  1. Okay, I figured a way to get these into jpeg. Here's a couple test runs for today:
  2. No, I was out visiting friends in L.A. in 1975 when Zep was out there. I live on Long Island & grew up in the shadows of Nassau Coliseum. I also saw Roxy Music & Frampton at the Santa Monica Civic. I tried to get my camera bag in for Roxy Music, but was turned away. I had to lock it in a locker in a bowling alley across the street in order to see the concert. For Frampton, I taped the camera body to one leg & the zoom lens to the other to get it in. I have them somewhere, too. Bellbottoms did actually serve a useful function back then 😎
  3. To be honest, the only song I really remember is Dazed & Confused. He was standing inside a green laser beam triangle with the bow, while the triangle spun around(?)

  4. I don't remember what order I took the pix & what order I loaded them into the slide tray, so...I'll take your word for it😎
  5. The "scanner' I got uses any phone camera to take a picture of a backlit slide or negative. I used my wife's I-Phone-X camera to "scan" which is HEIF not jpeg. Also, some of them aren't exactly HD Blu-ray quality sharpness.
  6. This is from the new scanner I just got. I just scanned 30 something slides & they were done in a HEIF format, which this site won't accept. So, now I'm going to have to resend by email all the slides I just scanned & AirDropped to my Mac. I'm going to see The Who at Jones Beach tonight, and I'm a bit pissed I have to do this all over in another format, so here's just one: I should reduce the size somehow, as they are clearer than this pic shows.
  7. Yep. And Leo Lyons in concert would make Angus Young look like a wooden Indian in comparison. Here's Macca & Denny Laine(?) at Nassau Coliseum May of 1976 ?
  8. That gets you guys a bonus Ten Years After @10/1975 LI Arena, Commack NY
  9. Okay. This is an I-phone picture of an I-phone picture of one slide in an old Sears 35mm slide viewer. Jeezus, I hope the thing I ordered from Amazon is a helluva lot better, but it's the same principle.
  10. Me too ! Last time I remember viewing them was back in the 70s, when I had bet a co-worker that Jimmy Page plays a Dan-Electro. Cost him $5.00😎 So, I know there's pix of Jimmy & his Dan-o, at least.
  11. My wife just dug these up out of a shoebox in her closet. Asked me if I still wanted them. I have been looking for them for years, now. Also in the shoebox were Blackmore's Rainbow, Paul McCartney, David Bowie; all from around the same era, 1975-1976. These are 35mm slides I took, coming up on 45 years ago. They appear to be in decent shape. The Zeppelin pix were shot from, if you were at a hockey game, about 10 rows behind & to the left of the goalie. I had a 200mm lens at the time, don't remember if I lugged it into the Forum or not. I have ordered a cheap scanner from Amazon & will try to have some up in a week or so.
  12. The Who, Santana...and Joe Cocker gets an Honorable Mention, just for "A Little Help From My Friends"
  13. I had just graduated high school & been on a new job for a couple of weeks. I brought one of those big 4 band transistor radios to work that day. My boss asked me what the radio was for. I told we were landing on the Moon today & I wanted to listen to it. He told me I could watch it on TV after I punched out.
  14. Rockin' the Fillmore with this Epiphone Dwight.
  15. Oh yeah, man ! Back in the mid-60s, we used to take the Subway in from Jamaica right to the old Cosby's in the old MSG on 50th & 8th. A Ranger jersey like that was an outrageous $6.25, way out of the league for unemployed teenagers like us. They also had Rangers players' sticks for sale, which were also out of our price range. Still, amazing to see all the pro equipment our Ranger heroes used. We would then walk down to Paragon on Broadway & 18th & buy Converse All Stars for $5.99. They were $7.99 - $8.49 out on the Island at the time, so even with the bus 35Β’ & subway fare 15Β’ each way, we still saved a buck fitty.
