Hair today - gone tomorrow

'Ah yes - from the time when Previn had his hair ironed daily. In return, I offer you the Tchaikovsky 1st played by Richter while escaping from a bag, 3 padlocks, and a pair of handcuffs' - said Scott on Musicians willing to muck around for publicity.
Well Scott, I can go one better. Above, from the Overgrown Path archive, is André Previn photographed from the time before he had his hair ironed daily. The cover design for that vinyl LP on the Contemporary label was by Bob Guidi's Tri-Arts design studio and the photographer was that great jazz snapper William Claxton. More hair from forty years ago here.
