King Curtis

Thanks to the Bootlegzone for posting these John photos!   Very awesome!


  1. those pictures were originally post on Ebony Magazine

  2. Never seen these pictures before, thanks for hosting them! King Curtis was murdered shortly after this. R.I.P.

    Another one of the greats lost in a moment of madness...

  3. Holy smokes, I can't believe I'm seeing these pictures. This was just mere weeks before King Curtis was killed. Fantastic. Look how at ease they are together, unbelievable.

    In fact, all around a fantastic bunch of pics today, Sara! The plane ride to NYC pics, the 1978 Ringo/Paul pic and this, fantastic. An embarrassment of riches!!-mg

  4. great pictures!
    The first picture is totally new to me- and I really like it !
    John is probably playing It's So Hard on acoustic guitar to "teach" the song to King Curtis (it's track 4 on CD 2 of Imagine...More Session Tapes)

    the second picture was in the booklet of this Vigotone release... (they also "colored" this photo for the back)

  5. what I'm wondering is if there's somewhere some photos of the "flux fiddlers" (after all "these" were not "invisible strings" :-) recording the strings arrangement for "Imagine" LP during the overdubs sessions in New York.
    from what I read in a Lennon interview, these were some philarmonic guys and girls, well he believe "so..."

  6. My brother suggested I might like this blog. He was entirely right.
    This post actually made my day. You cann't imagine just how much time I
    had spent for this info! Thanks!
