On the far right holding a trophy of some description. Is that Clapton? The hair doesn't seem ridiculously permed enough to be Noel Redding...

Anyone know the date when they shot this photo? There was a book published a few years ago called Strange Brew which had a more or less day-to-day chronology of where Clapton was between 1965 and 70.

July 18 1967, according to globalia.net

We're Only In It For The Money Cover Photo Session

July 18, 1967
NYC, NY

Filmed by Ed Seeman and Calvin Schenkel
Appears on:

* Uncle Meat
* Frank Zappa--20 Jahre Extravaganza (DoRo, 1989)
* The Late Show (BBC 1993)
* Ein Leben als Extravaganza (DoRo, 1993)
* Frank Zappa: The Present-Day Composer Refuses To Die

From "Mr Satire & Mr Phenomenon" by Kees de Lange (UniVibes #27, December 1997)

Frank Zappa himself attended the Jimi Hendrix Experience recording session at the Mayfair Recording Studio on 701 Seventh Avenue, New York, on 18 July 1967. Although his presence is unconfirmed, Zappa may very well be one of the many people who made up "the Milky Way Express" for "The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice" [S020], contributing an assortment of voices, whistles, cheers, et cetera.

JHE roadie Neville Chesters remembered the day well . . . "Quite a few people dropped in on that session. It was a really shitty studio, it was about six or eight floors up . . . Midtown New York, a pretty dreadful place. It was just like offices and they converted it into a studio, most odd. I remember a photo session came out of that. It was the same day or later in the day of that session" (UniVibes #18, May 1995, p. 18).

Neville Chesters was referring to the photo session on 18 July that yielded the inside cover of We're Only In It For The Money--the Sergeant Pepper parody. Fortunately, this happening was also captured on 8mm film--a glimpse of Jimi during the photo call by Jerry Schatzberg can be seen in the TV documentary on Frank Zappa, entitled Biography (released in 1994--for more details refer to Michael Fairchild's feature 'Live Boa & Pigtails,' published in UniVibes #18, May 1995, p. 32).

The Strange Brew book states that Cream took a break between July 16-31, 1967 and that Clapton went to NYC. So yes, that indicates he could have been at this photo session.

FWIW, the book suggests that Clapton's spoken contribution to WOIIFTM was recorded "possibly October 9-10 1967." (It also mentions that John Mayall taped Zappa's gig in Copenhagen on Oct 1 1967.)

And..."where they had to use John Mayall´s gear because their own failed to arrive"...according to Neil Slaven´s Electric Don Quixote.

"our Danish debut as a 'semi-acoustic' combo, with just a few amps borrowed from John Mayall" according to the YCDTOSA 5 booklet.

Great stuff, cheers. So, assuming it is him, I wonder why he was removed from the collage...

Although that question is probably secondary to "Where the hell did they find a Christmas tree in the middle of July?"

Cor, it's like the 'Paul Is Dead' clues. The one on the left is definitely Billy Shears.
