A collection of exceptional but presumably unpublished images of Jimi Hendrix performing at New York City's Hunter College on March 2, 1968. Seven capture the guitar hero on stage: with his signature Stratocaster, kneeling before a giant stack of amplifiers, playing with his teeth, etc. The eighth is a candid portrait, likely snapped backstage. Though we've been unable to determine the photographer, the photos are of clear professional caliber and bear a certain re- semblance to the work of legendary rock-and-roll photographer El- liott Landy. An iconic selection of original vintage slides capturing the signature style of a rock legend.
