTERS IN THIS SALE ARE NEW OLD STOCK - AND STILL SEALED!
