There are few survivors from this period of work from 1970 ~ 72; what I could find is represented here. The earliest dated one is Jimi (in front of the amp) from ’71, but they are all from the same basic time and each of us had a hand in each one.

In this shot we see Tanya from behind, I’m printing a silk screen of Jimi (below) and Dale’s leg is in the far right. I’m sitting at a huge equipment rack, back before “audio racks” were made for consumer use. There was a drawer that pulled out that is being used as a table top for the screen. Above it is a multi-track recorder, an easel to the side and crap everywhere.
This next shot must’ve been taken about the same time. Here we find a different use for the pit; now it’s a recording studio. Paul Shaffer is playing on Richie Strickland's composition "I've Seen the Light" while the Teac 3340 documents the day. There are a couple overhead mics (one with a wind screen for no reason), one in front of Paul and Richie is plugged in.
