Jimi Hendrix – Near Mint UK 1st Press “Band of Gypsys” LP, With Withdrawn Puppet/Doll Cover
An beautiful original 1970 UK first pressing of Jimi Hendrix’s classic live album Band of Gypsys, with the withdrawn “puppet” or “doll” cover, on Track Records.
This legendary album cover, depicting Hendrix, the Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones, Bob Dylan and UK disc jockey John Peel as dolls, was quickly pulled off the market by Track Records, and replaced with a more conventional cover featuring a live photograph of Hendrix. No one is quite sure what Track Records was thinking when they dreamed this up, but it’s been highly collectible since it was taken off the market in 1970. Reissued many times around the world, this is the original UK release.
The cover is in Near Mint- condition, with some very light handling creases and a barely noticeable ding to the top left corner. The disc is in Near Mint- condition. One of the nicest examples we’ve seen.
