In June of 1964 THE ROLLING STONES made their first sojourn to the famous Chess Records studios at 2120 South Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois for their first of three recording sessions there; June 10-11, 1964; November 10, 1964; May 10, 1965.
This extraordinary and historic collection of photographs are being exhibited in their entirety for the first time anywhere at Willie DIxon’s Blues Heaven Foundation, which occupies the hallowed ground that once housed Chess Records. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of prints and the poster for the exhibit will go to the Foundation to support their efforts to continue the restoration of the building and studio to a working recording facility.
This limited run poster was printed by one of the few remaining letterpress poster printers in the world. We will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the poster to Will Dixon’s Blues Heaven Foundation (a not-for-profit organization that resides at 2120 South Michigan Avenue in Chicago – the actual building that originally housed Chess Records Studios until it closed in 1975 – to support their efforts to restore the building to a working studio again.
