Live at Carnegie Hall, October 17th 1969

Given the amount of attention this gig is getting on another thread, I thought it deserved one of its own, seemingly one of their great early gigs but so little evidence of it exists. Is this picture from this actual show, was anyone on the forum at the gig & does anyone have anything else to contribute?

On Moby Dick at the Carnegie Hall gig:- "When it came to his full-scale workout, Bonham made good on his promise to be in top form. He summoned a demonic drum solo and flew around the kit with a speed and brute strength that was astounding. I saw Bonham play many more solos over the years but never with quite the same sustained attack."

Chris Welch.

You're right. This gig does deserve its own thread. Given its prestige its an anomaly with such little evidence. The only documents from this gig are two photos ( the one above being one) and I believe I've seen a poster. I'll look for the other photo and post it here when I find it.

There simply HAS to be something more somewhere...a fan's account, photos, and hopefully a recording of some type. Or at least Eddie Kramer's denial that it wasn't recorded.

Is the Chris Welch interview available in print form anywhere? Does he have audio notes from the interview?

Some fan comments, reviews, ads, ticket, programme etc on the Timeline:

I should have more press if you'd like me to dig them up too.

I read Chris Welch's account in Keith Shadwick's book 1968-80  The Story Of A Band And Their Music

Holy Shit!!! Is that Jimmy actually reaching out to the audience? I just never imagined he did stuff like that. I guess in those days it was possible because the distance between him and audience was not tremendous.

That is a phenomenal pic.  My God, I wish we had a recording of Moby Dick from this show.  DAMNIT, why wasn't this professionally recorded!!!??????

Its odd that there are only two pictures from this show. Obviously, both photos above were taken by someone with access to the band. I would assume that photographer took more photos than the two we see here. I would also assume that fans brought their own cameras, of course.

Sam-Is it possible to simply ask Eddie Kramer if he was there to record the show?

I would think he would have just attended the gig. Over all these years there would have been some mention of  him recording for that show.

It does seem odd that there are so few photographic documents. I mean it's not every day you play Carnegie Hall.

Good point. Its entirely possibly that he simply attended the show as an observer. And you're right; We probably would have heard at least a shadow of a rumor by now.

Its just a bit disappointing that they performed at this prestigious venue and there are very little documents available.
