A Collection of American Legends.

What a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend, than by remembering some American music legends. Sony records is selling a large collection of photos from the Columbia archives. A lot of these photos have never been released before, so they are a real treasure. With as much as I love music, and photography; these photographs really excite me!
I'm especially crazy about the Johnny Cash photos. My dad used to always wear his hear just like this (up until he started losing his hair). I wish this style would come back again.
A quintessential Miles Davis pose.

Thelonious Monk in 1963

Billie Holiday in 1957.
The first album I bought on "CD" was a collection of her biggest hits.
Bob Dylan in 1963.

I love these shots. Some of my favorite artists. I feel this style of photography is missing from todays artists. Everything seems so natural.

Joslyn: I thought you would like it:)

Justin: I totally agree. These photos really seem to capture the subjects' souls.
