LED ZEPPELIN, JIMI HENDRIX Producer's Photo Exhibit Offers Rare Look At Rock Icons

This is a really cool selection of photos from the master:

As a producer and engineer for the past 40 years, Eddie Kramer has overseen some of the most significant albums of all time. Among them: JIMI HENDRIX's groundbreaking "Are You Experienced?" (in fact, all of his studio albums); five LED ZEPPELIN albums; the ROLLING STONES' "Beggars Banquet"; and works by SANTANA, SMALL FACES, DAVID BOWIE, and THE BEATLES. That Kramer, 63, helped shape the course of rock music comes as no surprise to anybody who grew up gazing at gatefold LP credits while "Whole Lotta Love" or "Voodoo Chile" blasted from the speakers. That he took pictures while he was at it — more than a thousand of them — is a more recent revelation.

"From the Other Side of the Glass" is a new traveling exhibition that features a selection of Kramer's intimate, little-seen photographs of three of rock's best known subjects — HENDRIX, ZEPPELIN, and the STONES — at work and at play. Drawn from roughly 450 images at his Kramer Archives website (, the exhibit opens at the Paradise Lounge on Tuesday.

"I'd keep the camera next to me," says Kramer on the phone from Los Angeles. ''It was my constant companion, and it was always loaded and ready to go. Sometimes I would be working the board and the artist would be sitting behind me on the couch, and I'd wheel around in my chair and just snap away and keep working with the other hand."

Your blog is amazing!!! Thank you for bringing the Kramer archives to my attention. Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and a lot of others greatly influenced me, so you should definitely check out my blog ( I'm the vocalist/rhythm guitarist for my band, and I'm also the songwriter, so stop by and tell me what you think of the songs (or just stop by to talk about rock icons).
