I know this has been discussed in the past given the wide availability of the Crystal Bay bootleg, but this new article at Ultimate Classic Rock has interviews with members of both local bands Jimmy got up onstage with in the spring of 1991 in Lake Tahoe. Interesting how the shows he did with Public Eye consisted of mainly Zeppelin songs when none of them were performed at Crystal Bay. Also, playing bass and doing a Yardbirds only set? That's wild.
Trying to determine what Month / week period when the Dragon was painted. Through mid April of 1967 Jimmy Page's Telecaster had mirror reflective circles on it as evidenced of the shows in Denmark with the last that I've seen by Jorgen Angels photographs on April 15th. Assuming on April 16th in Lolland Denmark the guitar was the same, sometime between April 17th and April 29th the guitars circles were removed and the custom clear perspex scratch plate was added that is newly visible at the April 30th 1967 Chaville France show. 30 April France. Did Page return to UK before May 20th France show. – NO CIRCLES NEW SCRATCH PLATE The next photo I have is from July 22nd 1967 with the Dragon Painted. Being that this is coming up on the 50th anniversary of the first photo I have of the Dragon, I'm dying to find out when it could have been painted. 6 May 1967 » Chippenham, England @ Royal Agricultural College 8 May 1967 » Cannes Film Festival Personal Appearance for Blow Up. 14 May 1967 » Stratford, London, England @ 18 May 1967 » Versailles, France @ 19 May 1967 » Elizabethville, Paris, France @ L'Hermitage 20 May 1967 Sat Jouy en Josas, France HEC Business School Note: HEC Business School end-of-year party; Billed with Joe Dassin, Jimmy James, Jean-Luc Ponty and Dexter Gordon 22 May 1967 » London, England @ BBC Radio 23 May 1967 » Bristol, England @ The Corn Exchange 26 May 1967 » London, England @ Tiles Club 27 May 1967 » Ramsgate, Kent, England @ Supreme Ballroom 29 May 1967 Monday Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England @ Cambridge City Football Club Stadium 1 June 1967 » Canterbury, Kent, England @ University of Kent 2 June 1967 Fri Canterbury, England University of Kent 5 June 1967 Mon Bath, England Pavilion 6 June 1967 » Malvern Wells, Worcs, England @ Winter Gardens 8 June 1967 » Worthing, West Sussex, England @ Worthing Assembly Hall 9 June 1967 » Margate, Kent, England @ Dreamland Ballroom 10 June 1967 » Torquay, Torbay, England @ Town Hall 16 June 1967 » Norwich, Norfolk, England @ Student Union, University of East Anglia 17 June 1967 Sat Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England Royal Air Force (RAF) Waddington - Raven Club 18 June 1967 Sun London, England Saville Theater Note: Charity pop concert presented by Brian Epstein; with Manfred Mann, The New Vaudville Band, The Zombies, The Settlers [ 11 Days Off ] June 22nd Summer Solstice My guess is that the Dragon was painted during this 11 day period considering he was in England and it was the Summer solstice, a perfect time to Consecrate the Telecaster as Page describes... "During my time with The Yardbirds, I had taken the decision to Consecrate my guitar by painting it in psychedelic color opposites and employing diffraction grating beneath the clear Perspex scratch plate."
