This mesmerizing photograph of Mick Jagger and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, was taken backstage at the filming of the T.A.M.I. show. The T.A.M.I. show was the first great rock and roll concert film, that starred The Rolling Stones, James Brown, The Supremes, The Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Marvin Gaye and many others.

During the rehearsal day the producers decided they wanted The Stones to close the show and film rather than the planned ending with James Brown. James was very upset and stormed around backstage reportedly. The Stones were intimidated and reluctant to follow James until Marvin Gaye told them to just go out there and go do their thing. They did, were great! The rest is history. James congratulated them as they left the stage and they remained friends through out the rest of James' career.

Print Type: Silver Gelatin Print
The black and white images from the Bob Bonis Archive are custom silver gelatin prints, printed to order by the master printers at Duggal in New York. They are printed on double weight archival fibre paper and then selenium toned (an archival toning process) to increase the tonal range and ensure longevity. The term silver gelatin print is derived from the gelatin emulsion in the photographic paper, which contains light-sensitive silver salts that react to light exposure.
