Footnotes

  • Anna Wohlin lived with Brian Jones at Cotchford Farm and was his girlfriend during 1969. The pair originally met at The Marquee Club in the mid-sixties, Anna explains I instantly felt attracted to him. We met again in 1967 at the Speakeasy and Brian asked me back to his place, as much as I wanted to go with him I said 'No'...It was at the beginning of 1969 that things changed, I met him again at a party and he was ecstatic that he had bought his first property Cotchford Farm in Sussex which had been the home of A A Milne the author of Winnie the Pooh. Brian talked me into leaving the party and took me for dinner, I was over the moon. Over the next few weeks we saw more and more of each other, Brian was always so romantic and a perfect gentleman. He asked me to come and visit him at Cotchford Farm and before long he asked me to move in with him. Life at Cotchford was perfect and we were very happy with lots of dogs, cats and even talk of getting horses. We lived a very happy life there, it was the first property Brian felt he could call home and he was enjoying recording and listening to music as well as working on producing the music he had recorded on his trip to Morocco. I have treasured these clothes of Brian's for nearly 50 years, they have been a source of comfort when I remember him, the fun we had and how his life ended too soon.

    In her letter accompanying this lot Anna recalls that Brian loved his Ossie Clark jacket. She writes ...Brian was really proud of the fact Ossie usually made clothes for Women but had been thrilled to make something for Brian...it was definitely one of his favorite items of clothing.
