Earls Court DVD


Recommended Posts

I saw a copy of led zeppelin at the earls court arena i am wondering if it is a bootleg because it was produced by Can A. Puss (seems fake to me) and released by Masterplan who released a bootleg of knebworth 1979 there is no mention of atlantic and the video/sound quality is rather poor (cleary not proffesionaly produced) and there are only 8 songs on it. However it was for sale at F.Y.E , Best Buy etc... so could this be a bootleg please tell me if you know.

about 15 years ago there was a bootleg CD called "You Shock Me" that was misled as being an official release. and I seen it often after I bought it in many larger stores....

I saw that too. I don't know why it was being sold at Best Buy, but whatever.

As Jimmy said recently in court - if you see something like this, it's just not right.

He is particularly upset by the bootleggers who take advantage of well-meaning fans like yourself and unknowing retailers. Nobody should be paying for this. It is freely available in the trading community

There are only 2 official DVDs. Led Zeppelin DVD and The Song Remains the Same.

Anything else is counterfeit.

There is no offical release of the Earls Court Video except what came on the 2003 Led Zeppelin DVD. What you are buying is a bootlegg.

Buy it then, I'm downloading it for free as i speak. I don't like the idea of giving money to bootleggers, but if it is in the best buy store, they already got there money for it. I do know that each store can sell different things depending on the location. There was a well know band around my high school who recorded their own demo tape and sold it at the local best buy and now where else.

The Zep video shot in the 70's is not going to look any better then it does on DVD. It may be slightly cleaner, but the video was not shot in HD. I have an upconversion DVD player, and the dvd looks better when played in 720p then 1080i.

They are aware of this release and where it is being sold but are presently unable to do anything about it. Don't buy it. It's crap.

How come they are unable to do anything about it, Knebby?

I would have thought that as it's a bootleg being sold at retail outlets, then Atlantic or Zep's management would be able to have it pulled from the shelves, pronto. Or is it caught up in legalities of some sort?

I don't seem able to edit my post, but what I should have said is it is "ongoing" Your legalities idea is pretty nail-on. Still - don't buy it. It is still shit. :D

Cheers!

Righto. To quote the taunting Frenchmen from Monty Python & The Holy Grail, "I already 'ave one - eet ees very nice!" (Earl's Court DVD, not the Holy Grail you understand B) )

The problem is taht the DVD is "OFFICUAL" in the mening that the DVD-company has bouth the rights to produce the DVD, so there is noting Atlantic could do, The only thing to do is to not purchase anyting from the company Matserplan.

Exactly. Whether one chooses to download the thing for free, or purchase a naughty pressed DVD version from (ahem) "Specialist outlets", this concert is available in full, in much better quality. B)
