CLICK>>>> CHAD ALLAN TRIBUTE <<<<CLICK
I take no credit for the Chad Allan cover as far as the concept; that was his business manager, Susan Hoyes idea, not mine.
It's an interesting story how I came to shoot it.
I worked with a guy at Eatons called Hans Sipma, who did some photography for Gar Gillies, (& was also roadie for the Mongrels). He originally did a shot for the cover, then went away on vacation.
In his abscence, Susan Hoyes phoned Eatons studio asking for Hans & I answered the phone.
She wanted the shot re-done with the Chad Allen doll in an over-stuffed chair.
When I explained he was away for 2 weeks, she said she needed it done ASAP to meet her deadline., naturally, I volunteered my services! So on my lunch hour, I rushed over to the Goodwill Store, camera in hand.
The b/w photo on the side table was actually a portrait that Hans had done.
He has a 'thankyou' credit on the back of the LP sleeve.
