Jimi Hendrix puppet cover!

Via RecordMecca: A mint copy of Track Records' release of Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsies album, featuring the withdrawn "puppet" cover art. Creepy but cool!

The earliest copies of Band of Gypsys featured this cover, picturing puppets of Hendrix, Brian Jones, Bob Dylan and English DJ John Peel.  Reportedly Peel complained and the cover was withdrawn and replaced with a live photo of Hendrix.

  1. I still have an old Beatle puppet, I don't know which one it is suppose to be. One of the strings broke, and I'd like to get it restrung, but by whom? Maybe one day I can find out.
