“THEY ASK NO QUARTER”

 THE CARL DUNN LED ZEPPELIN ARCHIVE 1969-1975
NEW LED ZEPPELIN PHOTOGRAPHIC BOOK BASED ON UNSEEN PHOTOS TO BE PUBLISHED IN NOVEMBER 2021

Legendary Rock photographer Carl Dunn opens his Led Zeppelin archive.

The new photographic book details 15 Led Zeppelin shows ranging from the Texas Pop Festival in 1969, over the rise of Led Zeppelin on their March - May 1970 tour of the US south, to 5 shows from the epic 1973 tour including the double date at the Chicago Stadium in July 1973, and finally at three consecutive sold out shows in Texas in early March 1975.

Moreover, Carl was fortunate to be invited to the “Cabana Motor Motel” in Dallas in 1970 to shoot the band freely while they were relaxing at the pool. He also joined Jimmy Page and Peter Grant to Austin, where Jimmy played with Bad Company in September 1974.

Of 1300 live and off stage images, we have chosen 175 of the best of these and present them with a narrative by the photographer who will tell interesting tales of shooting the mighty Led Zeppelin, as he watched them rise to become the biggest rock act of the 1970´s. Noted Led Zeppelin expert and writer Marc Roberty will offer background and tour info.

Archivist Dave Brolan will offer his views on the photographs through an introduction, and there will be comments by fellow rock photographer Ross Halfin.

Carl Dunn´s Led Zeppelin shots have so far been used in the official Led Zeppelin book from 2019 and have been used for several of the Led Zeppelins official box re-releases of their albums, as well as in countless articles and magazines. Carl has photographed all major rock act that came through Texas, from Jimi Hendrix and Cream in 1968, to Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, the Who and many more throughout the1970´s.

Just got it in the mail today. It is beautiful. Definitely a different perspective from behind the lens as Carl wasn’t granted as much access as newspaper/magazine photogs. The pictures are almost from a fan’s perspective. Pretty cool. Some great shots from when Jimmy joined Bad Company on stage in 74.
