The Jimi Hendrix Album ‘Electric Ladyland’ is 50 years old this year and one of it’s controversial and banned covers back then featured a bevvy of naked beauties posing on a black background. Several years ago I got asked if I could identify any of the models and back then my knowledge was lacking, but now I’ve been asked again and on revisiting the cover I realize that I can now name several of the models and recognize several more.
Back then the cover photographer, David Montgomery, said he found the girls in The Speakeasy nightclub in London, which may be true. But I know those I’ve identified were also well known glamour models appearing in many of the magazines back then and worked for the likes of Harrison Marks and Russell Gay. I’ve numbered the models I can now identify and the list is below, plus a few I recognize and have images of but have no name.
The two blondes front left also look familiar, but can’t put a name to the lovely faces. Anyone recognize any other models?
One of the models named Reine Sutcliffe was interviewed in Melody Maker in 1968. “It makes us look like a load of old tarts. It’s rotten. Everyone looked great, but the picture made us look old and tired. We were trying to look too sexy, but it didn’t work out.”
Thanks to Les for contacting me and asking to look at it again 🙂
Another original shot of Nicole Yerner by Harrison Marks. Nicole appeared in a couple of GHM’s adult movies including ‘Nicole’ and his Maximus Film release ‘Aphrodesia Part 2’, but this shot of her seems to be a still from the first film with her posing in black stocking and suspenders in the bedroom. A hand placed strategically to cover her modesty, but let’s face it she has too much down below on show for one hand to cover and it hardly hides a thing!
A very natural view of Nicole Yerner by Harrison Marks as she poses outdoors at Ewhurst Manor from the same set as this shot. And you can’t say you don’t see the full on natural side of Nicole in this shot, beautiful view 🙂
A big thank you to Ray for sending this shot of Nicole over
A very sunny and natural view of Nicole Yerner by Harrison Marks. Seventies model Nicole appeared in a couple of GHM’s adult movies including ‘Nicole’ and his Maximus Film release ‘Aphrodesia Part 2’, but these are the first original negative scans I have of her. Up until now I was very light on good images of Nicole, but thanks to member and fellow Harrison Marks fan Ray I now have a set of 9 original shots of her by Harrison Marks, 3 on the bench above, 3 in the bedroom and 3 in the bath! All of which show off Nicoles fabulous body in full uncensored glory. More to come soon, but I’m sure that’s also a wig she’s wearing?
A big thank you to Ray for sending this and his other GHM shots over so I can share them here. Keep a look out for a link to him on eBay soon, as he’s going to be selling off several lots of his Harrison Marks negative collection.
Y is for Nicole Yerner, another model that posed for Harrison Marks but unfortunately I have no actual shots of her by GHM, but she did appear in two adult home movies including ‘Nicole’ and his Maximus Films release ‘Aphrodesia Part 2’. These two shots of Nicole come from a different publication, similar to Range or SBS, but I couldn’t identify this particular title.
