MORE NYC album art

Well, Alex has been running laps around me in our NYC album art back and forth. So, in desperate times like these, I'm breaking out my secret weapon: boobs. OK, OK, I mean, it sort of has something to do with NYC...The original cover of the third record by Jimi Hendrix, "Electric Ladyland," showed a harem of nude women. The cover was banned in the United States...but was OK to use for the U.K. release.




Meanwhile, a few other NYC-related covers that I like...

Good one, Ken. Thanks. Let's just not tell Alex! (Ha...)

Electric Lady Land was a great recording studio--was there back in the day.

Thanks for the comment, Marlie...Reminds me, I've been meaning to follow-up on The Cottage. The former home to Hendrix on W. 8th was up for rent this past spring for $7,950 per month.
