Pete Smith recalls 'I had returned to England from The Festival of the Midnight Sun in Sweden with the band Juicy Lucy for whom I had photographed and co-designed their first two album sleeves. The group and I were all booked in to a private hotel in Sussex. Fellow guests at the hotel included Dr John, Canned Heat and The Mothers of Invention. I was able to get a number of intimate shots of some of my most favourite musicians at that time including this portrait of Frank Zappa holding the original art work for The Mothers latest album, "Weasels Ripped My Flesh''.

  • Delivery

    Delivery charges are added during the checkout process and calculated on a 'by country' basis.

    We aim to dispatch all our prints as soon as possible. If we have the requested print in stock we will arrange to post within a few days. However, in some cases we may require a photographer to sign or send us a print, it will take a little longer to be delivered. In these instances we will notify the customer of when they are likely to receive a print.

    It you have any queries regarding delivery charges or need a print delivered by a specific date, please let us know and we will do our best to sort this out.

  • VAT

    VAT (Value Added Tax) is a tax added to prints and other goods that are delivered to the UK & the rest of the European Union (EU). On our website prices that include the cost of VAT read 'Price inc VAT'

    Prints delivered to countries outside of the EU eg USA, Canada, Japan, Austrailia etc do not have VAT charged to them. So in these cases the price charged will be the one that reads 'Price ex VAT'.

    The current UK rate of VAT is 20%. Import charges may apply to orders delivered outside of the EU. Books are exempt from being charged VAT.

    If you have any queries regading VAT please email info@rockarchive.com

  • Framing

    A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.

    If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).

    If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.

    If you live outside of the UK, we are sorry we are unable to ship framed prints to you.

    For all framing enquiries please contact us at info@rockarchive.com or call us on +44 (0) 20 7267 4716
