Una foto de Joseph Szabo: Priscilla (1969)

Priscilla, Jones Beach, New York City, 1969 by Joseph Szabo

"(...) We just wanna know who that chick is on the cover of Green Mind, Dinosaur Jr.’s seminal 1991 slacker soundtrack. We got photographer Joseph Szabo on the phone to tell us the story behind ‘Priscilla,’ the girl in that unforgettable pic.

Can you tell us more about the young girl in the photo?

Priscilla was one of those gifts that was given to me one of the first times I went to Jones Beach. I don’t know if you know Jones Beach in New York, but it’s a really big beach that extends for miles along the south shore. Somebody said,”If you like photographing people, go to Jones Beach.” So I went there with my camera, and on this particular day when I stepped on the beach, there she was, no more than ten feet away. I knew I had to get the camera and just shoot as quickly as possible. I actually only got two shots off, and I went to double check I had the right aperture and shutter speed for the beach, and when I looked up she was gone, totally gone. No place on the beach, no place on the boardwalk. She was really a mystery girl."

Amon Düül II - Fly United

Aparte de "Fly United", hay ocho más en el blog; la mayor parte de este álbum, Vive la Trance (1973). Un disco fabuloso. ¡Qué tiempos! Amon Düül II, alemanes cantando en inglés.

¡Al agua!
