Fillmore East 1969 - Please Clarify!!!
Filmore East 1969 - Please Clarify!!!:: Posted by pcontos on August 21, 2007 DGM, 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 There’s 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. “Shows 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?!” Clearly if you already have KCCC25 and don’t 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 weren’t 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 can’t 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 thanks Paul Contos
