  1. Sam just posted some scans in the Memorabilia section of the stuff I collect.
  2. ^ cool pic! Thanks Sam. I love to see stuff like that. Btw, is there footage of the 1971 Peter Grant Interview you can put in the video section? I saw the new photos added to the Photo section - that is where I always go first. /sorry to go off topic.
  3. ^ WOW! would love to see some of Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, and Wings if you have any.... I must say again that I for one truly appreciate you sharing your great Zeppelin photos. I wish other photographers were as kind as you.
  4. Hi Michael - did you photograph any other concerts either by Zeppelin or other shows?
  5. Thank you Roger! it's great to see the foreign press photos. So rare! looking forward to Day 9-10!
  6. Hi Michael - THANK YOU for sharing your photos! Do you have any of the laser pyramid during the bow solo?
  7. surely that couldn't be all that Page has left in his personal Zep archive?
  8. maybe with the profits from the Vancouver SBD they can afford to buy the Pontiac or Houston video! wishful thinking I know.....
  9. Hi Roger! can you post some rare 1977 photos from your archive?
  10. Sorry Steve. Maybe it was 75? They are standing together against a wall. Maybe it was another event altogether. I need to get my stuff out of storage.
  11. ^ thank you. those are some of the best 1977 images ever IMHO - just because they show whats rarely seen.
  12. Hi Sam - that would be amazing to see if ever possible!
  13. WOW! PlanetPage! Do you know what show that was from?
  14. Thanks Steve - I was hoping you would reply. I'm surprised that there isn't any backstage photos. There are the pics of Lennon and Yoko and IRRC, Bowie at one of the MSG 77 shows. You would think they would have taken at least a few of them with Plant at least.
  15. I have a question - Are there any 70's era photos with members of Zeppelin with any of the Beatles? The only one that comes to mind is the Rockestra photos.
  16. GREAT posts Strider! thank you. Wish I could have experienced it first hand.
  17. google is your friend as is the Video section on this very site. The following list is credited to Bootledz: 1977, April 9 - Saturday Location: Chicago, IL, USA Venue: Chicago Stadium Video: 8mm (18 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, The Rover (introduction) / Sick Again, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, and Ten Years Gone. Comments: Color film without dubbed sound. Half of the footage shows band members from waist up while the other half is more distant. 1977, April 10 - Sunday Location: Chicago, IL, USA Venue: Chicago Stadium Video: 8mm (4 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, No Quarter, The Battle of Evermore, Black Mountain Side, Kashmir, Trampled Underfoot, Moby Dick, and guitar solo. Comments: Color film without dubbed sound. Band members’ height makes up just less than half the distance between the top and bottom of the picture’s frame. Comparison: Latter Visions’ video quality is barely better than Empress Valley’s Great Chicago Fire. EV did a better job on the sound overdubbing. 1977, May 18 - Wednesday Location: Birmingham, AL, USA Venue: Jefferson Memorial Coliseum Video: 8mm (10 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, In My Time of Dying, Kashmir, Moby Dick, and Rock and Roll. Comments: Color film shot from the left, up high. Band members’ height makes up half the distance between the top and bottom of the picture’s frame. 1977, June Location: New York City, NY, USA Video: 8mm (1.5 minutes) Comments: Color film without sound. Band members are shown outside the Plaza Hotel. 1977, June Location: New York City, NY, USA Venue: Madison Square Garden Video: 8mm (58 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, Sick Again, The Battle of Evermore, Kashmir, guitar solo, Achilles Last Stand, Stairway To Heaven, Rock and Roll, Whole Lotta Love, and Heartbreaker. Comments: Color film with actual sound, shot between two nights. Footage is very dark. Distance scale ranges from full body filling half of screen height to full height. Comparison: Latter Visions is missing three songs and it’s video is too degenerated. Assemblage contains the complete compilation of these two pieces of footage. It has a three or four small instances of digital problems within the first two songs. 1977, June Location: New York City, NY, USA Venue: Madison Square Garden Video: 8mm (3 minutes) Setlist: No Quarter and Ten Years Gone. Comments: Color film with actual sound. Band members are shown from knees to head, filling the height of the screen. 1977, June Location: New York City, NY, USA Venue: Madison Square Garden Video: 8mm (3 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same through Battle of Evermore. Comments: Color film without actual sound. Very horrible footage that’s blurry the entire time. Details cannot be seen. Band members height fill about a third of the screen. 1977, June 14 - Tuesday Location: New York City, NY, USA Venue: Madison Square Garden Video: 8mm (7 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, Nobody’s Fault But Mine, guitar solo, Achilles Last Stand, and Moby Dick. Comments: Color film with actual sound. Distance scale ranges with zoom lens, with band members height occupying one third to full screen height. 1977, June 22 - Wednesday Location: Inglewood, CA, USA Venue: Forum Video: 8mm (7.5 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, Sick Again, Over the Hills and Far Away, and Achilles Last Stand. Comments: Color film footage without actual sound. Shot from far right of the stage above the floor. Proximity (with zoom) ranges from band members’ height filling half the screen to full screen. 1977, June 23 - Thursday Location: Inglewood, CA, USA Venue: Forum Video: 8mm (9.5 minutes) Setlist: Trampled Underfoot, Moby Dick, guitar solo, Achilles Last Stand, Stairway To Heaven, and Whole Lotta Love / Rock and Roll. Comments: Color film without actual sound. Shot from left of center with zoom. Closeness ranges from almost a full stage view to having half of band members’ height filling the screen. 1977, June 26 - Sunday Location: Inglewood, CA, USA Venue: Forum Video: two 8mm (18 minutes & 2 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, Sick Again, Over the Hills and Far Away, No Quarter, Ten Years Gone, Kashmir, Moby Dick, guitar solo, Achilles Last Stand, Stairway To Heaven, and It'll Be Me. Comments: These were both filmed in color without actual sound. The first source shows the band closely, shot from left of center stage. It typically shows band members from waist to head filling the frame. The other source was shot from far right of the stage above the floor, capturing a little bit of Stairway and the encore. It shows band members’ height filling one third to half of the screen. Comparison: Cosmic Energy contains the encore, using a mixture of the two camera sources. Empress Valley has both sources. 1977, July 17 - Sunday 8pm Location: Seattle, Washington, USA Venue: Kingdome Video: professional video (200 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, The Rover (introduction) / Sick Again, Nobody’s Fault But Mine, Over the Hills and Far Away, Since I’ve Been Loving You, No Quarter, Ten Years Gone, The Battle of Evermore, Going To California, Black Country Woman, Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp, White Summer / Black Mountain Side, Kashmir, Out On the Tiles (introduction) / Moby Dick, guitar solo, Achilles Last Stand, Stairway To Heaven, and Whole Lotta Love / Rock and Roll. Comments: The entire show was professionally filmed in color. It is only found with degenerated video and good audio. However, the video is normally out of sync with the audio. Comparison: Celebration's video has narrower width than 4:3. The width fluctuates quite a bit in the early part, all the way down to 3:3. It doesn't compress the picture, it just simply crops out the sides. The video is highly degenerated and branded with Celebration's logo. The audio is sufficiently loud but the more prominent notes have a distinct digital distraction. Akashic's video is consistently 4:3. The video is still degenerated but isn't as bad as Celebration's and is not branded. The audio isn't quite as loud as Celebration's, but it is all natural. Both titles experience some unsynchronized time in the early part. Hercules has a little better picture than Akashic, but Cashmere’s seems to be a touch better. Bad Wizard’s video (April 2006 first issue and April 2008 reissue) has been brightened up a fair amount but it shows signs of compression. Their audio is similar to Cashmere. Boogie Mama’s release is similar to Bad Wizard. The video is a little brighter and shows signs of compression. It has a very brief splice during No Quarter to one of the other audio sources. Empress Valley’s title is the same generation as the more recent releases. It’s picture has a problem in the left hand margin for most of the video. Like Boogie Mama, it splices to an audience source during No Quarter. There are more signs of video problems during Moby Dick than on the other titles. Wendy’s title is the same generation as the more recent releases too. It’s picture and audio content and quality vary some like the others. Assemblage II has the last three songs in upgraded quality. 1977, July 23 - Saturday Location: Oakland, CA, USA Venue: Oakland Coliseum Stadium Video: 8mm (1.5 minutes) Setlist: The Song Remains the Same and Sick Again. Comments: Color footage. Band members’ height fills between one and two thirds of the screen height.
