Professionally filmed Led Zeppelin concerts

Recommended Posts

The Grateful Dead did the same thing for the Winterland concerts that were filmed for The Grateful Dead Movie. From what I understand they were noise canceling mics for the Dead's Wall of Sound set up.

Assuming this is accurate info, I sure wish I could get a copy somehow of the May 26th show in Landover. I believe this would have to be one night before Jimmy got so trashed he was carried off? I saw them on the 30th 4 nights after this one. And it was two nights to my knowledge after he was carried off? I would like to know how good this show was?

There is 8mm film of the date you went to on the official channel, if you haven't seen it already.

If the "two mics-multi-track thing" is true that would be an easy way to see if a gig was multi-tracked, but obviously there were no double mics at MSG 1973, EC 1975, or Knebworth, so what's the deal with using two mics?

So the question still stands. What was the purpose of the double mics? IF they were to multi track,that would mean there's at least one multi-tracked concert if you see the photo above. Then that raises the question of which show the photos are from.

And why are the known 2 microphone photos from 1970?

Just now read Jahfin's post regarding the Grateful Dead. So did they use the second mic for noise canceling at every concert? ( I find it interesting that the photo of Gerry was from a filmed performance).

DId microphone technology improve so much after 1970 that a second mic wasn't needed?

If that were true,then every photo of Zep prior to 1970 would show Robert holding two mics...assuming the band needed the noise canceling at every concert.

Puzzling,innit?

From what I understand, the Wall of Sound was retired after 1976 after only being in use for two years. From the photo below, I think you can see why. If you're interested, there's more info on it here.

This is a thread for live shows proshot, not promos.

You might want to consult the person that started the thread about that. It's still a professionally filmed performance, it's just that it was for TV. You, yourself listed Supershow which was a feature length documentary.

Who really cares about 'it has to be pro shot quality or nothing', I am just glad video footage of shows exist be it b/w, colour, pro shot, fan shot, in-house shot, etc. If people have the 'rumored / uncirculating' shows, then at some point they will see the light of day...just have to be patient. I personally enjoy all the circulating shows, and the Page 2003 DVD. I also like the Page & Plant 'No Quarter' DVD...unusual but amazing.

Supershow was a LIVE concert performance by the band. Although Beat Club was a performance, it is NOT a live show, along with the Communication Breakdown promos, unless Taro wants to lists promos too.

I have to agree! What ALOT of you need to realize is that this footage is in the quality it is, good for us if it's now in color, or a 1st generation releases, but over all, it's LED ZEPPELIN footage, it's uncommon compared to other bands filmed and that's why I love collecting Led Zeppelin videos. Alot of people just think what is on the DVD exists on bootleg already, WRONG! There is footage of Belfast not on bootleg, the 2nd Knebworth 8mm clip (which then appeared on bootleg in 2009, in incomplete form, with the actual Knebworth songs from the DVD have more footage from this film not on bootleg), ALOT of alternate RAH, ALOT of alternate MSG/Shepperton, and ALOT of alternate Knebworth. I, like alot of people look forward to the next release, but what was have is ALOT!

Yeah, I don't now what's the problem with the Beat Club footage. They dubbed parts of this footage with "Whole lotta love" as video clip.

What promos do we have else (where the video fits to the sound, not like?? "Communication Breakdown" of course from the official DVD. Than I read in "Concert File" that there was a video for "Good times bad times", but the video never surfaced. And there was shot another "Communication Breakdown" video.

Ok....

Led Zeppelin mimed "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You" and "You Shook Me" in Bremen, Germany for the show "Beat Club". They likely also mimed "Dazed and Confused" too. The footage was not shown on Beat Club until the producers made a promo for WLL using the left over footage from the session. Later, the two songs were broadcasted on 2 different TV channels in 2007 and 2010.

Communication Breakdown was mimed twice. The first time, likely shot at the Thee Image Club, was shown on Japan TV. Good Times Bad Times is heard at the beginning of the promo. The 2nd promo was shot for Sweedish TV and shown on the official DVD.

You just answered your own question. Taro started this thread, not you so it should be up to him as to what's included in this thread, not you.

It would be nice to have an informal Zep Summit Roundtable where all the experts and sources could research, exchange info and debate the merits of rumored shows. Sort of a convention but like a social symposium as well. Of course,we all know how the last planned convention went over. But it would be brilliant to gather all the folks with information and all sit around a table to see what could be determined in terms of Zep footage. Sort of like a Cold Case investigation.

If you read my comment Jahfin, I said IF Taro wanted promos to be listed..... I never said it's up to me....
