Purple Haze

I took this photo in July of 1968 at the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, Louisiana. Jimi Hendrix's first album, Are You Experienced, had just been released in the US, and I was a dedicated fan.  Hard to believe this concert even got booked - and that my parents let me go. [NOTE: I took the picture with an old Kodak Instamatic camera, and judging from the angle and the level of detail, it looks like I was standing right in front of the stage. I remember the concert was fantastic. And real loud.]

Very, very cool! Did you take any other photos from this show? Would you be interested in the possibility of publishing?

This was the only photo that I was able to dig up. I'm sure I took more, but who knows where they are. Glad you like the image.
