Filmore East 1969 - Please Clarify!!!
:: Posted by pcontos on August 21, 2007
This was the message on the site when this show went live in Feb 2006. I am very confused as to which show is which, 21 or 22. Can someone claify?
KC69 "Played really well, went down OK"
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Feb 3, 2006
Thereís a new old show available today as KC69 makes their DGMLive debut.
What we have here is an about as complete as it gets audience recording of the first night of KC69s stint at the Fillmore East and here, as David Singelton explains, is how it came to be.
ďShows from 1969 bring out the treasure hunter in me. This show - now available with everything but the final improv for the very first time - came quite by chance. Twice! The first time, Michael Giles mentioned that he had "the same bootleg of Fillmore East as everyone else" - and produced what is still the only copy I have ever heard. His tape had three complete songs but was missing all but the closing bars of The Court of the Crimson King. The second time, some ten years later, Tony Calabro wrote to say that the liner notes from Epitaph were wrong, as the performance that we had dated as 22nd November was actually one of the two performances from the 21st. In passing, he mentioned that he knew this as he had himself recorded the opening songs, until his machine jammed. By putting the two tapes together, we now have that rare treasure - a virtually complete and audible show from 1969. Any other undiscovered tapes in those closets?!Ē
Clearly if you already have KCCC25 and donít feel the need to have a complete version of Court then you can happily save your heard-earned moolah for lots of other goodies.
It says that there were two performances on the 21st? Does that mean there werenít any on the 22nd as the CC #25 indicates?
Also, Epitaph boxset has listed the recording on there from the 21st? This one matches the first show on CC #25 which also says the 21st.
The DGM Live download says its the 21st as well but this one matches the version on CC #25 listed as the 22nd. Is this where the mistake is? Is this actually a second show from the 21st? Can sombody Clarify?
Also, on the new download, where does the seem of the two recordings occur? I canít tell at all so Alex did a great job. Does it occur during the flute solo on Crimson King where Michael Giles tape starts? Or does it occur during Epitaph where the bootleg copy ends?
Any help would be appreciated

Yes, this is actually from the second night (22nd), according to KCCC25. So anyone thinking they already have this on Epitaph - they havenít! While in theory, I suppose that either tape could come from either night, the proof is Read more

I think that the credit of the date of this sound source is wrong.
I think that performance content is different how even if I listen.
November 22, 1969 is correct date, I Read more

This is a great show and the sound quality is not actually too bad at all - anyone who is used to hearing bootleg recordings would probably rate this as a very good audience recording (even though itís actually mainly Read more

Of course, a show from that era if a great find. Itís a little overpriced to pay $9.95 for only 37 minutes, compared to $12.95 for full two hour sets on some other Read more
