You might want to include the city of the performance as well to be more complete, as some will not know and are novices, but big fans. Just a suggestion.

This is the Schaeffer music festival in Central Park, New York. I thought that on this forum somewhere it was documented that film does exist and that the sound was being synched to the footage. The audio superbly released in " The Summer Of Love" by Beelzebub Records is a classic clocking in at over an hour.

Bill Shelley himself said it was 40 mins of film, and what do you mean by "The audio superbly released in " The Summer Of Love" by Beelzebub Records is a classic clocking in at over an hour." Do you mean some of the audio from this film was released?

There are 2 boots from this show. One as I've mentioned and Empress Valleys "Live In Central Park" both excellent and rated as the best show from this era.

It'll be interesting to see when and if Shelley releases the Central Park video.I heard he approached the band to sell it to them but don't know how far he got.

As an aside,I long heard rumors that the LA 70 show was filmed and was viewed by a Guy in Las Vegas.

Additionally,I've always wondered about that 1970

Documentary proposed by the band and if anything ever materialized

In the same year,one wonders if there is more from Chris Welch and from the D&C snippet from Iceland seen on DVD.

From RO:

May 4th Braves Stadium, Atlanta *X

Video:

April 17, 1970 - Memphis, TN (about 10 minutes, silent)

Page in studio '74 footage (playing strat - clips were shown during

"Travelling Riverside Blues" video)

The Bill Graham 8mm Films - Bill Graham's Vault had almost 5,000 concert

recordings of many artists and groups, including Led Zeppelin. Those

recordings were digitally copied and many of them wouldn't see the light of

day.

1. The Led Zeppelin II Sessions - video

In-studio film footage of the band laying down one of the greatest rock

albums of all time.

There's a 40 second clip of the II footage floating around as MPEG2

(compressed to hell). It's the same quality as the Hendrix in Laurel Canyon

(TTG Studios) footage.

4. NYC 69-Recently unearthed video.

6/79-REHEARSALS FOR KNEBWORTH

VIDEO OF REHEARSALS WITH BONZO DEMONSTRATING HOW TO FOLD A SHIRT

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following 2 entries aken from another website. These would be a holy

grail if they exist.

1> Sept 4 70 Video

Quote

And fredg61, video does exist. I started collecting in 1986. This show was

one of my 1st ones I ever got on audio. The guy I got this show from lived

in Vegas. I tried getting a copy of his video but to no avail. He told me

I can go over and watch it, which I did, but he promised "a friend" he'd

never release it. Looks like he stuck to his promise so far. But it

exists. In fact, it is taken from around the same area in the audience as

the audio is because when John Paul Jones says, "Straight from the deli," a

particular girl laughs, and she is also heard on the video. Wish I can

remember the sequence of the songs from the vid tho.

Quote

Thanks for the setlist info...I can't remember from the video as it was in

1986-1987. I do remember Immigrant Song--POWERFUL!

The guy went by "Guido" lol. I think I spelled that right. He must have

had connections because he had some great stuff I haven't seen since, and

I'm a knowledgeable collector. He has/had soundboards that would make us

cream and I know he had at least 2 audios prior to Gonzaga '68. A few

"boards" he had were 2 from Australia and Japan '72. Everybody would love

those. The Vancouver 1975 board that recently surfaced was from him

probably. He also had an "A" audience of Bath. Numerous others.

The video was almost complete, with the exception of MD. There were

probably around 10 or so cuts of around 20 seconds each, maybe longer,

probably tape replacing?? Not sure. The sound was a step below this

audio probably. I gotta listen to this 1st. The video quality was like

that of the Philly 1975 clips that are going around, which by the way, is

not the whole concert. The Philly '75 film is being released by bits &

pieces. I'd like to know by who as about 75% of that concert actually

exists on film. I think these people just like to toy with us and it's

pissing me off, lol.

Not sure of the "friend" but living in Vegas at the time, I made friends

with him because I was a wide-eyed teen who worked at his grocery store and

he and his wife took a liking to me. But his collection, or part of, may

have been to the Twisted Sister incident when they recorded at Pages house

in the early 80's for Stay Hungry I think it was as he referred to it a

couple of times.

I'm positive more things will surface soon. We're gonna enter the

soundboard revolution era soon.

I'll track him down tho (hopefully) now that I'm collecting again. And when

I get something, be shakin' not, you can be sure I'll share with you guys as

I think it should be placed into as many hands for all to witness. We'll

see.

2> My favorite topic: The 1970 Documentary

Fact or fiction? There has been past rumour of Led Zeppelin filming in the

early 1970's for a documentary about the band. There is proof obviously with

the release of Royal Albert Hall and a few shots of Bath featured in the

Whole Lotta Love video that footage does exist.

This documentary in question was quoted by Peter Grant many years ago who

said that they had plans of filming RAH and part of the US Tour in which Zep

would play some of their first big venues ever as well the cameras would

follow to Iceland and off to Bath.

Now we've seen news related footage of Zep in Iceland but, is it possible

that a professional camera team was following the band during this hyped

period.

Grant had also stated that there would be off stage action of the band

included in the project. Led Zeppelin had made some tv appearences during

this time with news stations as well as the BBC. Writer Chris Welch even

captured the band in Germany with his own 8mm camera.They even made a stop

at Headley Grange to record.

Could this be the project in question? No doubt this would be amazing.

S

By this point a six month filming journey would be wrapped up and Peter

hoped to see the final product out by December of that same year.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Frank,

Guido? Damn, right under my nose. I grew up here in Vegas and have never heard of a Guido. I have a good friend Tony Gold who hooked me up with the first show 06-21-77 and many other shows after that. I don't think he went by the name Guido nor does he have any of the stuff you mentioned. I've known him for 20 years and I think he would have mentioned that stuff by now. I'll give him a shout and ask if he is familiar with someone who goes y "Guido".

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just got off the phone with Tony and he's actually Guido. Before you all get your hopes up he doesn't have any of the stuff Guido is claimed to have. He did a radio show on a local station back on Memorial Day weekend of 1989 and the radio DJ gave him the name Guido. Other than close friends he never had anyone over to his house to listen to tapes or watch videos. Tony's a private person. I think facts have been mixed up over the years but straight from Tony's mouth he does not have nor ever had any of the stuff listed in the previous email.

Apparently this is an email chain about uncirculating LZ footage, from a member on the Led Zeppelin fan forum "Royal Orleans". Nice stuff to read. Does anyone here know if this 40 second clip of the LZ 2 sessions circulates? As said, it's an MPEG2 video, compressed as hell. I would figure it's silent.

I'm do not believe the L.A. 70' show was filmed, first of all it's a rumor, and viewed by a guy in Las Vegas???:rolleyes:

I can only imagine what that 70' documentary would've been like!:rolleyes: If only they filmed Iceland 70' in full 16mm B/W or color film, oh well... there is 25 seconds of 8mm color film and that D&C clip.:P It would be neat to here an audience recording of the show also, hopefully one shows up in the future!:)

I believe there is more footage Iceland, at least a few seconds more, I don't think there is more footage from Germany 70'.

Yes, I do agree there might be more of the Iceland 8mm clip, you could PM Sam about that.

It doesn't need to be viewed in a different country to prove that the film exists :P

All of the Germany film exists, Assemblage 2 and Film Noir has the same amount of film from that reel.

in Vegas. I tried getting a copy of his video but to no avail. He told me

I can go over and watch it, which I did, but he promised "a friend" he'd

never release it. Looks like he stuck to his promise so far. But it

exists. In fact, it is taken from around the same area in the audience as

the audio is because when John Paul Jones says, "Straight from the deli," a

particular girl laughs, and she is also heard on the video. Wish I can

remember the sequence of the songs from the vid tho.

Thanks for the setlist info...I can't remember from the video as it was in

1986-1987. I do remember Immigrant Song--POWERFUL!

The guy went by "Guido" lol. I think I spelled that right. He must have

had connections because he had some great stuff I haven't seen since, and

I'm a knowledgeable collector. He has/had soundboards that would make us

cream and I know he had at least 2 audios prior to Gonzaga '68. A few

"boards" he had were 2 from Australia and Japan '72. Everybody would love

those. The Vancouver 1975 board that recently surfaced was from him

probably. He also had an "A" audience of Bath. Numerous others.

The video was almost complete, with the exception of MD. There were

probably around 10 or so cuts of around 20 seconds each, maybe longer,

probably tape replacing?? Not sure. The sound was a step below this

audio probably. I gotta listen to this 1st. The video quality was like

that of the Philly 1975 clips that are going around, which by the way, is

not the whole concert. The Philly '75 film is being released by bits &

pieces. I'd like to know by who as about 75% of that concert actually

exists on film. I think these people just like to toy with us and it's

pissing me off, lol.

Not sure of the "friend" but living in Vegas at the time, I made friends

with him because I was a wide-eyed teen who worked at his grocery store and

he and his wife took a liking to me. But his collection, or part of, may

have been to the Twisted Sister incident when they recorded at Pages house

in the early 80's for Stay Hungry I think it was as he referred to it a

couple of times.

I'm positive more things will surface soon. We're gonna enter the

soundboard revolution era soon.

I'll track him down tho (hopefully) now that I'm collecting again. And when

I get something, be shakin' not, you can be sure I'll share with you guys as

I think it should be placed into as many hands for all to witness. We'll

see.

2> My favorite topic: The 1970 Documentary

Fact or fiction? There has been past rumour of Led Zeppelin filming in the

early 1970's for a documentary about the band. There is proof obviously with

the release of Royal Albert Hall and a few shots of Bath featured in the

Whole Lotta Love video that footage does exist.

This documentary in question was quoted by Peter Grant many years ago who

said that they had plans of filming RAH and part of the US Tour in which Zep

would play some of their first big venues ever as well the cameras would

follow to Iceland and off to Bath.

Now we've seen news related footage of Zep in Iceland but, is it possible

that a professional camera team was following the band during this hyped

period.

Grant had also stated that there would be off stage action of the band

included in the project. Led Zeppelin had made some tv appearences during

this time with news stations as well as the BBC. Writer Chris Welch even

captured the band in Germany with his own 8mm camera.They even made a stop

at Headley Grange to record.

Could this be the project in question? No doubt this would be amazing.

S

By this point a six month filming journey would be wrapped up and Peter

hoped to see the final product out by December of that same year.

Frank,

Guido? Damn, right under my nose. I grew up here in Vegas and have never heard of a Guido. I have a good friend Tony Gold who hooked me up with the first show 06-21-77 and many other shows after that. I don't think he went by the name Guido nor does he have any of the stuff you mentioned. I've known him for 20 years and I think he would have mentioned that stuff by now. I'll give him a shout and ask if he is familiar with someone who goes y "Guido".

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I just got off the phone with Tony and he's actually Guido. Before you all get your hopes up he doesn't have any of the stuff Guido is claimed to have. He did a radio show on a local station back on Memorial Day weekend of 1989 and the radio DJ gave him the name Guido. Other than close friends he never had anyone over to his house to listen to tapes or watch videos. Tony's a private person. I think facts have been mixed up over the years but straight from Tony's mouth he does not have nor ever had any of the stuff listed in the previous email.

Apparently this is an email chain about uncirculating LZ footage, from a member on the Led Zeppelin fan forum "Royal Orleans". Nice stuff to read. Does anyone here know if this 40 second clip of the LZ 2 sessions circulates? As said, it's an MPEG2 video, compressed as hell. I would figure it's silent.

Ledzepfilm, this is AWESOME NEWS! The LZ 2 sessions circulate as an MPEG2 video, where??? Damn, now I have to look!:D
