Kali Posted April 1, 2011 Share Posted April 1, 2011 If things go well we will see very soon new, never seen before footage from Led Zeppelin at Bath Festival 28.06.1970!!! Let me tell you the story behind this. I've got a friend in England who knows some other guy whose father turned out to be Led Zep fan back in the 70's. Ron (that's his name) lived in Bristol in 1970. Having heard about upcoming music festival in Shepton Mallet, he deciced to attend it. Just three weeks before festival he received a new Super 8mm camera as a gift for his 22nd birthday. Ron intended to film his favorite band and so he did. The film reel with Led Zeppelin was safely stored in a small box in his parents house for all these years. Fortunately, Ron have rediscovered that reel last month. Now it has been transferred to digital. The footage itself is very good and the color hasn't faded noticeably. Unfortunately, the film is silent... It's 10 minutes long and there's only two songs (as Ron told me) captured - Immigrant Song and the beginning of How Many More Times. On my request Ron send me one still taken from his film. Here you can see it: The footage will be posted next week on Led Zeppelin Youtube channel!
