Audio: Casual fans aren't interested in paying for a six to nine cd set of three shows that bear many similarities, and the die hards have most of the material on bootlegs already.

Video: Far too time consuming to try to disguise the gaps in the footage...casual fans aren't interested in a multi-disc dvd set of three shows that bear many similarities, etc.

Welk, Purple released all their shows from Japan.

That sold.

Led Zep's stint at MSG would sell as well.

If you're referring to the audio only then yes, I agree . They would sell, maybe not like hotcakes , but there are a lot of serious fans that would too. Maybe they'd lose some dosh but do Zep really need to make a killing at this point, anyway ? LOL. 

I just posted in another thread about this. TSRTS has been begging for a proper release in audio forum, with poor edits corrected, the best versions of songs like Celebration Day, No Quarter, and the inclusion of some alternate takes, encores, Thank You etc. Maybe a 9 CD set of all 3 nights would not be practical, but I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I agree.

I am just now listening to The Song Remains The Same and Rain Song.

It is just splendid music.

A full boxset would be highly appreciated...

Actually, can anyone here explain why it is that the audio release in 2007 and again now is just a direct rip of the film? Was there some legal reason regarding the rights , which makes it imperative that they have to be the same?? Or is it just laziness/cost inefficient to do a separate audio version . The original soundtrack 2 LP didn't match the film. What's the deal??

I know Led Zep exercised total control over filmrights and albums derived thereof.

I think Jimmy Page wanted to make it as authentic as possible.

I simply love this album...

Do they have total control over film rights? If so why when the subject of reinstating left out songs to the movie are we told that it can’t be done due to legalities etc..

If so, this must pertain to the filmmakers Peter Clifton and Joe Massot.

Atlantic Records/Warner Bros. execute no rights over the movie and soundtrack thereof.

Could never see a full release, but a DVD documentary with commentary by Jimmy Page and interviews of other key people from the time  might be wildly popular I would think.

But I don't see that happening. Warner Bros might like that,  but I assume other legal obstacles might exist.
