    09/29/1971 Osaka - Stairway To Heaven - EVSD SBD Single

    +1 And where is "celebration day"? Great version and I was waiting just for these 2 songs and the magnificent organ solo. WTF EV?

    PROOF THAT ANOTHER 1977 PRO-SHOT VIDEO EXISTS

    NO. I listened to it carefully and I didn't find any cuts, covered or not. (Except bron yr aur stomp.) And it sounds waaay different, compared to the other tapes. Prove your claim if you want.

    Pontiac Silverdome Footage

    It was filmed and projected on the giant screen. We don't know if it was recorded. At least, 24 minutes of 8mm footage exist.

    PROOF THAT ANOTHER 1977 PRO-SHOT VIDEO EXISTS

    I have noticed this in all '77 amateur films. Only the green/yellow beams behind Jimmys amps are captured. The blue pyramid is invisible. Same thing with the Seattle video. The pyramid is captured only during the final spin. Does anybody know why?

    Your explanation sounds good to me. And if there is a little chance for the video to exist, time will tell.

    For the Pontiac show, download the 2nd gen recording from black beauty. For Birmingham, 3 separate recordings exist. 2 of them sound like shit, while the 3rd is very good. Download the "out of the way" version from black beauty.

    PROOF THAT ANOTHER 1977 PRO-SHOT VIDEO EXISTS

    Yes. No cameras and camera men were on stage. No video screens were projecting. But there was a room on an upper level with a cctv system (I think these rooms are called "luxury boxes"). Many other concerts were filmed from this room, with no need of onstage camera men. 1970's betamax videos were small enough (but very expensive) so I can imagine someone taping the show from the upper floor. Of course, this is only a speculation.
  8. First of all: I don't want to start any rumors or debates. I just want to share my observations with you and discuss about them. A year ago, I was searching the web to find photos of the 1977 laser pyramid. I honestly don't remember exactly the keywords I used, but I came across a website and I saw the photo I am going to post below. One guy claimed that this photo is a fragment of the 5/21/1977 video. I quickly took a screenshot with my phone. I recently tried to find again that website, but no matter the keywords I used, I couldn't find it again. Because I am a vintage electronics fan, familiar with videotapes, it seems to me that the "photo" is really a snippet of a video. Look at the line at centre, its the classic line of a videotape that goes fast forward. Also, note the tiny line at the bottom of the picture. The Seattle video has the same line, although bigger. And finally, an other thing I noticed: All the 1977 soundboard recordings have cuts every 45-47 minutes. This is because the showco workers used 90 minute cassettes (approximately 45 minutes each side.) The only 1977 soundboards that don't have 45 minute cuts are Houston and Seattle. Houston has only one cut during Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp and Seattle has two cuts: One cut during No Quarter and a tiny cut during the guitar solo. Also, the Houston soundboard sounds different, compared to the other '77 board tapes. The difference with the Seattle tape is that Houston recording is stereophonic, while Seattle recording is monaural. My conclusion is that the 5/21/77 soundboard recording is actually a video soundtrack! What do you people think? Edit: I know that no cameras were on stage. The show was possibly videotaped from an upper room with a single camera cctv system.

    You are very rude. And your comment about the quality of the shows and the releases is the stupidest thing I have ever heard.

    If he has no multitracks, he is never going to release a raw soundboard. Unless he decides do make a matrix (audience + sbd recording).

    Its been a long time since I read it on this forum. But I remember clearly reading that Jimmy was "unable to locate" multitracks from 1977. Oh and look at all the photos from '77. NO double microphones on the kick drum, Jimmy's amps and John Paul Jone's amps. Perhaps another member will confirm this.

    1. 1977 is Bonham's peak 2. Knebworth shows are shit, compared to LA 77 (with the exception of a few songs) 3. Sometimes Jimmy played bad, and sometimes BRILLIANT 4. The 1977 LA shows alone are better than all the 75 shows and some of the band's best concerts ever (together with 6-25-72, 6-27-72 and Europe 1973) 5. When I listen to most of the 1973 shows I always think how shitty Plant's voice is (Page is great though) 6. What exactly do you mean by "awful recordings"? Millard's recordings are bad to your ears? 4-28-77 recording sounds bad to you? 7. Someone who dislikes the 1977 LA shows (not to mention MSG, Pontiac and Birmingham) is either deaf or mentally ill.

    No. Not at all. The only reason for not releasing anything from 77 is because NO MULTITRACKS FROM 1977 EXIST. Jimmy has said it.
