Never seen.

I'm guessing this is the Lady in Satin session, which took place 51 years ago this week. Hinton played bass on the record.

A little over a year later and she'd be gone.

She only could sing with lots of gin then. The recording sessions started not before 2 o'clock in the morning. This is a very depressing picture. Poor Lady, but great Lady.

She would have been about 44 when this was taken.

But she looks closer to 60.
