Description

David Byrd used a drop-bow compass to draw the little circles, and he labored to get Hendrix's hair "... Just right." Hendrix was at the height of his career in mid-1968, and he did two shows for the one-night-only concert. Sly & the Family Stone, not mentioned on the poster, was the second band. Just starting to get airplay, Sly was relatively unknown and was heckled by a crowd that couldn't have cared less who was opening up for Hendrix.

The Vault's retro and vintage pin collection ranges from round, metal, campaign-style mementos of specific concerts, events and political statements to square tokens of promotional album imagery. Many bear the likeness of a performer, album cover or the salient graphic from a poster that advertised an event. Vintage pins from as early as 1966 tout the coolest shows and hottest rockers, while our retro designs bring the greatest icons of image and sound to the lapel and knapsack.
