Rare video footage on YouTube 75/77

Recommended Posts

I tried searching for info on here but nothing turned up. 

The rare 1975 and 1977 concert footage from the band that is sponsored by this site on YouTube- what is the origin and is it edited? It seems edited to me because it mostly only shows the "better" parts, which leads me to believe someone has more footage but only chose to have certain parts released. If this site is sponsoring the videos, then was it approved by the band or their management? Some of the footage is filmed at stage level, which the band would have known about. Kind of intriguing. 

Orcan someone link me to a thread that discusses this?

It's just footage shot by fans or rock magazine operators looking to make a quick buck. Film was scarce and (usually) silent, so they only shot small snippets of the shows.

I had an 8mm camera growing up, those little reels last about three minutes. If you wanted to film a whole show you'd need a shopping cart full of film!
