Led Zeppelin Videography

The entries below will typically list shows and not interviews or miscellaneous items.
Comparisons among dvd releases will be limited to the lengthy shows and they will be very elementary. Videos often have far too many faults and variations between other releases for a detailed comparison to be of any practical use. Basics such as the camera's film type and size will be noted. Amateur's camera distance and actual sound will also be noted. Less expensive 8mm cameras didn't have sound recording capabilites. In many cases, a soundtrack is added. Sometimes it's synchronized audio from and audio source of the same show. Other times music is provided as background music, without attempts at synchronizing.
Some former bootleg material that's been officially released may be excluded.


The easiest way to get all of the small pieces of video is with Empress Valley's "History Lesson" and the no label title "Knebworth Masters." The no label title has 40 seconds of distant amateur 8mm footage from 8/4/79 that's not found on EV's big box.

1969, March 25 - Tuesday

Location: Staines, England
Venue: British Supershow
Video: professional video
Setlist: Dazed and Confused.
Comments: The first few notes of this track are not available on the official release. Only the original "Supershow" VHS release has this audio (video doesn't accompany it).

1969, March 27 - Thursday

Location: Bremen, Germany
Venue: Beat Club
Video: professional video (10 minutes)
Setlist: Babe I'm Gonna Leave You and You Shook Me.
Comments: Black and white film without actual sound. The album is overdubbed. (Celebration's Early Visions cites a WLL promo from this show, although little performance footage can be viewed due to the "production." The audio is an album overdub.)

1969, May 25 - Sunday

Location: Columbia, MD, USA
Venue: Merriweather Post Pavillion
Video: 8mm (1.5 minutes)
Comments: Color footage from backstage that includes The Who.

1969, June 25 - Wednesday

Location: Paris, France
Venue: Tous En Scene TV Show
Video: professional video (2.5 minutes)
Setlist: Communication Breakdown.
Comments: This is the rehearsal/sound check. (The song was played again and followed by Dazed and Confused, and can be found on the official 2003 release with some minor edits.)

Location: Atlanta, GA, USA
Venue: Pop Festival

Venue: Texas International Pop Festival
Video: 16mm (11 & 7 minutes)
Setlist: You Shook Me, Dazed and Confused, How Many More Times, and Communication Breakdown.
Comments: Filmed in color, with sound synchronized. The 7 minute version comes from a documentary film featuring more of Dazed.

1970, January 9 - Friday

Location: London, England
Venue: Royal Albert Hall
Video: professional video (7 minutes)
Setlist: Long Tall Sally.
Comments: Filmed in color, with sound. There are a couple of cameras' footages available from the show (the official release was pieced from both). A few brief moments of backstage footage and onstage MC footage is available too.
Comparisons: Early Visions has a lot of flopped footage on their presentations of the two angles. Sometimes footage is repeated and not synchronized to sound properly. The 2011 release titled "Long Tall Sally" offers the angles separately too, but not flopped, and properly sync'd with sound. They also replay the angles simultaneously with the official release so viewers can see the differences in what's available from the sources. Their video quality on the multi-camera footage isn't as good of quality as Early Visions. The 2013 release titled "Long Tall Sally" offers almost all footage simultaneously when it's available. The 2015 no label title "Royal Albert Hall 1970" simply reissues the content of the 2011 "Long Tall Sally."

Comments: R&R and WLL were professionally filmed with audio on black and white film. Additional camera angles are available for R&R.

The other three minute 8mm footage (shot in color from ground) is also a little distant and degenerated too. The two minute footage is much closer and clearer, and features What Is and What Should Never Be.

Setlist2: The Song Remains the Same, The Rain Song, Kashmir, No Quarter, Dazed and Confused, and Stairway To Heaven.
Comments: These were both filmed in color. The first source is the longer one and was filmed with sound. It is very similar to the previous night's 8mm footage. The second source is not very colorful, without actual sound, and isn't always in good focus. The footage starts out from close behind the stage, and then the taper travels around back and forth between the left and right front, then back to being behind the stage. The distance ranges during the ride, but is never too distant. Other songs are filmed but aren't easily determined.

Location: Inglewood, CA, USA
Venue: L.A. Forum
Video: 8mm (9 minutes)

1975, May 24 - Saturday

Location: London, England
Venue: Earl's Court Arena
Video: professional video (220 minutes)
Setlist: Rock and Roll, Sick Again, Over the Hills and Far Away, In My Time of Dying, Song Remains the Same, Rain Song, Kashmir, No Quarter, Tangerine, Going To California (incomplete), That's the Way (incomplete), Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp, Trampled Under Foot, Moby Dick, Dazed and Confused, Stairway To Heaven, and Whole Lotta Love / Black Dog.
Comments: Filmed in color with sound. (A handful of these tracks have been released officially and are represented here.)
Comparisons: CDM's video quality is quite poor and the audio is often out of synchronization. It uses the official release to complete Going To California and That's the Way. Moby is incomplete. Cashmere's video quality is a little better but the audio gets out of sync too. It has no trace of Going To California or Moby Dick. EV's Heavy Metal Kids is properly synchronized, has the two incomplete songs, has a complete Moby Dick, and has much better video quality. For some unknown reason it is missing 3 minutes of video (has audio) during Stairway. Bad Wizard's Going To California cuts to the audience audio tape too early (uses the following night's video to "complete"). It uses an inferior tape for the 2-3 minute section during Stairway. There's a lot of tape after Stairway while the band is offstage. Bad Wizard's video (April 2006 first issue and April 2008 reissue) and audio quality are not quite as good as Empress Valley's. The video shows signs of compression.
EV's In the Court of King James has some problems. The 2-3 minute segment during Stairway is absent on this release. Stairway, Whole Lotta Love, and Black Dog all contain dropouts in the audio. Those issues aside, it has better video quality than all prior releases.
Wendy's Going To California and That's the Way are not "completed" with video from the next night. The first five seconds of the soundboard audio for That's is missing (no video available for this brief part). Stairway splices in inferior tape for two minutes, like Bad Wizard and EV. It has the same audio dropouts found on EV. Their video quality is fairly similar to EV.

1975, May 25 - Sunday

Location: London, England
Venue: Earl's Court Arena
Video: professional video (225 minutes)
Setlist: Rock and Roll, Sick Again, Over the Hills and Far Away, In My Time of Dying, Song Remains the Same, Rain Song, Kashmir, No Quarter, Tangerine, Going To California, That's the Way, Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp, Trampled Under Foot, Moby Dick, Dazed and Confused, Stairway To Heaven, Whole Lotta Love / Black Dog, Heartbreaker, and Communication Breakdown.
Comments: London Calling, Latter Visions, and Heavy Metal Kids cover the first 60 to 80 minutes of the show, all being released before the full show became available. Finally, the full show gets released, on the Condor label. It's video quality beats all prior releases and doesn't have audio synchronization issues. Empress Valley followed up by releasing "Demand Unprecedented In the History of Rock Music" with even better video and audio quality (most notably during Tangerine). Both titles have the standard cut in No Quarter. The video quality drops, some is missing, and the audio reverts to the "older professional source." The problems persist and eventually the audio is switched to the audience during Tangerine. (Condor's re-issue in April 2008 is the same disc from the original issue. The artwork is similar, but orange instead of red.)
Wendy's title has similar audio and video quality as EV, but has a few second more video and audio before Tangerine is cut. That's not available on older titles. Tangerine is completed with audio from the audience recording and the screen is simply black until the pro audio/video becomes available again.

Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, The Rover (introduction) / Sick Again, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Over the Hills and Far Away, Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, Ten Years Gone, The Battle of Evermore, Going To California, Black Country Woman, Bron-Yr-Aur Stomp, White Summer / Black Mountain Side, Kashmir, Out On the Tiles (introduction) / Moby Dick, guitar solo, Achilles Last Stand, Stairway To Heaven, and Whole Lotta Love / Rock and Roll.
Comments: The entire show was professionally filmed in color. It is only found with degenerated video and good audio. However, the video is normally out of sync with the audio.
Comparisons: Celebration's video has narrower width than 4:3. The width fluctuates quite a bit in the early part, all the way down to 3:3. It doesn't compress the picture, it just simply crops out the sides. The video is highly degenerated and branded with Celebration's logo. The audio is sufficiently loud but the more prominent notes have a distinct digital distraction. Akashic's video is consistently 4:3. The video is still degenerated but isn't as bad as Celebration's and is not branded. The audio isn't quite as loud as Celebration's, but it is all natural. Both titles experience some unsynchronized time in the early part.
Hercules has a little better picture than Akashic, but Cashmere's seems to be a touch better. Bad Wizard's video (April 2006 first issue and April 2008 reissue) has been brightened up a fair amount but it shows signs of compression. Their audio is similar to Cashmere. Boogie Mama's release is similar to Bad Wizard. The video is a little brighter and shows signs of compression. It has a very brief splice during No Quarter to one of the other audio sources.
Empress Valley's title is the same generation as the more recent releases. It's picture has a problem in the left hand margin for most of the video. Like Boogie Mama, it splices to an audience source during No Quarter. There are more signs of video problems during Moby Dick than on the other titles.
Wendy's 2009 single dvd release is the same generation as the more recent releases too. It's picture and audio content and quality vary some like the others. Their 2016 re-releases the original.
Assemblage II has the last three songs in upgraded quality.

Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, Since I've Been Loving You, Ten Years Gone, No Quarter, and Whole Lotta Love.

1979, August 4 - Saturday

Location: Stevenage, England
Venue: Knebworth Park
Video: professional video (193 minutes) and two 8mm (40 seconds & 6 minutes & 1 minute)
Setlist1: The Song Remains the Same, Celebration Day, Out On the Tiles (introduction) / Black Dog, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Over the Hills and Far Away, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, Ten Years Gone, Hot Dog, The Rain Song, White Summer / Black Mountainside (incomplete), Kashmir, Trampled Under Foot, Sick Again, Achilles Last Stand, guitar solo, In the Evening, Stairway To Heaven, Rock and Roll, Whole Lotta Love (incomplete), and Heartbreaker.
Setlist2: The Song Remains the Same, Black Dog, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Over the Hills and Far Away, Misty Mountain Hop, No Quarter, Ten Years Gone, Hot Dog, The Rain Song, and Kashmir.
Comments: Professionally filmed, in color. (A handful of these tracks have been released officially and are represented here.) Black Mountain Side is missing about two minutes and Whole Lotta Love is missing one minute. For the 8mm films, the 40 second footage shows the band in color at a big distance, blurry. The six minute footage spans the first half of the show, being shot not to far from the stage. The one minute color footage samples about five songs from a big distance, with the projection screen filling most of the screen.
Comparisons: Final Cut, Latter Visions, and the no label title offer Heartbreaker from the distant camera. Final Cut's is very, very poor quality. It can be found in much improved quality on Latter Visions and the no label title.
Tarantura2000's title only features four songs.
Watchtower, Boogie Mama, Cashmere, Empress Valley, and the no label titles are the only ones to feature the whole show, and are better quality than the miscellaneous songs found on previous titles. With the exception of the no label title, these are quite similar in quality, switching to the audience audio tape during White Summer and Whole Lotta Love. (During those segments, the video loss is replaced with other bits from this and/or the other Knebworth show.) These titles have differences in color balance and audio levels. Boogie Mama's picture quality suffers heavily during fast motion. EV's title loses synchronization between the audio and video for Sick Again through Whole Lotta Love. EV's video could possibly be one generation closer to the master.
The no label title has improved video quality over the previously mentioned releases, and has minimal problems with pixilation during fast motion. For some reason, they chose to mix the pro video/audio source with an amateur audio source recorded in the audience. The no label title also offers Heartbreaker from a different mix of cameras. The distant camera is used in place of the close cameras in several spots.
Wendy's title has poor video quality and the sound often seems to be a little out of sync. Footage from the second night is used during the video gap in WLL.
The 8mm 40 second band footage can only be found on the no label title "Knebworth Masters."

1979, August 11 - Saturday

Location: Stevenage, England
Venue: Knebworth Park
Video: professional video (160 minutes) and 8mm (6 & 4 minutes)
Setlist: The Song Remains the Same, Celebration Day, Out On the Tiles (introduction) / Black Dog, Nobody's Fault But Mine, Over the Hills and Far Away, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You, No Quarter, Hot Dog, The Rain Song, White Summer / Black Mountainside, Kashmir, Trampled Under Foot, Sick Again, Achilles Last Stand, guitar solo, In the Evening, Stairway To Heaven, Rock and Roll, Whole Lotta Love, and Communication Breakdown.
Comments: The entire show was professionally filmed in color. It is often found with degenerated video and good audio. In the Evening and Communication Breakdown are available in near perfect quality. The six minute 8mm footage was shot from a little right of center stage and is distant, sampling five songs. The four minute 8mm footage samples seven songs and is poor quality. The band fills one third to one half of the screen height.
Comparisons: Celebration released the same degenerated video that's been available for years. The signature PA problems have been removed from Over the Hills and Far Away. It's during this time when the audio gets out of sync with the video. It is later somewhat corrected before it gets too noticeable. The audio switches to an audience source as soon as the last song ends. The video is "branded" with the Celebration logo the entire time.
Peter Grant's Stairway To Heaven is not an improvement over other sources.
London Calling's two tracks from this show (In the Evening and Communication Breakdown) are very excellent quality.
Genuine Bastard, Bad Wizard, Cashmere, and Empress Valley's releases are of the same excellent quality found on London Calling. They are complete, unedited, unbranded (except for EV's brief brandings), and don't use any audience audio tape - the best so far. Genuine Bastard has a pressing flaw that often interferes with the playback towards the end of Kashmir. Bad Wizard has a minor error just before Trampled Under Foot.
Genuine Bastard's reissue "Definitive Version" uses new artwork and a new disc, without troubles during playback. The audio and video are the same excellent quality as before.
