In the early 1970's I shot a Neil Diamond show in Bristol, from which I provided a few shots to MCA for inside a European record sleeve. This was not one of those used, but I suddenly realized recently that this one somehow turned up, slightly edited, as the cover of The Jazz Singer, the movie poster and promotion. I have no idea if or who it was licensed from, but it certainly was not from me or even credited to me. There has to be a lesson there somewhere. It certainly is the most prestigious album one of my photos appeared on. The image at the right is from an original print from the time of the show, several years before the movie.
