These unreleased Led Zeppelin videos will take you back in time: “They have to be out there”

Another musical jewel has seen the light. A lost video of Led Zeppelin playing in Los Angeles in 1970 has seen the light after more than five decades in the shadows. (via Ultimate Classic Rock)

The band’s show at the Inglewood Forum had already been released, in audio format, on a recording known as ‘On Blueberry Hill‘. However, recently, a fan named John Waters, received a call from someone, a camera operator named Eddie Vincent, who had forgotten that, at the time, he sneaked a camera into that show. This person recorded and managed to mix the clips with the audio. You can see this gem below:

“It had some really good seats”camera operator Vincent, who was also able to record the footage in 30-second clips, told Classic Rock. “They were right behind the band. I had front row seats right behind John Bonham’s kit. The only problem was you couldn’t really see John because the gong was there, but he came over and chatted with us as they did the acoustic set.

However, having an immense quantity of them, he forgot about the recording, which remained hidden for 50 years until he unearthed it and contacted the collector Waters, who supervised the restoration process. “The music has to be out there”, he argues. “I know many collectors and dealers who do not share their material and that seems to me a shame. Music is for sharing and today you need it to get away from this crazy world. And if this film brings happiness to a lot of people, hey, well, we’ve done a good job.”

In the text that accompanies the video on YouTube, Waters thanks Led Zeppelin “for the music” and add the following: “Old concert recordings are important and should be preserved. If you’ve shot in the past, traded and collected reels, or just bought them from the classifieds of ’70s and ’80s rock magazines, it’s important to save them.”
