January 26th is the date for legendary rock photographer Jini Dellaccio's closing event & print sale here at Easy Street! Until then we will be spotlighting photos included in the sale and the stories behind them every weekday. Today we present The Fabulous Wailers!
The Story: Jini Dellaccio took this photo of the Fabulous Wailers coming out of the northwest woods wearing their custom-made two-tone suits in the summer of 1965. Jini loved the playful juxtaposition of this image. The band would perform only once wearing the two-tone suits. The suits were stolen from their dressing room after they played a 'Battle of the Bands' show in Portland Oregon.
