Today Is Record Store Day, Check Out The Official Poster of Jimi Hendrix

RSDvector_2013

A limited-edition poster of Jimi Hendrix is one of the highlights of Record Store Day 2013.

“It’s entirely appropriate that an image of Jimi Hendrix is on the official Record Store Day poster,” said Janie Hendrix, his sister. “He was an avid music fan and record collector himself and, of course, his recordings are among the most enduring and cherished of all time. Jimi’s musical legacy and influence grow with every passing year so, in a sense, he makes Record Store Day last much, much longer than 24 hours.”

Only 5,000 copies of the poster will be made. The image is a 24”  x 36” poster printed on heavy paper and will be free to Hendrix fans at fully participating record stores in the United States. Fans should contact their local stores the week before Record Store Day, which falls on April 20th this year, for details.

Beyond this limited-edition poster, Record Store Day 2013 will excite Jimi Hendrix fans and collectors. Experience Hendrix will issue a limited-edition, individually numbered 7-inch vinyl single featuring the original mono mixes of “Hey Joe” and “Stone Free,” which have been unavailable since their original 1966 release.

HERE is a list of the special releases that will be available today.

Record Store Day began six years ago as an event to support the independent record community worldwide; it occurs on the third Saturday of April.
