The Boston Globe recently profiled Somerville photographer Charlie Daniels and his quest to develop 3,000 rolls of film.
Daniels spent the late ’60s and early ’70s as the stage announcer at The Boston Tea Party. Known then as “Master Blaster,” the smooth-talking emcee used his position to get close to the bands that played the club. Now he has 50 years of photographs of the likes of the Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, and Jimi Hendrix, all before they broke big.
The Globe piece outlines the fundraising efforts that have mobilized to help Daniels, 79, get as many rolls of film developed as possible. So far, early results have yielded some gems, which the Globe shared on their Twitter feed and I’ve shared below.
