Sony Music acquired Columbia Records in 1988, but it wasn't until last year that they realized they owned a gold mine in photographic archives from Columbia recording sessions from the 1950s through the 1970s. Sony started a new company, Icon Collectibles, to sell art quality reproductions of these photos online. Prices run from $300 to $1700. Images include Miles Davis during the 1959 Kind of Blue sessions, Bob Dylan from 1963, Billie Holiday from Lady in Satin in 1957, and Sly Stone from 1973.
There are several planned shows of these prints at Morrison Hotel Gallery.
