I have Ethan Russell's 1985 book "Dear Mr. Fantasy," which has photos and text of all the bands he knew and photographed. Not that many Stones photos but it has this one. Imagine my surprise when, looking for the taper, I actually saw him!Quote
The photgraph above the "Bad Scene" title shows the taper source of the Altamont audience recording. See the guy on the right at the stage in the brown leather jacket? The taper is two heads behind (above) him. He's also wearing glasses. I applaud his tenacity in getting that recording. When the scuffle breaks out during SFTD he's in the thick of it. You can also hear THAT on his recording. At various times during the GS movie you can see his recorder.
Ethan will appear & show his work in SF on March 1...seems everyone who took photos or created artwork for lp covers in the good old days are cashing in on their work...I think it is great to meet these guys and see their work displayed properly...always brings back great memories...but I have found that in the past 10 years or so, the prices have gone thru the roof...I think you can ask whatever you want for an 'original' painting...but some of these 'limited' edition books & prints are quite pricey considering how many are offered for sale...a 'limited edition' of 100 copies might be a great investment at any price...but editions of 1000-3000 seems to be a big gamble if you're hoping to own a rare item that will increase in value over the next 20 years...of course if $$ is no object, this post is not for you...just thinking out loud here.....peter
