Who’s Who on Electric Ladyland Cover (1968)

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.

1. Jenny Lane
2. Maria Frost
3. Nicole Yerner
4. Cindy Neal
5. Rena Brown (Reine Sutcliffe?)
6. Maya Zell
7. Ann Day?
8. Nichola Austine
9. Unknown but Familiar (Worked with GHM)  
10. Samantha Bond 
11. Helga Berk

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 🙂

Cindy Neal – Subtle Stubble! (Original)

Cindy Neal by Harrison Marks from a scan of an original uncensored negative. A great shot showing off Cindy’s figure and fading tan lines, along with a very fine growth, stubbly look to her pussy. Obviously growing it back after a summer of sun 🙂

Cindy Neal – Dimples and A Bow! (Original)

A rear view of Cindy Neal looking very delicious on the cottage kitchen set in stockings and suspenders. Several shots of Cindy from this set appeared in Kamera No.88 (1968), but this shot doesn’t seem to be one of them. A rather nice rear shot of Cindy and that dimpled bottom highlighted by the black suspenders belt, but the big polka dot bow seems a little over the top!

Cindy Kneels!

Cindy Neal kneeling on an old pouffe as she poses for Harrison Marks on the Arabian set. Cindy has a very healthy look to her with those little white tan lines, that highlight those round pert tits and the very tidy little pussy on show, that would have needed little retouching for publication 🙂 Thanks as always to Kevin for the scan of this original GHM negative featuring Cindy.

Cindy Neal – All Wrapped Up with a Bow! (1968)

Cindy Neal looking truly scrumptious in the kitchen in stockings, suspenders, low cut bra and apron covering the best bits, from Kamera No.88 P4 (1968). Add in the big bow on her head and the fact she’s got a box of Australian sultana’s on the table, she obviously cooking up something and looking delicious in the kitchen!
