famous photo i can't seem to find

Hey All,

I know there are a variety of people here, including some old school still photographers so maybe you can help me out.

I am trying to locate the name of a famous photo i think from the 1960's. It is a person sitting in a chair, and they are getting blown right down into it by a loud stereo i think playing. I am pretty sure it is in black and white and a profile view. I think i can remmember the hair of the person looking like a huge wind is blowing at them too. Ohh wait they could be watching tv as well, it depends i have seen a few versions of the photo, some had a tv, some had a stereo.

It was copied and used in the 1970's and used as a 'His Master's Voice' advertisement.

Anyways, even the name and artist of this photo would be fantastic.

Thanx as always,
Zac

Kermie,

"Lars Anderson" is the art director who came up with it.

Didn't they also use it for an ad for Maxell tapes, or maybe it was Memorex?

It was done for Maxell audio tapes, late '70's I believe.
