Jimi Hendrix and Wilson Pickett, Cornell Dupree behind Wilson, Prelude Club, Atlantic Records release party, Harlem, New York, May 5, 1966. Photographed by Michael Randolph.  Before Jimi was famous, but only 4 years before his death. Amazing that he was able to leave such a lasting legacy in such a short period of time.
