Rare Led Zeppelin Footage Released

This week, rare footage surfaced of the mighty Led Zeppelin performing September 4th, 1970 at the L.A. Forum in Inglewood, California. Eddie Vincent was the fan who smuggled in a wind up 8mm camera under his jacket to record this time capsule. He took his seat right behind John Bonham's drum kit and was able to capture some of the show. Legend has it, he forgot he even had the film as it had sat on a shelf for over 50 years. It was recently unearthed and he contacted John Waters, another fan and collector to go about having it restored. One issue was that the wind up camera would only record 30-seconds at a time, but through their due diligence, were able to sync up the footage with the audio from a pre-existing bootleg. In this piece from UCR, Vincent sheds some light on its release:

“The music needs to be out there. I know a lot of collectors and traders that don't give their stuff away, and that's a shame to me. Music's to be shared, and today you need it to get away from the crazy world. And if this film brings a lot of people happiness, hey, we did a good job.”
